Intro:  
Verse.1: 
Well I used to make the fire 
Now I'm running out of flame 
The closer I get the more it rains 
And I won't change everything  
To have you back again 
But I can't keep everything the same. 
Verse.2: 
They say it wont get harder  
And I'm gonna be ok 
But its just like me to go against the grain 
And while I'm tied to your shoe string 
And I'm breaking from the strain  
Those damn things hold on like chains 
Yeah, those damn things hold on like chains 
CHORUS: 
Was I ever really, more than ordinary 
Did you ever see me, like I saw you. 
Was I ever really, more than ordinary 
Did you ever need me, like I need you now 
I need you now 
Verse.3: 
If I was a liar I'd have a few more friends 
The chances are my heart would never mend 
And even though my conscience would come running back again  
Does'nt really hurt to pretend, 
No, it does'nt really hurt to pretend. 
CHORUS: 
Was I ever really, more than ordinary 
Did you ever see me, like I saw you. 
Was I ever really, more than ordinary 
Did you ever need me, like I need you now 
I need you now 
I need you now 
I need you now 
I need you now 
I need you now
