Lyrics
You told me all about you, without ever saying a word.
Every time you opened your mouth it was my voice that I heard.
At least that's what I thought, or maybe I'm just lonely.
Believing every minute of every day, that you're the very only.

You led me on 'cause all your songs, were stuck onto my heart.
Why don't you finish what you start?

People wishing I'd come back.
I don't wanna' change like that.
People crying for old days.
I don't wanna' change that way.

Before, you had to sing your songs, there was nothing else you could do.
Well, I know all about it, 'cause I do it too.
I waited and waited and waited and waited for you to return again.
And when you finally resurfaced, it was like I'd lost my best friend.

You led me on 'cause all your songs, were really dear to me. Ohhh!
I wish your words were still clear to me.

People wishing I'd come back.
I don't wanna' change like that.
People crying for old days.
I don't wanna' change that way. No.

It's a fact and I can't fight it, it will always be unrequited.
If I had a bullet, I would bite it.
If you didn't mean it, why'd you write it? It will always be unrequited.
If I had a bullet, I would bite it.

You can't come back that many times, there's no such thing as a dull roar.
I promise I'll never make you wish it was like it was before.
I'll stop it before it gets like that, it doesn't matter how.
You'll only have good memories, the only time is now.

People wishing I'd come back.
I don't wanna' change like that.
People crying for old days.
I don't wanna' change that way.

People wishing I'd come back.
I don't wanna' do that.
People crying for old days.
I don't wanna' change that way.
