Bubblegum (You Were Never There For Me)

You said that you would always be there for me
I was so blind that I could not see
That you were just playing me for a fool

We were friends, that was true
But I began to change, you stayed the same
How did this happen, who’s been writing my story

You and I would share bubblegum every day of the summer
But I realized that you were never really here
Now the bubblegum has gone stale
And the time has come for me to say goodbye
Because you were never there for me

Oh yeah, we did have some fun
But I was the only one
They could see, and instead of joining in, they made fun of me
My mother was full of shame, my father told me to behave
They both knew that it was time for you to go

You and I would share bubblegum every day of the summer
But I realized that you were never really here
Now the bubblegum has gone stale
And the time has come for me to say goodbye
Because you were never there for me

I should have known that this day would come
When I would have to choose
It was this: the world or my imagination
I have to find some real friends
The kind of friends other people can see
It’s not fair, but you will have to go…

You and I would share bubblegum every day of the summer
But I realized that you were never really here
Now the bubblegum has gone stale
And the time has come for me to say goodbye
Because you were never there for me

I wonder why you were never there for me
How can someone like you not be there for me?
