Lyrics
If I knew this was my last tear
Then I?d go far away from here
And hope the miles would ease my thoughts of you

But at dawn it starts again
And my mind replays every sin
When I got the courage I knew what to do

I?ll be around, but not with you
Cause I can?t trust anything you say or do
Knowing you were wrong, strung me along
Never thinkin? that I knew

Can?t believe it?s been eight years
I thought time erased all fears
Of falling where we all fell down before

Now I know you?ll never change
Every try just led to pain
Always seems where I wanna be is one step more

I?ll be around, but not with you
Cause I can?t trust anything you say or do
Knowing you were wrong, strung me along
Never thinkin? that I knew

When I looked into your eyes
Then you knew I saw your lies
Knew that we had we?d never have again
How we fell so far from grace
What we had can?t be replaced
Now we?ll never get to where we might have been

I?ll be around, but not with you
Cause I can?t trust anything you say or do
Knowing you were wrong, strung me along
Never thinkin? that I knew

I?ll be around, but not with you
Cause I can?t trust anything you say or do
Knowing you were wrong, strung me along
Never thinkin? that I knew
