"Almost Lover" is a song 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.

Sky Ferreira performed a cover of the song when she was 15 in 2007.


Sky Ferreira's versionEdit

[Verse 1]:
Fingertips across my lips,
A warmth that slides its fate it gives.
You sing me lullabies to waste my time,
The sweetest sadness in your eyes.
Blinded by your perfect bliss,
Made it so hard to miss.
Fooled by your clever disguise,
Sweetest truth to hide your lies.

I never wanna see you unhappy,
I thought you'd want the same for me.

Goodbye, my almost lover.
Goodbye, my constant dream.
Try not to think about you.
But I am just too naive.

[Verse 2]:
Everyday is a war and fight.
If I win or lose, nevermind.
The way I'm sure you'll be just fine.
Didn't miss some kind of sign,
It had to come to this for me to find.
You give your heart, you give your mind.
The deepest dark seems to find.

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

Surround my love with defense,
Your back has turned on me.
You think me for a fool like fuckers.
Always do.
