lyrics

Sylvia this here is our breakup song
It's a little bit late
And I know it's been far too long
Since we've had a real heart-to-heart
Oh how I hate this part
But we can't walk walk walk around it

Stop
Don't go
Little girl you should know
It's hard to be human
Wait
I don't know
The fights were never about you
Oh why did we do this?

Sylvia say you heard it here from me
Sometimes love is hell
And I wish this was something else
The movie's not what we set out to see
And we can't skip this scene
Though we may talk talk talk about it

Stop
Don't go
Don't leave me here alone
Just to cry cry cry about it
Wait
I don't know
And now I've hurt my throat
Trying to scream and shout about it

Now tell me
Why can't we
Get back together when I say I'm sorry
Admit I
Can't blame you
Darlin' my heart's worn out too

There's only so many times I can apologize
There's only so many times we can reopen our eyes
Oh

Sylvia say where you stayed last night
It wasn't here with me
And my friends think that's not right
But who are they to judge the things we do
It was me and you
Let's not start a war about it

Stop
Don't go
Spilling secrets and sins
To girls that I don't know
Wait
I don't know
Tell me if this wasn't real
Then why do the scars show
