Thought I was in love with you/ sad thing is I think it's true
Now there's nothing I can really do/ but wait...
For the whole thing to just wear off/ for us both to just kind of give up
Best not to get your hopes up too high/ best not to try
Best not to touch/ what you can't afford

I'm afraid of dying alone/ and I'm worried about growing old
Not that I mind the idea of being infirm/ I think with all my life so far
I know it well/ I know it well
Still got a lot of lessons to learn/ and a lot of bridges to burn
And I'm saving up yours for the last one/ yours is the last one
You're always the last one to know

Moments from now you'll find someone new/ who loves the shitty part of you
And that's all we ever really seem to do/ is look for the ones who love us
Despite all the shit we do/ but the shitty part of me is you
So what the hell am I supposed to do?

Sorry dear/ guess I'm just tired
Too many trips around the sun and moon and the stars in the sky
And your heart/ it's never in the right place
Neither is mine
