Your eyes give you away
You smile like you enjoy being fake
Changing faces like changing lanes on a four lane highway
A melody worth searching for
Spending time on this cold, hard floor
Waiting for your call
But now, I'm moving on...

You're saying it was 'something'
You're showing it was 'nothing'
Better yet, confused
You were so much better used
I've heard this all before

Sending postcards from your bedroom
Your walls were painted white
"You'll never get this right..."
So beautiful and delicate
Bittersweet and intricate
Hanging on by a rope that's tied onto my broken wrist

[Chorus]

And then I said 'Goodbye...'

Broken down on the face of the sidewalk
From the street I see a glare of the headlights
I see a face and it looks like yours
But something's different
I took a glance and I thought I wasn't sure
But now, I'm convinced I made the right choice
Second guessing never gets you far from home

You are the lie,
She is the motive
I'm running in circles and I'm not impressed

You're saying it was 'something'
I'm telling you 'It's nothing...'
Better yet, confused
You were so much better used
I've heard this all before...

You're so simple yet, so anxious...
