Verse 1

Busy city street,

Cars dashing at me.

Well, I could have taken hold of your hand,

But I knew you'd take it right back.

You like to be far.

It doesn't matter,

Cause my fingers still remember your touch,

Six months, but I haven't lost track.

Chorus

The very last thing I need is another memory,

Or a faint hope of changing the ending of this story.

But I don't need to make you mine,

I'm fine watching your life from the sidelines.

Just promise, promise me, baby,

Your afterglow will always make me shine.

Verse 2

Whip your watch on wrist,

My heart gets a twist,

You'll never change, will you? I hope you don't.

You're perfect just the way you are.

I still see your light,

Brilliant and bright,

Maybe I'll never move on from this love,

But I'm moving on from the scar.

Chorus

The very last thing I need is another memory,

Or a faint hope of changing the ending of this story.

But I don't need to make you mine,

I'm fine watching your life from the sidelines.

Just promise, promise me, baby,

Your afterglow will always make me shine.

Bridge

You always say the sweetest goodbye.

Losing you brought me down,

But loving you takes me high.

And I'm okay with playing the role of just a friend.

Your best friend says I'm on the right track of acceptance.

Chorus

The very last thing I need is another memory,

Or a faint hope of changing the ending of this story.

But I don't need to make you mine,

I'm fine watching your life from the sidelines.

Just promise, promise me, baby,

Your afterglow will always make me shine.
