When you pass me by

When you pass me by

I assume that you don't care

So I pass you by in return

Pretend that you're not there


I can't allow my heart to be broken

So I guard myself with protection

I never let an invader in

Not even to show affection


But when you pass me by

I assume that you're in love with another

So I pass you by in return

And I run and hide for cover


I can't be that girl that's crying

Over that guy who whose not there

The guy that passes me by

And so I shed no tears


My heart slowly breaks into pieces

And coldness fills my heart

But I wonder if there'll come a day

When you will play your part


So when you pass me by

I assume that you don't care

But there is still a small part of me

That wishes that you'd be there


So please stop passing me by

And see what'll happen if you do

You might eventually find

That I'll stop passing by too.
