I used to be so quick, so clever
And I used to know myself much better
Cause anyone can see that this is only permanent
Temporary, it never hurts to try

And it's all a game
I know we'll stay the same
But repetition ends in failure
And every time I see it in your eyes
When repetition ends, we'll start over

Now I'm a walking contradiction
So tell me what's wrong with this picture?
Cause anyone can see that this is only permanent
Temporary, so don't hurt me this time

And it's all a game
I know we'll stay the same
But repetition ends in failure
And every time I see it in your eyes
When repetition ends, we'll start over

So give it up, just give up
Give it up, give up
Give it up, just give up
Give it up, give up

And it's all a game
I know we'll stay the same
But repetition ends in failure
And every time I see it in your eyes
When repetition ends, we'll start over
We'll start over

    General Commenti think that this is lyrically one of the best paramore songs.
    i can'tttt waitttt to hear a more professional version of it
    because it's already really good

    General Commentthis is an older song, i think. I'm not sdure when it was recorded, but it's a bonus track on the best buy version of riot. if you're on facebook, someone uploaded it to audio, so you can listen to it there
