lyrics

It's not what you are
It's what I wanted you to be
Your sweetness and your charm
Just a figment of imaginary

It was just enough to tempt me
But not enough to sell me

It wasn't what you said
It was what I thought I heard
So distracted by sound of each melodious phrase that you turned

It was just enough to tempt me
But not enough to sell me

And it pulled us apart
We're like a chocolate caramel heart
Broken on the inside
Watch how the outside melts

It isn't what you've done
It's what I hoped that you would do
But my hopes were so easily dashed
I knew you'd never see it through

And it was not enough to tempt me
And not enough to sell me

And it keeps us apart
Best to end it before it can start
Harden up the outside
Wait for the next time...
