Things That Happen

I know when I see you in the hallway
I know when we're sitting in class
That the days when we were happy are in the past
And I know my hope is useless
And I know I might be wrong
But I swear I cant accept the fact that you're gone
So when you see me walking by
I know you know that Im not over you
I dont know why this is hurting
Like you broke me in two

Show me your face
All the memories erased
Can you really just get up and walk away?
I know you're not that kind of guy
Why do you prove all my friends right?
When they say I can do better I dont put up a fight.
But my feelings stay
As yours drift away
You keep slipping and there's nothing I can say

Seems like it was just yesterday
When you and I would pass the days
Talking on the phone
Hour after hour
But I watched the hours turn into minutes
Just hoping to hear your voice for a few seconds

Show me your face
All the memories erased
Can you really just get up and walk away?
I know you're not that kind of guy
Why do you prove all my friends right?
When they say I can do better I dont put up a fight.
But my feelings stay
As yours drift away
You keep slipping and there's nothing I can say

How do I give up?
I check my feelings at the door
A zombie in a girl costume
Searching for something more
How do I play it cool
When I feel a fire inside?
How do I seek when all I want to do is hide?
Seek when all I want to do
Is go back into time with you
Act like I havent got a clue
That you're turning inside.

Show me your face
All the memories erased
Can you really just get up and walk away?
I know you're not that kind of guy
Why do you prove all my friends right?
When they say I can do better I dont put up a fight.
But my feelings stay
As yours drift away
You keep slipping and there's nothing I can say.
