It's been a while and I file my memories under "A Lost Cause." It's a shame, I got no fame, and your New Years brought you more than a few tears. So I'm fallin' and so I call and your Valentine's was less than perfect. So it's your life, but it's my strife and I think you're more than perfect. And I know I got nothing to offer you. And I know you got nothing to give back. Could it be our destinies were never made to match? Could it be you set me free cuz you're not ready yet?

So I dream. And in this scene I embrace you and I tell you I love you. You say you miss me and then you kiss me and you touch me. And I'm a big man. But I'm awake, and I'm betrayed, and you're living a million miles away. So I smile and I file my memories under "A Fantasy."

Could it be I set you free cuz I'm not ready yet?
