lyrics

She left you on a Friday night with all weekend to lose your mind
She said the feeling’s gone but she still wants to be the best of friends
And you wonder after all this time, did she ever even notice you
Acting like everything was fine
With your whole world crumbling the only thought left inside your head is you want to know why

But she doesn’t know, and even if she did would she even care
Hard to see with all of the stars in your eyes, nothing compares
And you just can’t see how this could ever come to be
You’re the guy who follows that girl around, well
That fool was me

At first you wanted her back so bad that you couldn’t hardly think straight
Never saw it coming until it was way too late
Tried to get your stuff returned but she won’t call you back
Keep telling yourself that it’s alright until you
Realize the truth that she never gave a damn about you, that must be why

But she doesn’t know, and even if she did would she even care
Hard to see with all of the stars in your eyes, nothing compares
And you just can’t see how this could ever come to be
You’re the guy who follows that girl around, well
That fool was me

It’s almost funny how you thought she really loved you
But it does seem like a terrible waste of time
The only thought you can’t ignore is a question to yourself
How the hell did you ever let yourself become so blind
So blind

But she doesn’t know, and even if she did would she even care
Hard to see with all of the stars in your eyes, nothing compares
And you just can’t see how this could ever come to be
You’re the guy who follows that girl around, well
That fool was me
