Nothing Lasts Forever - Maroon 5
A Lie - August 13, 2007
Youre not the best Ive ever had
Not even the worst heartache
You could have been great
We could have been
But life got in the way
And you got in the way
Maybe, just a little bit, I might have too.
But youre not the only one Ive let go
And youre certainly not the hardest to say goodbye to
I lick my wounds but I dont see them ever getting better.
Is that your fault? Yes, Yes, Yes.
But its more my fault. I couldnt let it go, and see it for what it was.
Ill tell you a secret, I love you.
A bigger secret is just how much I hate you.
You, for being just like them
You, for creeping in and settling in my heart
You, for never being just right, or what I want
But Ive been down this road so many times
And finally without tears Ill tell you what I told them
Without words, this too will end.
I will miss you my friend.
You knew me so well.
This was over years ago,
But I couldnt let it go.
You cant go from lovers to friends
Its just never right.
And you didnt even hurt me the worst
You didnt even betray me the most
You loved me, I know.
But you just didnt love me enough.
