I can't believe I entertained
This fantasy so long
Now I can see how plain it was
That my instincts were wrong

I know we're just friends
Have been and will be
Never will we be more
Never you and me

If you see me cry
One tear or two
Pretend that you don't
I'll make it through

For now I realize
That you don't feel the same way
So I'll be just your friend
Forever, starting today

All that I hoped was true
Now proved to be a lie
Why'd I dream all this up?
Oh tell me, why did I?

I'll save myself the heartache
I'll assume my dream's untrue
I won't let this get awkward
I won't even ask you

We'll just keep things platonic
It works out best this way
I'll teach my heart not to feel
Forever starting today
