“Is this the best that, that you could do?”
She said under her breath
Then she walked away

I miss the things that she never really did
But to me those were really the best times
Even if they weren't mine
I’m learning things
I never knew about you

If there were anything I could do
To make this up to you
Take my hand never let you fall
Let you fall again
If there were anything I could say
To bring you back this way
Making promises to break
Fix the mess that I have made

And now there's
There's something I wish I could tell you
But now I’m losing my grip
And I am falling for you
For now let’s take this slow
Oh I can’t let you go

If there were anything I could do
To make this up to you
Take my hand never let you fall
Let you fall again
If there were anything I could say
To bring you back this way
Making promises to break
Fix the mess that I have made

I wonder why our lies
Became the one thing that she shared
I wondered why our lies
Became the one thing that we shared
I wonder why our lies
Became the one thing that she shared
I wondered why our lies
Became the one thing that we shared

If there were anything I could do
To make this up to you
Take my hand never let you fall
Let you fall again
If there were anything I could say
To bring you back this way
Making promises to break
Fix the mess that I have made

If there were anything I could do
To make this up to you
Take my hand never let you fall
Let you fall again
If there were anything I could say
To bring you back this way
Making promises to break
Fix the mess that I have made
