lyrics

I've known you for years
I can read you like a book,
But recently you have developed a new look
And I don't know what it means.
Now you don't laugh half as much as you used to
And when I say "I love you darling"
You say "Yeah me too".

Do we not get each other,
Did I stutter, are you deaf
When I told you that you were the boy I like best?
There are only so many times I will say "I love you"
Without hearing you say back "I love you too".

Well I know you've had more broken hearts than hot dinners
But when we're together
We both feel like winners,
At least that's how it used to be.
So I tend to you like you're a bonsai or an orchid,
But when I care too much it gets a bit awkward
'Cause it's clear you don't feel the same.

Do we not get each other,
Did I stutter, are you deaf
When I told you that you were the boy I like best?
There are only so many times I will say "I love you"
Without hearing you say back "I love you too".

And most of the texts I send go unrequited.
I feel like my love for you's so uninvited,
But I can't help myself.
So maybe it's time that we called it a day,
Perhaps we would both be more happy that way,
But I think it's a crying shame.

Do we not get each other,
Did I stutter, are you deaf
When I told you that you were the boy I like best?
There are only so many times I will say "I love you"
Without hearing you say back "I love you too".

I know where I'm not wanted,
I'm nobody's fool,
But I don't understand why your passion cooled.
And it's clear something changed
But I know it's not me,
So go take some time to find out
Who you want to be.

And it's clear something changed
But I know it's not me,
So go take some time to find out
What life's like without me.
