"When It Doesn't Matter" as written by Joshua Gen Rubin and Angela Ammons....
I'm everything
You never wanted
Why does it mean so much to you?
I'm walking away
I'm not begging you
To please let me stay

You want to take a picture
So you'll remember
Me standing by this open door
Does it make any better?
If you tell yourself
I never wanted to go

[Chorus]
Should I say that we should still be friends
Should I cry, or should I just pretend
But it's killing me, and I don't want you to leave
Should I make you think I suffered
When it doesn't matter

You try to figure out
Why I said nothing
When you told me
It's over now
Why are you believing
That my smile is only here
To hide the pain (oh yeah)

[Chorus]
(When it doesn't matter, oh)

I'm tried of happily ever after ending
I'm tried of make believe heroes
I'm tired of taking back what I've given
I'm tired of waking up here*

And it's killing me, and I don't want you to leave
Should I make you think I suffered (suffered)

[Chorus]

I'm tried of happily ever after ending
I'm tried of make believe heroes
I'm tired of taking back what I've given
I'm tired of waking up here
I'm tried of wanting you
