Let's Not (And Say We Did)

I jumped in head-first
even after I said I wouldn’t
Now it’s fading before my eyes

Such is life...

I made such an effort
even though you couldn’t
It was all in vain, once again

Such is life...

It’s the same maudlin mood
that strikes the most hopeful
When I asked for some time together
she said

Let’s not and say we did
Let’s not and say we did
Let’s not and say we did

I jumped in head-first
even after I said I wouldn’t
Now it’s fading before my eyes

Such is life...

Break me down so I can say
for all the sympathy in the world
that another will notice me

It’s the same maudlin mood
that strikes the most hopeful
When I asked for some time together
she said

Let’s not and say we did
Let’s not and say we did
Let’s not and say we did

The End
