I'm still here, still around
You put my picture face down
I count the hours, count aloud
You count me out
You sent your signals
So I send flowers to the door
That I can't walk through anymore

Never meant to break your back
Never meant to start a fire
Never meant to hold your head under the water, my love
When you get this call me back
I'll be walking on a wire
Hoping you can take me back in spite of everything I've done

Put on your favorite dress
You're such a mess, I drag like a cigarette
You didn't have to look so nice
To get me thinking twice
I've never seen you walk so proudly
I've never seen you sleep so soundly
I'm crying and trying, you just quit
Because you just won't deal with it

We can't go back, we can't go back
To where we started
I won't let that, I can't let that
Leave us lonely hearted
I'd rather fight than sleep tonight
Please don't roll your eyes, love
I'm not about to let you go
