Almost Lover – Fine Frenzy, A

Your fingertips across my skin,
the palm trees swaying in the wind
You sang me spanish lullabies,
the sweetest sadness in your eyes
clever trick

I’d never want to see you unhappy,
I thought you’d want the same for me

Goodbye my almost lover
Goodbye my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should have known you’d bring me heartache,
almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
And when you left you kissed my lips
you told me you would never
ever forget these images, no

I’d never want to see you unhappy
I thought you’d want the same for me


I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
without you on my mind
So you’re gone and i’m haunted
and i’ll bet you are just fine,
Did i make it that easy
to walk right in and out
of my life?
