Joshua bassett - Telling myself

Started out, started out so simple
We were running 'round, running 'round like children
How did we allow, we allow this story
To fall so south?

What were we, what were we both thinkin'?
We were so naive, so naive believin'
We were still happy, still happy
How could I ignore my doubts?

I keep on tellin' myself we had somethin' 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 tellin' 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 tellin' myself
I keep on tellin' myself
I keep on tellin' myself
I keep on tellin' 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 tellin' myself we had somethin' 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 tellin' 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 tellin' my
I keep on tellin' myself we had somethin' 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 tellin' 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 tellin' myself
I keep on tellin' myself
I keep on tellin' myself
I keep on tellin' myself
