Chorus

Right from the beginning, you made the ending crystal clear.

Entered the scene, goodbye lullaby for background music, I couldn't hear,

My mind decided to blur out the

"Even if I can't, someone else will say

Those three words to you some day".

Verse 1

I still remember exactly what you said,

And like a stain that just refuses to fade,

There's a pain in my heart in that very place

Which used to light up when I'd see your face,

Like those fireworks on the fourth of July.

Tears have now replaced the light in my eye.

Chorus

But right from the beginning, you made the ending crystal clear.

Entered the scene, goodbye lullaby for background music, I couldn't hear,

My mind decided to blur out the

"Even if I can't, someone else will say

Those three words to you some day".

Verse 2

Oh, but what if I don't want someone else?

One look at your photo, rest of the world pales

In comparison to that guy in that white shirt

Grinning just so wide right beside me, my heart

Forgets for a moment that this is long gone.

It's been so dark for ages, where is my dawn?

Chorus

But right from the beginning, you made the ending crystal clear.

Entered the scene, goodbye lullaby for background music, I couldn't hear,

My mind decided to blur out the

"Even if I can't, someone else will say

Those three words to you some day".

Bridge

And some day

I'll also be on my way

To a new town, with a new last name,

With a new love, oh but it won't be the same,

If it's not you, I don't want it.

Like a stain that just refuses to fade,

You're still in my heart beat.

But I'd try to walk without holding your hand,

And even if I can't,

Even if I can't,

Someone else will say

Those three words to me some day

And I won't break his heart like you broke mine.

And even if I can't be okay, I'll still pretend that I'm doing fine.

Chorus

Right from the beginning, you made the ending crystal clear.

Entered the scene, goodbye lullaby for background music, I couldn't hear,

My mind decided to blur out the

"Even if I can't, someone else will say

Those three words to you some day".

Outro

"Even if I can't,

Even if I can't,

Even if I can't."

You couldn't,

Cause you never tried.
