You’re not the girl I used to know
you’re a shadow of yourself
I think I lost you long ago
Like a book that’s left the shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall
and I know someday that will be you
leaving me, for good
I’ve been sitting here for two straights hours
watching you asleep
wishing I could talk to you
there is no denying we both have
emotions running deep
owe if I could talk to you
cos I’m scared
cos when I try to take your hand
you’re not there
even though I see the signs you
think I’m just scared
gimme one reason why I should hide my fears
when its killing me inside
you’re not the girl I used to know
you’re a shadow of yourself
I think I lost you long ago
Like a book that’s left the shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall
and I know someday that will be you
leaving me, for good
We have been together for so long
you seem a part of me
just how did this go all wrong
and you say you gave to me your best
just to make this work
but just how did this all go wrong
cos I try
see my eyes are empty from all the tears I cried
since this perfect love is hardly satisfy
gimme one reason why I should hide my tears
when its killing me inside
You’re not the girl I used to know
you’re a shadow of yourself
I think I lost you long ago
Like a book that’s left the shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall
and I know someday that will be
leaving me, for good
And if I ever come across a girl like you again
I don’t know if I would let my emotions show
I’ll just look the other way
I don’t care what you might say
cos I’m not so sure how much of this
my poor heart can take
You’re not the girl I used to know
you’re a shadow of yourself
I think I lost you long ago
Like a book that’s left the shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall
and I know someday that will be you
leaving me, for good
