You broke a promise that you need to keep
now you regret it
and theres a few words that never need to be spoke
and you said it

You got me standing on the fire escape with nothing on
but a dumb look on my face
and I can get all my records back, but you're losing something
that you can't replace

Now the smell of dead roses is filling up the room in your apartment
I been wandering round the city, no direction, just wondering where my heart went

It used to be so easy just to take you
to a movie or the club
but at the end of every night you would never
do me right or show me love

you say your friends keep telling you this and that about me
but it ain't true
if there is one thing I've learned it's that
I've got to keep my distance from you


Now the summer was sweet but it didn't last long
and I'm back out in the cold, where I don't belong
I walked the wire, and I fell for you
without a net or the slightest clue
I know I'm reckless, I know I'm rude
I know I'm helpless, but that's old news
and now there ain't no getting through to you

Some time has passed and I'm carrying on
still trying to shatter the illusions of the same old song
so if you see me in the streets pretend I don't exist
because there ain't a single thing about you I miss
