So we meet again, as star-crossed lovers are known to do.
Wish I could say that I have done more
than wear away the soles of my dirty shoes.
Broken VCR keeps playing tapes of all the times before.
Before I knew what I was letting go. That was par for the second course.

Been smoking less cigarettes. I figure that’s something you’d take kind to.
And I heard you got yourself a boyfriend now.
I’d say he’s lucky that he found you, but for me there’s no middle ground.
I can’t be the friend I know you want me to be. I know I know so much about you, but sometimes I feel like I don’t know anything.
And the truth is that i still love you.

So if you take my advice, just don’t listen to me when I’m suggesting that you scale the highest tower and pick off all your enemies. But while you've got your gun, make good use of the scope reflecting on the woman you want to become and deciding what you’re aiming for. You’re singing, “Sometimes we can have our dream come true, but sometimes we don’t want to after all.” So maybe I’m wrong for keeping any-to-everything in, but I can see it getting messy very quickly and developing easily, when the truth is that I still love you.

So don’t compare me to anyone you met as a single girl, cause I can’t stand the thought of loving someone else, and I’m so torn apart and believe you can tell that I didn’t really want to bring it up. No, I didn’t really want to bring it up honey, but how’ve you been?
