I bit my tongue, I never talked too much
I tried to be so strong
I did my best, I used the gentle touch
I've done it for so long

You put me down but I can laugh it off
And act like nothing's wrong
But why pretend, I think I've heard enough
Of your familiar song

I tell you what I'm gonna do
I'll try to take my mind off you
And now that you don't need my help
I'll use the time to think about myself

You're not aware of what you put me through
But now the feeling's gone
But I don't mind do what you have to do
You don't fool anyone

I'll tell you what I'm going to do
I'll take a different point of view
And now that you don't need my help
I'll use the time to think about myself

The definition of friendship apparently ought to be
Showing support for the one that you love
And I was open to friendship
But you didn't seem to have any to spare
While you were riding to Vanity Fair

There was a time when every day was young
The sun would always shine
We sang along when all the songs were sung
Believing every line

That's the trouble with friendship for someone to feel it
It has to be real or it wouldn't be right
And I keep hoping for friendship
But I wouldn't dare to presume it was there
While you were riding to Vanity Fair

While you were riding to Vanity Fair
While you were riding to Vanity Fair
While you were riding to Vanity Fair
