When Did You?

Julian Austin/Stephen Robichaud

 

You say you want your freedom

Well thatís news to me

How long has it been like this

How long have you felt this way

Was it something I did

Or something I said

It mustíve been hard sleeping in our bed

How long have you been a stranger to me

 

But when did you start

Pretending to love me

When did you stop thinking of me

How long have I lived with the lies

How long have you lived with the truth

And when did you start

Not wanting to hold me

When did you stop feeling so lonely

When did you start to stop me from knowing you

 

I guess that explains the late nights

That youíve been keeping

And those out of town trips with work

That last all week

And those late night calls

When Iíd pick up the phone

No one would answer I shouldíve known

Looks like weíre strangers again

Like the very first time

 

But when did you start

Pretending to love me

When did you stop thinking of me

How long have I lived with the lies

How long have you lived with the truth

And when did you start

Not wanting to hold me

When did you stop feeling so lonely

When did you start to stop me from knowing you

Oh girl when did you start to stop me from knowing you
