I watch her walk right out of my life and into some other guy's-
I don't mind because she was never mine.
I've never looked at her this way before but now she's all I see
Not Alison, but she might as well be.

I wish I never cared about her heart
I wish I never cared about her scars
I wish I never cared about her at all.

It's Christmas Eve and your family tree has hung you out to dry
These neons signs will tuck you in at night
She calls me up around a quarter to 2 cause she's too drunk to drive
I don't mind helping a friend sometimes

But I wish I never cared about her heart
I wish I never fell for her charm
I wish I never cared about her at all

I know all the pretty things you say and why they come out that way
Because I live through something's and nothing's too.
But even on a picture-perfect day
We still have to fight the rain
Tip the bottle back and it'll be okay.

Those tavern doors busted me wide open
Our smiles looked like frowns.
I'd kiss her lips if we'd remember it.
