lyrics

I met a girl
at the bar
in the crowd
it was hard
I persevered
I couldn't wait
we shouted out
a Friday date

and I hope it all goes right
I have planned out quite a night
because she really wasn't like
the other girls who were at the bar
I hope it goes well

I fell hard
I fell so hard
and it was two weeks later
that we came to celebrate
our engagement

yesterday
I was just some guy
I didn't need a plan
now today
I've got responsibilities
I'm a married man
I should've seen this coming
I should have thought things out
but here we are
here we are

oh, the boredom
oh, the boredom
up and off to work
work and back to bed
I love you, but it's getting hard to care
I see you because you're always there
oh, the boredom

you call, I listen
but clearly something's missing
I speak what I fear
but I don't think you hear

drifting apart
drifting apart
oh I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to start
we're drifting apart
drifting apart
oh I don't know how it happened
it's just the way we are

I sneak around
behind your back
because your back is always turned
you throw it back
in my face
only you know how many times I've been burned

because I'm faithless
I'm so faithless
and you're so faithless
you're so faithless
we're all faithless
we're all faithless, faithless, faithless
faithless, faithless, faithless
faithless, faithless, faithless

thank god it's over
nobody won
thank god it's over
the score was none to none
but we got out before anyone got hurt
besides you
besides me

and when it's all been done
the best thing is to let it go
don't let it drag you down to hell
and add it to the list
of things you really ought to know
learn to avoid the places you fell

I'm gonna be a better man
I won't do less than what I can
the mistakes that I have made
they will not be repeated
I'm gonna be a better man
a better man
a better man
