You don’t know me, but…

You don’t know me
I’m the one that got away
away from you
away from me
away from reality
Only to come crawling back
(to reality, not you)
before you even missed me

You don’t know me
you might think you do
or not
Either way you don’t
and, you never will
you never really had me
you never really got me
so, you can’t really lose me

You don’t know me,
I’m the one that broke your heart
that wasted your time
that ruined your life
that hurt you so bad
but you don’t see
how much you hurt me
so, I guess, we’re even there

You don’t know me
it’s okay
it’s better this way
you might thank me some day
or not
Either way
we’ll all be okay

we’ll all be okay
we’ll all be okay
