Guess we can still be friends
Guess we can talk at least
But if we were seventeen
Imagine the things we'd do

I know that those days are over
I'm glad that those games are won
And the winners ride off into the sunset
But it's not the same for you

And I don't want to play
Those nasty games that adults play
But I can't let you go
And I can't see another way

And I know that she's the only one for me
But you know that if I could split in two
The other me would stay all night
The other me would hold you tight
The other me would be the only one for you

When I see you there alone
It almost breaks my heart
But it doesn't break enough
For me to break my whole life apart

I guess we can still be friends
And we can talk all night
But I have to bite my tongue
And sometimes words don't come out right

We're old enough to know
What we can think or say out loud
To know that hearts are not just
Cards to play when two's a crowd

And I know that she's the only one for me
And you know that if I could split in two
The other me would stay all night
The other me would hold you tight
The other me would be the only one for you

The other me
Would take you so far away from here
And he'd be a man with a mission
The other me
Might even be better than this one

I know that she's the only one for me
And you know that if I could split in two
The other me would stay all night
The other me would hold you tight
The other me would be the only one for you
