Joshua Bassett – Telling Myself Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Started out
Started out so simple
We were runnin’ ‘round
Runnin’ 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 naïve
So naïve believin’
We were still happy
Still happy
How could I ignore my doubts
[Chorus]
I keep on telling myself
We had something good
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
[Post-Chorus]
I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
[Verse 2]
Don’t pretend
Don’t pretend
You’re all of a sudden innocent
Innocent
My darlin’ how could you forget
You forget the first half of the story now
I keep on telling myself
We had something good
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
[Bridge]
And now that you’re gone
I see it all clearly
And don’t get me wrong
I wouldn’t change a thing
[Chorus]
I keep on telling my
I keep on telling myself
We had something good
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
[Post-Chorus]
I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
I keep on telling myself
