Time is fleeting, love defies, and honestly she thought that he knew better.
He thought truly they'd be fine, never thought she'd want him to forget her.
But he chose to let her go
And she chose not to let it show
He said "Let's be friends" and for the first time in a while he wasn't lying
But going on with someone who destroyed her, now she finds him terrifying
Poor girl she loved him so
And she's doing her best to let go
Jealousy's a funny thing, he can't believe she's really with another
But he gave her up and now she found somebody who believes she's like no other
He tried to keep her close
But he hurt her more than he knows.
Good intentions born from cowardice can't ever lead to salvation
Good intentions always seem to get mixed up, and lost in translation
He wanted her still in his life
But all he caused her was strife
