He’s not you
I know it’s a cliché, but it’s true
He’s not you

He doesn’t kiss me like you do
He doesn’t care for me like you
He doesn’t tease me like you do

I know we can’t be together now
Or if we ever would
I know we can’t be together now

She’s not me
I don’t know if you can see
But she’s not me

Does she hold you like I do?
Does she kiss you between the eyes like I do?
Would she always tell you the truth?

I know we can’t be together now
Or if we ever could
I know we can’t be together now

Life is just Timing and Lighting
Life is all Timing and Lighting
Now’s not the time for settling down
The light falls away from us now

I’m not on my knees
I know when it’s time to leave
I just wonder if you’d agree

That we were a good team
That we could’ve made it through anything
Except for bad timing
