Verse 1

Maybe it's premonition, somehow I just knew,

When you'd return to town, it won't be the same you.

I was never the girl of your dreams,

Too many imperfections to even list.

I had hoped you would love me for me,

But I don't have a genie that grants such a wish.

Chorus

It starts slow, the drifting apart.

Messages without kisses and hearts.

You're too busy to say good morning.

Yeah, I guess I could see the warnings.

It gets old, how you never call.

But I tried to hold on through it all.

Then the I love you stops one day.

And I knew you were walking away.

Verse 2

I foolishly gave you the benefit of doubt.

They told me you don't love me, I didn't hear them out.

I thought you were the good kind of man,

One who does not give up on someone so fast.

But the distance must have made you see,

That you didn't want our relationship to last.

Chorus

It starts slow, the drifting apart.

Messages without kisses and hearts.

You're too busy to say good morning.

Yeah, I guess I could see the warnings.

It gets old, how you never call.

But I tried to hold on through it all.

Then the I love you stops one day.

And I knew you were walking away.

Bridge

I still need to come to terms

With the fact that you did not love me enough.

I thought we were stronger than this.

Well, I do have a tendency of being wrong.

Chorus

It starts slow, the drifting apart.

Messages without kisses and hearts.

You're too busy to say good morning.

Yeah, I guess I could see the warnings.

It gets old, how you never call.

But I tried to hold on through it all.

Then the I love you stops one day.

And I knew you were walking away.
