Lyrics:
The bravest thing I've ever done
Was to run away and hide,
But not this time, not this time.
And the weakest thing I've ever done
Was to stay right by your side
Just like this time, and every time.
I couldn't tell you I was happy you were gone,
So I lied and said that I missed you when we were apart.
I couldn't tell you so I had to lead you on,
But I didn't mean to break your heart.

And if I always seem distracted
Like my mind is somewhere else,
That's because its true.  Yes, its true.

I like to dream that I'm alone; on my own and by myself.
That means without you.  Yeah, without you.
I've got this feeling I don't love you any more
And I am not so sure that I ever did right from the start.
I've got this feeling I should not keep you informed,
But I wouldn't want to break your heart.

Pride is a sticky thing that makes me feel
Like I have to follow through, even half assedly lovin' you.
And Truth is a word that I'd rather not use, 'cause it's always capitalized
And it's only Falsehood in disguise.
Why must I always speak in terms of cowardice?
When I guess I should have just come out and told
you right from the start?
Why must I always tell you all I want is this?
I guess 'cause I wouldn't want to break your heart.

You said:
What'd you think that I was gonna do,
Curl up and die just because of you?
I'm not that weak, you know.
What'd you think that I was gonna do,
Try to make you love me as much as I love you?
How could you be so low?
You arrogant man, what do you think that I am?
My heart will be fine, just stop wasting my time!

And now Iknow that you will be okay, and that I got what I want;
And that's rid of you.  Goodbye...
And its not because I'll be missing you that makes me fall apart,
It's just that I didn't mean to break
No I didn't mean to break
No I didn't mean to break your heart.
