I saw the two of us, in an old photograph
Smiles on our faces said we'd never grow old
Remember when I could make you laugh
Now this is all some kind of joke

Please stop me if you've heard this one before
Girl meets boy and boy meets hope
Funny at first, but I'm not laughing anymore
Now this is all some kind of joke

Now I'm the punchline of your life's story
I'm the fall guy, so you can dump on me
I'm the one line I don't think is so funny
Now that the joke's on me

OK, I admit it I don't get this one
Maybe I wasn't following too close
Or maybe I'm over thinking things again
Now this is all some kind of joke


I'm on the outside of an inside joke
Don't recognize the couple in this photograph
Guy walks into a bar and walks into hope
Don't make me laugh

I saw the two of us, waste of a good photo
You built me up but now I'm broke
I was too chicken to cross that road
Now this is all some kind of joke
