Quarter After Ten

It's killed me trying to find a song to sing for you
Because honey we both know a love song just won't do
A million conversations etched into my mind
I tried to tell you but I couldn't find the time

And now I'm sitting here alone
Behind the shadow of my hope

So when did I become nothing but the best friend?
When did she take over what used to be your life?
The clock is hurled towards you
It's quarter after ten
The choice is up to you, so
Where do I fit in?

It's killed me trying to find a way to clear my mind
It hurts me baby that you're so brutally kind
The secrets I told you you couldn't help but slip
Sorry's a broken word when it escapes your lips

And what am I supposed to say
When you ask me if I'm okay?

So when did I become nothing but the best friend?
When did she take over what used to be your life?
The clock is hurled towards you
It's quarter after ten
The choice is up to you, so
Where do I fit in?

I know you know me
I know you care.
My head is spinning
You're standing there
You got so lovesick
There was no cure
And now the only thing I hear about is her
Her...

I like this, especially the chorus and the line "Sorry's a broken word when it escapes your lips" :)
