This is how a dream becomes a nightmare
From throwing smiles to playing with your hair
To pretending I'm a stranger

And my neck is stiff from looking back at the past
And wondering when I'm gonna come crawling back
But the scars on our hearts
Hold the secrets to our past

You're forever a reminder of the worst mistake
In the best situation
You're constant proof that
I hate when things are going well

Now I know I'm gone and not missed
I guess I finally made your things to do list
Sorry
I've been lying
Our bodies match like puzzle pieces
But my touch feels like treason
And you
You've been crying

This is how a dream becomes a nightmare
From throwing smiles to playing with your hair
To pretending I'm a stranger

My neck is stiff from looking back at the past
And wondering when I'm gonna come crawling back
But the scars on our hearts
Hold the secrets to our past

You're forever a reminder of the worst mistake
In the best situation
You're constant proof that
I hate when things are going well

Now I know I'm gone and not missed
I guess I finally made your things to do list
Sorry
I've been lying
Our bodies match like puzzle pieces
But my touch feels like treason
And you
You've been crying

Give me one more try
Rewrite the second verse
Of your lullaby with dry eyes

Give me one more try
Rewrite the second verse
Of your lullaby with dry eyes

Now I know I'm gone and not missed
I guess I finally made your things to do list
Sorry
I've been lying
Our bodies match like puzzle pieces
But my touch feels like treason
And you
You've been crying

    General Commentthis song is so amazing
    i can connect to the lyrics so well.
    every line has a truth to it, even if you don't want to believe it
    "so this is how a dream becomes a nightmare."
    is written in most of my notebooks
    just because that verse means so much to me

    General Commenti guess i've finally made your things to do list also relates me to an old boyfriend who i had
    he never had time for me
    and whenever he talked to me i felt like i had finally made his things to do list
