Just walking through the city
Some need to sort things out.
I don't need to know the pity
I'm feeling for us now.
We walked right back together
Back when I hardly knew
Why do the strangest things
Bring back those times with you?
Just when we're getting closer
I'm seeing something new.
Just soaking up the city
Drifting the days away
Searching through crowds of people
The face that got away
We've had good times together
Put all my dreams on you
You let me down somehow
And now I see where to
Turns out my best just
Wasn't good enough for you.
You couldn't recognize a loss in the world
I want to lose yourself
You couldn't feel at all.
Everything just ends up so sad
Too bad...
I gave it what I had.
Just walking through the city
Drifting the days away...yeah
Searching through crowds of people
The lace that got away.
You're telling me it's nothing
When I don't watch, you stare
How could I get to you
When you were never there?
We walked right back together
Back when I hardly knew
Why do the strangest things
Bring back those times with you?
Just when we're getting closer
I'm seeing something new.
You couldn't recognize a loss in the world
So sad...
