Last night, old friend, big wedding
and I knew you'd be there too
Look at us, all grown up
collared shirts and high-heeled shoes

You cross the room
just the decent thing to do,
make sure we'd all been introduced
You brought your new friend,
I brought mine
shake hands, pay courtesy its due
But it takes its toll
and it takes it whole

We've lived too long, too close
So call off your ghost

You're asking, "Can't we just be friends?"
but this bell in my chest still rings
and it's better to just pretend
that I can't see you waving
can't hear you call my name and
I know how much you hate it
But babe, I gotta walk away

You once said if we were careful,
that we could do this our whole lives
Ah, but one of us got clumsy
and both of us got wise
and now we're not so young, seems
our wishing well's gone dry

CHORUS
We've been living too long, too close,
and I'm ready to let you go
I'm ready
so call off your ghost

I think she lives around here
I see her almost daily
all I can do to stop myself
from saying something crazy

I don't think badly of her
I hope she makes you happy
it's just a lot to ask to watch your future
walking past me

I know that jealousy's a perfect waste of time
but left to my devices,
I've spent far too long wasting mine

CHORUS
