lyrics

I’d like to think of us like a fairytale
I’d love to write a song for us two
I tried to harmonise with your heartbeat
Till it disappeared from this song of mine
Into someone else’s over time.

And all I ever wanted was for your happiness to be mine
All I ever needed was your loving smile
All I ever had was a front row seat
To watch my world fall from under my feet
To which now, I’m weak at the knees.

I could have loved you
If you’d given me the chance
I could have been there for you
When you felt the slightest bit of sad.
I should have kissed you
But it would’ve made you mad
I should have never tried
Cos my love was sent right back.

You like to think of us like we’re just friends
I can’t accept the inevitable truth of that
You like to say that we’re okay
I’m kind of glad you feel this way
If that’s the mindset that keeps you sane.

And all I ever wanted was for your happiness to be mine
All I ever needed was to give to you my time
All I ever had was a front row seat
To watch my world fall from under my feet
To which now, I’m weak at the knees.

I could have loved you
If you’d given me the chance
I could have been there for you
When you felt the slightest bit of sad.
I should have kissed you
But it would’ve made you mad
I should have never tried
Cos my love was sent right back.
