lyrics

Mistakes, I try to learn from mine
But you were one I made time after time
I had faith that you would come around
But you would only come to let me down

I should have known, the writing was written
Across my empty bedroom walls
The telephone, it had stopped ringing
You were not returning my calls

You were holding back, when we were together
Now I've come to see
That you were holding out for something better
When you were holding on to me


You were afraid, of being left alone
So you kept me waiting in vein for so long
I’m ashamed, that I even let you in
When you were just here waiting for him

I should have seen, you look right past me
Every time he came around
I can't believe, that you were just acting
I really wish I would have known

You were holding back, when we were together
Now its plain to see
That you were holding out for something better
When you were holding on to me

You were holding out for something better
When you were holding on to me
