lyrics

By now I’m usually planning my escape route
Sifting through the words I’ll choose
To tell you that I’m leaving

By now I’m usually working on my next move
Different city, different tune
A different set of reasons

But you don’t understand how you’ve
Ruined my plans, I can’t
Let this one end in goodbye

I was looking for a heartbreak
I was looking for a mistake
I was looking for another love to go all wrong
But instead you came along


By now I’m usually drifting through a daydream
Of bluer skies and greener things
So tired of stormy weather

By now I’m usually counting up excuses
Tell myself that love is useless
And we’d be fools to stay together

But you don’t understand how you’ve
Ruined my plans, I can’t
Let this one end in goodbye

I was looking for a heartbreak
I was looking for a mistake
I was looking for another love to go all wrong
But instead you came along

By now I'm usually planning my escape route
But I'd be a fool
To escape you.
