How was this not already transcribed in my lyrics collection? Should’ve been, since about year 2000.
You spend half the time dreaming, the other half’s a lie.
You don’t know where you’re going and you don’t know how to try.
You don’t really have a best friend, but you think that you’re in love,
and all you can remember are the words he used the most—like the “lie” in “believe”, the “I” in “deceive”, the “her” in “together”, the “we” in the “weather”...
He said a lot of things—I’m sure he meant them at the time—but it’s not the end of the world.
It’s not the end of the world.
Well you didn’t see it coming, ‘cause you never understood
that there’s a time to draw the line when things are going good,
but you just kept on giving beyond the call of love,
and he was kind to rob you blind of the pieces of your heart,
like the part that made you give
and the part that made you weak…
And he would softly kiss you, and tell you that he missed you.
I know it doesn’t seem like what I’m going to say is true,
but it’s not the end of the world
I said it’s not the end of the line—you know there’s more to love
you know there’s more to life
and I know there’s more to you…
more to you.
I can’t help but think about you in the middle of the night
I know it’s kind of lonely but you have to win this fight.
I just wish that I could hold you, and tell you it’s alright,
but it’s not the end of the world.
