I hated that feeling

I never wanted to feel that way again

But when you’re a pretty girl

It’s impossible for you to hide

It’s going great for me, isn’t it

You tell me

You couldn’t help but fall in love

But we had a lot of great days back, then

I never doubted it for a second

Everything was just starting to happen

You’re out of your mind

You cry,

You say you’re sorry

I run back

Please don’t look at that

It doesn’t go that way

Write your own song

Leave mine alone,

I wasn’t looking for you

We started talking

And then we just didn’t stop

It’s never business, it’s just personal

But not for you

What are you doing in the crowd

That’s not where you belong

There’s nobody here

So maybe next time

It’s not enough to just meet the right person

You have to meet them at the right time as well

So that’s it then, it’s just over

But I hate that feeling

I never wanted to feel that way again
