Let down with a sympathetic promise
Never to be seen again
Got down for a fraction of a second
Now I'm fine
I don't care 'cause I never stood a chance to me
I don't know why it happens all the time
But I never have the time to grieve
Can you appreciate the life we left behind
Or was it just a waste of time?
I could abbreviate my life down to a line
I could abbreviate it now
United, so you're saying sayonara
Taking every chance you get
Checkmate, it's the end of the story
The turn down was the obvious response
Yeah, the one I could anticipate
I so wish you would leave me all alone
But the repetition never ends
Can you appreciate the life we left behind?
Can you appreciate it now?
