she said, i want it to feel pure again
it was only early on then but it felt much more like an end
she said, i don't want to be alone
but this just won't work; i need you to go

she said, it isn't like it used to be
and this is isn't what i wanted or what i dreamed my life would be
she said, i love you as you are
but could you be a bit less of what you're not?

you're not the one that i used to see
when i was a little girl, as i'd fall asleep
you're not the dream that left me undone
the little light that came to me before the sun
no, you're not the one

one day i'll find
the love that i left behind
instead of this cold, hard gaze you give

you're not the one...
