I bit my tongue 
I never talked too much 
I tried to be so strong 
I did my best 
I used the gentle touch 
I've done it for so long 

You put me down 
But I can laugh it off 
And act like nothing's wrong 
But why pretend 
I think I've heard enough 
Of your familiar song 

I tell you what I'm going to do 
I'll try to take my mind off you 
And now that you don't need my help 
I'll use the time to think about myself 

You're not aware 
Of what you put me through 
But now the feeling's gone 
But I don't mind 
Do what you have to do 
You don't fool anyone 

I'll tell you what I'm going to do 
I'll take a different point of view 
And now that you don't need my help 
I'll use the time to think about myself 

The definition of friendship 
Apparently ought to be 
Showing support for the one that you love 
And I was open to friendship 
But you didn't seem to have any to spare 
While you were riding to Vanity Fair 

There was a time 
When every day was young 
The sun would always shine 
We sang along 
When all the songs were sung 
Believing every line 

That's the trouble with friendship 
For someone to feel it 
It has to be real or it wouldn't be right 
And I keep hoping for friendship 
But I wouldn't dare to presume it was there 
While you were riding to Vanity Fair
