lyrics

Been taking tentative steps into real life
I always wondered what it'd feel like

Sweet ex-girlfriend, we met such a sad end
Watched you drive away down Ivy through my tears
I never hurt so much before or since
You confirmed all of my darkest fears
I knew then I wasn't ready for prime time

And I guess I've never been ready for real life
That's why I've wanted you back at my side
You could've jetted me back to the old lies
You could've draped the wool back over my eyes

But now that you're getting married in real life
I've got to straighten up and fly right
I've got to be the sweet friend in your mind's eye
I've got to trust you just this one time

Sweet ex-girlfriend, we met such a sad end
Watched you drive away down Ivy through my tears
I never hurt so much before or since
You confirmed all of my darkest fears
I knew then I wasn't ready for prime time

But now I believe that I'm ready for real life
And I'm not gonna let you down this time
I think I'm finally ready for real life
'Cause I want to call you a friend of mine
Been taking tentative steps into real life
I always wondered what it'd feel like

Sweet ex-girlfriend, we met such a sad end
Watched you drive away down Ivy through my tears
I never hurt so much before or since
You confirmed all of my darkest fears
