Verse 1

You'd be busy drinking with your brother,

And I'd spend hours on wait.

You were always sick, or tired, or busy,

And always running late.

Chorus

And I'm tired of crossing my fingers

And making a wish upon the stars

So that your family and friends don't need you this week,

And you can fit me into your schedule and we can speak.

See, relationships don't work this way.

I'm tired of being the only one making an effort every day.

And I'm tired of waiting for things to change.

Cause now I finally see they won't, oh no.

And now it's time to let go.

Verse 2

I'm tired of coming second to everything else.

And being abandoned when I fall.

You should know that he gives me importance,

Even though his feelings are infinitesimally small.

Chorus

And I'm tired of crossing my fingers

And making a wish upon the stars

So that your family and friends don't need you this week,

And you can fit me into your schedule and we can speak.

See, relationships don't work this way.

I'm tired of being the only one making an effort every day.

And I'm tired of waiting for things to change.

Cause now I finally see they won't, oh no.

And now it's time to let go.

Bridge

I'm tired of being a secret.

Tired of you coming home late

From your brother's every weekend.

See, I tried, but I just can't mend

This relationship this time around.

Not when he's showing me how relationships should be.

And I'm sorry, but it was never that way with you and me.

Chorus

And I'm tired of crossing my fingers

And making a wish upon the stars

So that your family and friends don't need you this week,

And you can fit me into your schedule and we can speak.

See, relationships don't work this way.

I'm tired of being the only one making an effort every day.

And I'm tired of waiting for things to change.

Cause now I finally see they won't, oh no.

And now it's time to let go.
