You gave in so easy

to the thought of holding a strangers hand

kissing in the rain

and telling me about your life that you didn't notice

I wouldn't be in it for long


And I gave in so easy to anything

Which is where I went wrong

because you showed me to all your friends

and told mine you hadn't felt this in a long time


I didn't need a microscope to see the things you didn't

i hope one day i can understand

how someone can think this is it after only five days

four in which we never even spoke


If I can do that then maybe I will feel what you felt

and maybe i won't feel so bad when somebody puts me through it

because for once I'll understand what it's like to be you


right now that's all I want to know
