Fourteen years and counting, and bolder every day
She spends her hours reading, and hides herself away
She sits there with those headphones on and fills her life with Grace
And Alice is her holy grail
No she'll never let go of her lover
She will never let go of her friend
She'll never get over Alice
And the hurt may never mend
Oh she'll never stop living stories
But the pages blind her view
So maybe she just wasn't watching
When Alice found someone new
A glass of wine for breakfast
An early end to the day
She hears familiar footsteps
And looks the other way
She hasn't swapped a word with her since that day in June
A fleeting glance will have to do
No she'll never let go of her lover
She will never let go of her friend
She'll never get over Alice
And the hurt may never mend
Oh she'll never stop living stories
But the pages blind her view
So maybe she just wasn't watching
When Alice found someone new
So give me one good reason why she shouldn't just give up now
(for all the good it can do)
Give me one good reason why she shouldn't just give up now
Cos sometimes making the effort just brings you down,
Sometimes making the effort just brings you down
Brings you down
No she'll never let go of her lover
She will never let go of her friend
She'll never get over Alice
And the hurt may never mend
Oh she'll never stop living stories
But the pages blind her view
So maybe she just wasn't watching
When Alice found someone new
