about

A story of expectation and betrayal.

lyrics

The conversation had lasted for hours
Like a warm blanket Sunday in bed
The possibilities, yes they are endless
But let's just stay here instead

She said You're just like a dream
Like a treasure washed ashore
But tell me, can I trust you?
I've been hurt before

He says
I'm not the one
Who will stomp on your dreams
And push you away
Make light of your love
Or end what we've begun
No I'm not the one

The conversation had lasted for hours
Like a sweet summer day at an outdoor cafe
The possibilities, yes they seem endless
If they can just keep the world at bay

Her phone rings, she answers
A quietly strained conversation slips through
The fingers of her delicate hand
I told you not to call
Is all that he hears
And he hopes that he don't understand

He says
I'm not the one
Who will ever keep secrets
Or make you keep yours
You can tell me your troubles
No matter what came before
No I'm not the one

The conversation had lasted for hours
A tension as thick as smog in the air
The possibilities, yeah they were endless
Why couldn't we have just stayed there?

We're not ready yet
But I'm happy all the same
Maybe we'll even give him my name
And she looks at the floor
With guilt in her eyes
And tells him the truth
With a great heaving sigh and says
You're not the one

I'm not the one
Who destroyed all your trust
Like you've destroyed mine
Or mocked what you asked for
Time after time
No I'm not the one

As he looks over his shoulder
One last time
At the girl who defies both reason and rhyme
He says
I'm not the one.
