Fight for You

Yeah, I know you don't want me to say it
But things with us, well they were complicated
Everybody who saw us around
Could see what you couldn't see, exactly what we had found

You ignored it, or pushed it aside
You never gave it a chance, didn't want to try
And so you told me once, and you told me again
We were never gonna be anything more than friends

And even though it felt so wrong
I let it go, said I'd move on

Why didn't I?
Why didn't I?
Why didn't I fight for you?

I know that I
I know that I
That I should have fought for you

I didn't lie
I couldn't lie
I'd give the whole world to you

So why didn't I?
Why didn't I?
Why didn't I fight for you?

It was wrong, but I made myself believe
That staying your friend would be a great Plan B
And even though it may be true
I never should have had a second option with you

All of that tension, we couldn't ignore
We had to hold ourselves back when behind closed doors
You finally let your guard down, then quickly pushed me away
And I just couldn't come up with the right things to say

So even though I know you cared
I let you say there was nothing there

Why didn't I?
Why didn't I?
Why didn't I fight for you?

I know that I
I know that I
That I should have fought for you

I didn't lie
I couldn't lie
I'd give the whole world to you

So why didn't I?
Why didn't I?
Why didn't I fight for you?
