Joshua Bassett – Telling Myself Lyrics

Telling Myself Lyrics – Joshua Bassett

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 thinking?
We were so naive, so naive believing
We were still happy, still happy
How could I ignore my doubts?

I keep on telling myself
We had something
But 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 of a sudden
Innocent, innocent, my darling
How could you forget, you forget the first half of
The story now?

I keep on telling myself
We had something
But 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
But 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
