I’m Not Surprised

It’s one thirty o’clock and I’m alone again
I can’t give you the world so I’m just a friend
Twelve hours ago I was falling hard
Now the rain that we missed is in my heart

I wanted to trust in you, I want to confide
I wanted to hold your hand and by happy tonight
I wanted to talk to you and look in your eyes
Then you look back and say you’re sorry, and I’m not surprised

You’re a beautiful girl with a beautiful soul
I’m just a boy who’s growing old
I don’t know the rules, I can’t play the games
But I still get weak when I hear your name

I wanted to trust in you, I want to confide
I wanted to hold your hand and by happy tonight
I wanted to talk to you and look in your eyes
Then you look back and say you’re sorry, and I’m not surprised

Grey sky all around and mist in the air
I almost smiled because I know you care
And I’m like a tarnished silver spoon at the bottom of a broken kitchen sink
I know I’m not shiny like the rest
