I was happy
Which is not like me at all
For an hour
I was feeling ten feet tall
And I had myself a ball
I was heading for a fall

I got all dressed up in dreams
And I waited by the door
But you never even called
To tell me you don't love me anymore

You're so pretty
Everybody falls for you
In this city
It's the only thing to do
So I cried for 16 days
And I cried in 16 ways

I got all dressed up in dreams
And I waited by the door
But you never even called
To tell me you don't love me anymore

You said you'd arrive at 8
But you're 17 days late

I got all dressed up in dreams
And I waited by the door
But you never even called
To tell me you don't love me anymore

So I wander in the rain
As I slowly go insane

I got all dressed up in dreams
And I waited by the door
But you never even called
To tell me you don't love me anymore

    General CommentThis is what happens when girls just want closure and never get it!
    You think, "Yay, everything is going swell."
    But really, he wants out and you have no idea why.
    And she is just realizing that he really is not going to call, he is gone.
