Verse 1

If you could only stop to think for just a minute

And say it when you actually mean it.

Then it would save a thousand pieces of my heart

From being crushed into pieces of dirt.

Pre-chorus 1

You said I could turn to you any time.

Just a formal promise, I'm starting to realize.

Cause now when I need to talk so bad.

You're simply refusing to even meet my eyes!

Chorus

And just so you know,

It'd be easier for me to let you go

If you could just try to act normal.

Heck, I'd even take formal.

Just don't be so awkward,

Don't make me walk backward

And stumble into the old mess.

No, don't you destroy my progress.

Cause honestly, I know I'm over you.

Verse 2

Was it a twist of fate, or just life pointing out

All our flaws, we gave in to doubts.

I would tell you I'm sorry but what's my fault?

You're the one who's heart is in vault.

Pre-chorus 2

If only you would just open up to me

Come on just tell me what went wrong with us.

I'm still not feeling okay after years.

Why do I still feel like I let my true love pass?

Chorus

And just so you know,

It'd be easier for me to let you go

If you could just try to act normal.

Heck, I'd even take formal.

Just don't be so awkward,

Don't make me walk backward

And stumble into the old mess.

No, don't you destroy my progress.

Cause honestly, I know I'm over you.

Bridge

Did you ever love me back?

I've been wondering for so long.

Could you tell me what I lack?

Was I annoying? Did I come on too strong?

Or was I just never good enough,

Never someone that you could love?

If you could only stop to think for just a minute

And say it when you actually mean it.

Chorus

And just so you know,

It'd be easier for me to let you go

If you could just try to act normal.

Heck, I'd even take formal.

Just don't be so awkward,

Don't make me walk backward

And stumble into the old mess.

No, don't you destroy my progress.
