Alec Benjamin – How it Feels to be Replaced Lyrics

It’s been eighteen weeks since I’ve seen my friend
And it’s hard for me to comprehend how this happened
Oh, perhaps it’s just a phase
When we turned thirteen, yeah we made a pact
That we’d always have each other’s back
And it’s tragic, but I think I’ve been replaced

Seems to me those days I don’t know time for fun
No more time for friendship
Just last week I called him up to make some plans, I said

“I’ve got tickets to the ballgame if you want to go with me
I haven’t seen you in a minute, I know it’s your favorite team
I think they’re gonna win ’cause they’ve been on a winning streak
And maybe when we’re finished we could kick it by the beach”
You said “Hey man,” and “Listen, I would love to, but you see
I’ve got plans with the missus for our anniversary”
I said “Alright, I miss you, could you call me when you’re free?”
And in my heart, I felt like something died inside of me

I guess this is how it feels to be replaced, mm
I guess this is how it feels to be replaced, mm
I’ve got tickets to the ballgame and no one to go with me
I never thought that this is how my life was gonna be
I guess this is how it feels to be replaced, mm

Oh, I’d hate for this to be the end
But I just can’t see how we can mend this divide now
I don’t think there’s any way
I know friendships fade and plans can change
Was naive to think that we would stay close forever
Maybe that was my mistake

Seems to me those days I don’t know time for fun
No more time for friendship
Just last week I called him up to make some plans, I said

“I’ve got tickets to the ballgame if you want to go with me
I haven’t seen you in a minute, I know it’s your favorite team
I think they’re gonna win ’cause they’ve been on a winning streak
And maybe when we’re finished we could kick it by the beach”
You said “Hey man,” and “Listen, I would love to, but you see
I’ve got plans with the missus for our anniversary”
I said “Alright, I miss you, could you call me when you’re free?”
And in my heart, I felt like something died inside of me

I guess this is how it feels to be replaced, mm
I guess this is how it feels to be replaced, mm
I’ve got tickets to the ballgame and no one to go with me
I never thought that this is how my life was gonna be
I guess this is how it feels to be replaced, mm
