lyrics

Talk around the knowledge that
My close friend has been lying to my face
And worse yet I couldn’t bring myself to say
I knew and he was driving me away

And as the anger built
From conversations left unsaid
My cowardice held true
But I would scream this in my head

When everyone abandons you
I bet you think I’ll stick around
You used to have that grip on me
But I can see what you are now

You’ll never know this as the truth
Convinced that I pushed you away
A friendship ending here and now
Unspoken

Years passed and we both had our separate lives
Things that had mattered were forgotten
And I knew I held this in for fear that I
Would lose somebody I looked up to

But I still wanted to know
If he knew how it hurt
And it’s hard to let go
When I hear the words repeating now

When everyone abandons you
I bet you think I’ll stick around
You used to have that grip on me
But I can see what you are now

You’ll never know this as the truth
Convinced that I pushed you away
A friendship ending here and now
Unspoken

I’m here to tell you
I won’t believe a thing you say again

I can’t believe I haven’t seen you for so long
But you seem different now
Admitting to the things that I had
always known were true

And even though I don’t want to let you in
I have a feeling now that it’s time to forgive
Forget mistakes, be friends, move on

When everyone abandons you
I bet you think I’ll stick around
You used to have that grip on me
But I can see what you are now

You’ll never know this as the truth
Convinced that I pushed you away
A friendship ending here and now
Unspoken
