When we first met, your hair was in your eyes
Didn't believe a word you said, but I loved those pretty lies
Now I'm the kind of person who acts how I feel
And for a moment in time, I know what we had was real
You stay with me, no, you never really go
In the bars out on Broadway, in the chords of this piano
What a goddamn mess, fate is such a joke
But I hope one day we'll be laughing together or alone
Together or alone
Last time I saw you, you wouldn't look me in the eye
I heard every word you said, knowing it was real this time
My friends they will talk in clichés on being free
But the grass is always greener when it's something you can't see
I hope that you find what it is you're looking for
I'm just proud to have loved you enough to ask for more
In some other lifetime, would you pick me out again?
Would I have chosen to stay and see us through until the end?
See us through until the end?
