(not) in love

We didn’t fall in love

I just can’t stop thinking bout you

No we’re not meant to be

But everyone you’re with reminds you of me

It’s funny how we’re both better when we’re together

But when you think about it there’s no way we’re in love

 

I remember when you moved away

I was so hurt that you didn’t chose to stay

But I moved on and fell in love

You fooled around, you lived it up

A few years later we met again

Now I know what love is and this ain’t it

 

It doesn’t matter that we drive for hours

Snap pictures, send letters, live like time is ours

I’m part of your family now, you’re all that’s left of mine

But baby there’s no way we’re in love this time

 

We’re not in love, we’re not in love

Cause I don’t feel like this is enough

 

We’re not in love, we’re not in love

Cause I’m not finished fucking shit up

 

So when you ask me to marry you and I say yes

It’s only cause I know one of us will ditch our plans

When we stay up til dawn wrapped in each other, when I tell you no one gets me like you do

Remember they’re just words I don’t really love you

 

We’re not in love, we’re not in love

Cause there’s no way that this is enough

We’re not in love, we’re not in love

I’m not finished fucking shit up

And I don’t want to fuck this up

so let’s pretend we’re not in love

 

You’ve got someone else, I’ve got other plans

So when I come to see you and we don’t leave the bed

I don’t want you thinking we’re in love again

 

Cause we’re not in love, we’re not in love

I’ve come to realize I’m not yet enough

We’re not in love, we’re not in love

You’re way too good at fucking shit up

And I don’t want to fuck this up

 

So we’re not in love, we’re not in love

There’s no fucking way that we’re in love
