Joshua Bassett – Telling Myself

Year: 2021

Lyrics:

Started out, started out so simple
We were runnin’ ’round, runnin’ ’round like children
How did we allow, we allow
This story to fall so south?
What were we, what were we both thinking?
We were so naïve, so naïve believin’
We were still happy, still happy
How could I ignore my doubts?

I keep on telling myself we had something good
Did we stay together longer than we should?
Were we just playing pretend because we could?
Was it really that good?
I keep on telling myself it’s not what it was
Did we just want to believe that this was love?
Was it really worth the trouble that it caused?
Look where we ended up

I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself, oh

Don’t pretend, don’t pretend
You’re all a sudden innocent, innocent
My darlin’, how could you forget, you forget
The first half of the story now?

I keep on telling myself we had something good
Did we stay together longer than we should?
Were we just playing pretend because we could?
Was it really that good?
I keep on telling myself

And now that you’re gone, I see it all clearly
And don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change a thing

I keep on telling my-
I keep on telling myself we had something good
Did we stay together longer than we should?
Were we just playing pretend because we could?
Was it really that good?
I keep on telling myself it’s not what it was
Did we just want to believe that this was love?
Was it really worth the trouble that it caused?
Look where we ended up

I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
