Verse 1

Just a week back, I had a guy whom I could call mine.

I loved him, I trusted him, I let myself put my heart on the line.

After a very long time, he was making me believe

That maybe this time it's okay to wear my heart on the sleeve.

Verse 2

Yeah, same old story, same old over-used description.

But it's hard to find words when grief consumes you in slow motion.

I've lost a part of me, I've lost a thousand dreams.

Trying to adjust to this new kind of normal is making me scream.

Chorus

And you should know

That even though you let me go,

I'm not really gone, you see,

I can't shake you off me,

Can't shake off this feeling,

Can't shake off your sly grin,

Can't shake off seeing the light in your eye,

Can't shake off your last goodbye,

When you said, "I'm not gonna leave you with a kiss."

Do we really have to do this?

Verse 3

And now there's no reason to look at the daily horoscope,

And make fun of it being so wrong, now that you've cut the rope.

Now there's nobody to flirt with, mock, tease, and annoy,

No sparling brown eyes to look at and drown in a dreamy world of joy.

Chorus

And you should know

That even though you let me go,

I'm not really gone, you see,

I can't shake you off me,

Can't shake off this feeling,

Can't shake off your sly grin,

Can't shake off seeing the light in your eye,

Can't shake off your last goodbye,

When you said, "I'm not gonna leave you with a kiss."

Do we really have to do this?

Bridge

I'll try my best to be friends,

Give or take a week or two from when my heart mends.

Cause right now it's all tears and awkwardness,

Not knowing what to say, I'm a total mess.

Chorus

And you should know

That even though you let me go,

I'm not really gone, you see,

I can't shake you off me,

Can't shake off this feeling,

Can't shake off your sly grin,

Can't shake off seeing the light in your eye,

Can't shake off your last goodbye,

When you said, "I'm not gonna leave you with a kiss."

Do we really have to do this?
