lyrics

I saw you in some photographs
Holding hands with someone
I thought it was me
I saw you in some restaurant
You were laughing
He was sitting where I used to be

Your back was facing me
A burning building with no exit strategy
You moved on obviously
Why do you continue to burn inside of me?
I could move on, but there's no place I'd rather be
I should move on, but I'd miss this moment, this opportunity
I would move on, but I'll watch you walk away from me

I ran into you like some melancholy movie
You were married and happy
The way you should be
Contemplated some cheap charade
But you were pretty and oh so witty
The joke was on me

Your back was facing me
A burning building with no exit strategy
You moved on obviously
Why do you continue to burn inside of me?
I could move on, but there's no place I'd rather be
I should move on, but I'd miss this moment, this opportunity
I would move on, but I'll watch you walk away from me

Hate to see you go, but I'm so glad that you're on your way
All this walking just keeps you from falling down into shades of grey
I can tell by that look in your eyes
Things will never be the way they were between you and I
Watch you walk away from me (la, la, la, la, bye, bye)

I know I keep telling myself (telling myself)
But the one thing that kills me is what I do best (what I do best)
Watch you walk away from me
Watch you walk away from me
Watch you walk away from me
