I had a horrific amount of imaginary friends when I was younger, and I finally got around to writing a bit of a tribute to them. I definitely used a bit of poetic license in the chorus, but I don't think it's that awful, and to be honest I don't think that the average reader on this site will know it isn't grammatically correct in the first place.

Also, anybody who understands the title will instantly become my best friend.


The human heart couldn't be shrinking
But I don't fit yours anymore
You used to treat me like I was the real thing
You don't do that anymore
The strings in your heart are still singing
I don't play them anymore
You never cared when I was stinging
But you don't notice anymore

I'm not accustomed to sadness
You told me that's not what I do
So how can I suffer it smiling?
All I ever wanted was you

We spent a long time in a daydream
I don't join you anymore
Los Angeles left without warning
I don't live there anymore
Our life is still happily waiting
But you don't want it anymore
My arms are still strong and accepting
But you don't need them anymore

My narrator's mind is still wandering
But mine isn't going there too
So how can I suffer it smiling?
All I ever wanted was you

You said that I'm amazing
But you're always complaining
About the part of the world I can't change
It won't stop revolving
And you won't stop evolving
But I always stay the same
Don't you love me anymore?
Don't you love me anymore?

'Cause I'm still alive when you're thinking
And I'm still waiting on your cues
How could you expect to disappear
When all I ever wanted was you?

I'm not accustomed to leaving
You told me that's not what I do
So how can I suffer it smiling?
All I ever wanted was you

Don't you love me anymore?
Don't you love me anymore?
Don't you love me anymore?
Don't you love me anymore?
