I saw you in the store the other day -
You and your sister.
I saw the way you looked at me,
And before I looked away ~
Pretending not to notice,
I saw a tear fall down your cheek
I knew you missed me too.

I wanted to run over to you -
Give you a kiss
And feel your arms around me,
Telling me everything would be all right ~
Pretending nothing ever happened,
I miss the way we used to be
I know you miss it too.

But my dream was interrupted
By his harsh and demanding voice,
"Stop looking at her, she doesn't care about you."
I obeyed and looked away ~
Pretending to believe,
That I truly loved him and not you,
And that he truly loved me too.
