One year ago today, I tossed away, a quarter that I should've saved. I faked a farewell fantasy and misbehaved. I never made an effort. My conscience went. After all the time I spent. The dollars that I dropped on you, I thought you'd say that you missed me too./So here I am, am friend, the end, I meant to disregard that birthday card, nailed upon your wall he sent. I meant to turn my eyes from everything. I shouldn't see. An oath I took, you kissed my cheek. Cried yourself to sleep, but never would you admit to me./(CHORUS) I always laughed when you laughed. Cried when you cried. Danced when you danced. I lied./San Francisco payphone. So far from home. So many friends, and I'm alone. I fakes a farewell fantasy. I lied. You bother me. My conscience gone. This conversation's dragging on. There was once upon a time when you would miss me too./So here I am, a friend, the end, I meant to disregard that birthday card, nailed upon your wall he sent. I meant to turn my eyes from everything. Never made a promise. An oath I took, I kissed your cheek. Cried myself to sleep, I won't admit that you see./(CHORUS)

    General Commenthow come there are no comments on this song? i've been a fan of catch for a while and this is one of their best songs, although all of them are pretty good.

    General CommentYeah this is an excellent song, though pretty much everything from Catch 22 rocks my socks off.
