Lyrics

You've got yourself hidden away from me
You’ve got yourself strictly under lock and key

Mum's been the word for the past three week,
But whose words did you borrow when you were talking to me
Couldn't recognize you when you said that
Your words had the power to crumble what we had 


So say goodbye
And I'll pretend not to love you
I see you cry 
And your words start to sound like lies
And I…
Am sitting on the floor, 
Collapsed behind my door,
You were here before,
And you left me to pretend some more.


You took yourself to a place far, far away
Then you got yourself convinced of decisions you thought you made,
Forever and always mean a little longer than this to me,
If you look up the definition, I think you'd tend to agree.


So say goodbye
And I'll pretend not to love you
I see you cry 
And your words start to sound like lies
And I
Am sitting on the floor, 
Collapsed behind my door,
You were here before,
And you left me to pretend some more.


And it’s easy to be mad,
It’s a little harder to be sad,
But how long must we pretend?


When I start to miss you
I wanna live in the dark
Turn out all the light bulbs
And tend my burnt out heart
How’s your heart?
Fine?
No, really
How’s your heart?


So say goodbye
And I'll pretend not to love you
I see you cry 
And your words start to sound like lies
And I
Am sitting on the floor, 
I collapsed behind my door,
Right after you left me to pretend some more.
