Lost Connection

Youíre sorry you were sad inside and didnít say a word
Youíre sorry for the things you thought, the things I never heard
Youíre sorry that you dragged me down, and wore me to my core
Youíre sorry that you let me go when I was such a bore.

Youíre angry that I hold you high and wonít give you a chance
Youíre angry that our friendship has become a bad romance
Youíre angry I donít wear your clothes, or call you day and night
Youíre angry that this time around your words canít make it right.

Iím frightened that I canít move on, I canít seem to let go
Iím frightened Iíve forgotten how to smile at your jokes
Iím frightened that weíve gotten here and I wish that this would end
Iím frightened that itís not the same and we canít seem to pretend.

Iím sorry that I tied you down and wouldnít let you go
Iím sorry I resented you for leaving me alone
Iím sorry that I needed you, when you only wanted slack
Iím sorry that I loved you, when you didnít love me back.
