Sometimes you just don't feel like you deserve the one thing that you most want. – Sharlynn


I can tell it's you by the time of night you call
Once the world falls asleep, so she doesn't know
You say we're just friends, maybe once upon a time
But something has changed, so this is goodbye
We can't be friends, 'cause

What if I say I love you? Do you know what that would mean?
How that would change things?
What if I say I want you? I'll tell you what that would mean
You'd break her heart for me

I remember when you asked me what we were
Looking back I know why; you'd just met her
I didn't say it then and I can't say it tonight
Trust me, you're better off with her in your life
And now we can't be friends, 'cause

You know who I am, always ripping apart at the seams
Babe, I can't let you leave her, for someone like me
