She

[1]
You try to understand
Why you don’t love her anymore
You try to take her hand
And tell her that you’re sorry
You don’t want it to be real
Your lives were so entwined
You used to love her so much…

[2]
What happened to your heart?
Has is gone cold on you?
Did you forget to read the part
That tells you love is cruel
You ignored the ones that said
‘Love is never easy’
You thought you had it figured.

[Chorus]

And she thought she did too,
She thought she could trust you
And loved you with everything she had
But you couldn’t take it,
You just had to break it apart
Was it just a passing fad?

[3]
You both seem so different now
And wanting different things
And yet you wonder how
You went such different ways
You thought it was forever
But learned that people change…
You thought it wouldn’t matter to you.

[Chorus 2]
And she tried to teach you;
She thought you would learn, too,
That love takes up everything you have
But you couldn’t take it,
You just had to break it apart
Was it just a passing fad?

[Bridge]
But when people try to teach you things
Listen and learn!
They usually know what they’re talking about, yeah.

[Chorus 3]
And she tried to teach you
But despite your ignorance
She loved you with everything she had
And she tried to show you that,
while love isn’t easy,
It’s worth it in the end…
The end.
