Guess we can still be friends
Guess we can talk at least
But if we were seventeen
Imagine the things we'd do

I know that those days are over,
I'm glad that those games are won
The winners ride off into the sunset
But it's not the same for you

And I don't wanna play those nasty games that adults play
But I don't want to let you go, and I can't see another way

And I know that she's the only one for me
And you know that if I could split in two

The other me
Would stay all night

The other me
Would hold you tight

The other me
Would be the only one for you

When I see you there alone
It almost breaks my heart
But it doesn't break enough
For me to break my whole life apart

Guess we can still be friends
And we can talk all night
But I have to bite my tongue
And sometimes words don't come out right

We're old enough to know what we can't think or say out loud
To know that hearts are not just cards to play when two's a crowd

And I know that she's the only one for me
And you know that if I could split in two

The other me
Would stay all night

The other me
Would hold you tight

The other me
Would be the only one for you

The other me
Would take you so far away from here

And he'd be
A man with a mission

The other me
Might even be better than this one

And I know that she's the only one for me
And you know that if I could split in two

The other me
Would stay all night

The other me
Would hold you tight

The other me
Would be the only one for you.
