I gave you a red rose
you wanted a blue one
I gave you my heart and
you tore me a new one
The hindsight is blinding
as far as the eye can see
You say life's too short--
well, you sure could have fooled me

There are one or two things that I am still tempted to say
It's either awkward or impossible depending on the day

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Fondness makes the heart to wander

I took you to dinner
the prices were shocking
It was tough conversation
you did all the talking
Look out for numero uno
here endeth the lesson
I guess it'd be funny
if it weren't so depressing

Found an old piece of paper said
"always remember somebody loves me"
Might as well be a deed to the Brooklyn bridge
for all the good that does me here and now

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Fondness makes the heart to wander

It's hardly the end of the world

The other-fish in-the-sea approach
it just ain't ringing true
I met a hundred people yesterday
none of them were you

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Fondness makes the heart to wander
