Telling Someone Else

from Going About This by Andy McGarvie

lyrics

You didn't wanna know me and I guess that's not surprising
It's just the way that these things end up
So when she came and found me, picked up the pieces all around me
he took over the place that you'd kept
And though I've told her my secrets, I know she'll keep them, but sometimes I just tell her too much

And now I'm telling someone else about my day
I'm saying all the things that we used to say
And of course it's sad we're over but it's what we had to do
Now I'm telling someone else about you

I know that you'll tell him about all my imperfections
You'll realise you're happier now
But please do not forget me, 'cause all we got is the memories
We just couldn't make a future work out
And though we both say 'I love you' to different people now both new
That doesn't mean that ours weren't once true
And it doesn't mean I wanna forget you

And now I'm telling someone else about my day
I'm saying all the things that we used to say
And of course it's sad we're over but it's what we had to do
Now I'm telling someone else about you

And now I'm telling someone else about my day
I'm saying all the things we used to say
Though my heart is with her now, and for you and him that's true
I'm still telling someone else about you
It doesn’t mean that ours weren’t true
And it doesn’t mean I wanna forget you…
