Song lyric: the feelings of one person in a relationship with a non-committed partner
        Almost

I was almost like a father to your children
Almost like a husband to you
We were almost like a family to the folks next door.
Close enough that no one ever knew.
Sometimes, I swear, I thought I knew you.
I was where I wanted to be.
Sometimes it felt like you felt that way too.
You were almost Heaven to me.

I didn't see it coming
I never thought you'd go.
I needed you so badly
How was I to know?
I fell so hard that I lost track
Of how much you were holding back
Loving eyes are blind, but now I see...
Almost isn't good enough for me.

I almost think you wanted me to hate you.
It made it so much easier to leave.
I almost wish I could win you back again,
But that's one trick I don't have up my sleeve.
Sometimes, I sit here in our bedroom.
I almost can forgive the things you've done.
You never made a promise that you didn't keep
While you were looking out for number one.

I didn't see it coming
I never thought you'd go.
I needed you so badly
How was I to know?
I fell so hard that I lost track
Of how much you were holding back
Loving eyes are blind, but now I see...
Almost isn't good enough for me.
Almost isn't good enough for me.
