The Street This Morning

 

I saw you on the street this morning

And I tried to catch your eye

Yeah, I saw you out there this morning
You know we never even said goodbye

You left, forgotten like a promise
That you never meant to lie
Laid bare on the table before us 
Might have been better if you cried

Oh, I know it wasn’t that easy 
And I know it was the only way
And I don't blame you, not for leaving
I might have gone and done the same 

I saw you on the street this morning
But I never caught your eye 
I thought just for a moment
I’d be forgiven over time 

But I know you never saw me
And I suppose that it's alright
Another stranger in the background
Just a backdrop in your life

Oh, I know that it wasn’t that easy
And I know life just isn't fair
I was hoping that you could forgive me
But you can't if I'm not there

 I saw you on the street this morning
And I tried to catch your eye
Yeah, I saw you out there this morning
You know we never even said goodbye
