I’ve played this game before You say It’ll be alright I smile Because there’s nothing left to say But what we both mean is Goodbye. I’ve done this dance before You say It’s almost over I sigh And say It’s never over. You smile as if I made a joke We both know I’m not really laughing And it’s not going to be Alright. I’ve done this before But not with you I thought you were better than that I hoped. Platitudes don’t help anyone Except maybe the people who speak them. Did you feel like you’d done something? Telling someone who’s falling That it’s almost over Is just telling them They’re about to hit the ground. Maybe you felt like you’d finished with me Well I don’t get over people That fast Better you had said nothing Than left me with that.
