“Almost Lover” is the first single released from A Fine Frenzy’s debut album One Cell in the Sea. The single experienced success in Europe. The single was a huge success in Slovenia, being one of the most popular songs of 2008 there, along with Duffy’s “Mercy”. However, Slovenia has no official singles chart as singles are not sold there. On all unofficial airplay-only charts, the song reached number one. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

A Fine Frenzy – Almost Lover Lyrics:
Your fingertips across my skin.
The palm trees swaying in the wind, images.
You sang me Spanish lullabies.
The sweetest sadness in your eyes, clever trick.

Well, I’d never want to see you unhappy.
I thought you’d want the same for me.

Goodbye, my almost lover.
Goodbye, my hopeless dream.
I’m trying not to think about you.
Can’t you just let me be?

So long, my luckless romance.
My back is turned on you.
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache.
Almost lovers always do.

We walked along a crowded street.
You took my hand and danced with me in the shade.
And when you left you kissed my lips.
You told me you would never ever forget these images, no.

Well, I’d never want to see you unhappy.
I thought you’d want the same for me.

Goodbye, my almost lover.
Goodbye, my hopeless dream.
I’m trying not to think about you.
Can’t you just let me be?

So long, my luckless romance.
My back is turned on you.
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache.
Almost lovers always do.

I cannot go to the ocean.
I cannot drive the streets at night.
I cannot wake up in the morning.
Without you on my mind.

So you’re gone and I’m haunted.
And I bet you are just fine.
Did I make it that easy to walk.
Right in and out of my life?

Goodbye, my almost lover.
Goodbye, my hopeless dream.
I’m trying not to think about you.
Why can’t you just let me be?

So long, my luckless romance.
My back is turned on you.
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache.
Almost lovers always do.
