    Almost Doesn't Count

    I almost believed all those sweet things that you said
    I almost wanted the happy pictures in my head
    I almost believed it when you said you'd call the next day
    I almost made excuses when the day passed away
    I almost believed all the lies that you told
    And almost gave you my heart to keep and to hold
    I almost believed you, when you said I was the one
    Almost followed you, when you promised the sun
    I almost believed you were the man of my dreams
    Then I remembered that everything is not as it seems
    I almost thought you were the soulmate I'd finally found
    But then it all came back to me, that almost doesn't count
