Helena, don't walk away
Before you give me back my heart
If it were mine, it would be yours to take
I'm sorry I've let down my guard, oh Helena

You looked so sweet
I should have seen
While I was playing for fun
You were playing for keeps

You win, I lose, is there some way
You can leave me in your debt
So my girl and I can live to die another day
On that day I won't forget you, Helena

You look so sweet waiting for me
While I wait for her to give me any reason to leave
Don't waste your pretty sympathy
She's gonna be just fine

And Helena, so will we
So will everything in time, mmm

Helena, don't walk away
Did you hear one word I said?
Oh well, I never really liked us anyway
And I forgot her, I'll forget you, Helena

You're not that sweet and neither is she
Go ahead and tell her anything you want
'Cause Helena, guys like me never sleep alone at night
I don't need your sympathy 'cause I'll always be just fine

Yeah, I'll always be just fine
Yeah, I'll always be just fine
La la la, la la la, la la la, la la
