For all the good you say it does
Seems no better when you've had your say
You may believe it's just because
Words get colder when you've gone away
I thought I understood what I was to you

And I don't wanna feel this way, no
I don't wanna say I'm just a friend
I don't wanna wait around here

'Cause you don't wanna feel no pain again
We just lie about it
As we become shadows of ourselves

Some may fear committed lives
I sure am one of them without you
Does it come to you as some surprise?
I laid the ground beneath to doubt you
Was it ever, girl, something you could hold?

I don't wanna feel this way, no
I don't wanna say I'm just a friend
I don't wanna wait around here

'Cause you don't wanna feel no pain again
We just lie about it
As we become shadows of ourselves

And I don't wanna look away
And I don't wanna be the one denied
It ain't no fault of mine
If someone somewhere told you lies

We don't talk about it
Just become shadows of ourselves
And we don't talk about it
Just become shadows of ourselves

And I don't wanna feel this way, no
I don't wanna say I'm just a friend
I don't wanna wait around here

'Cause you don't wanna feel no pain again
We just lie about it
As we become shadows of ourselves

And I don't wanna look away
And I don't wanna be the one denied
It ain't no fault of mine
If someone somewhere told you lies

We don't talk about it
Just become shadows of ourselves
We don't talk about it
We just become shadows of ourselves
