how could i have let you slip away that night?
i dropped you at your grandpa's house and set out on that long drive
but try as i might, i can't recall making it home alright
feels like my foot's still pressing on the gas, seatbelt holding me tight

and how could you always fall for someone new
when you know that i've been waiting here for you for such a long time?
writing these songs, gently urging you along
i guess i had you pegged all wrong, though you had me just right

still it don't seem right for us to just hang out at christmastime
and act like everything is fine, wave another year by
i don't believe i was meant to be one of these
sad men who pretends he's happy, buries his feelings inside

and as for you, i guess this song will have to do
oh cassandra if you only knew just how much i've loved you
although our timing was bad, you're the greatest love i've ever had
now don't you think that's kind of sad?
