"Brilliant Lies" as written by and Ashley Hittesdorf Eugene Perraras....
I'm trying to sleep,
But this pain in my chest,
It's keeping me awake,
And every breath I take,
Feels like it's my last
I want to be fine,I want to be sure
I want to be a lot of things,
And none of them include you.
I keep telling myself,
I'm not miserable
I keep telling myself,
I'm better off without you

I believed that you meant
Everything you said,
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories
For the pain and the lies
Every time I had to cry
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories

I don't understand,
Cause it doesn't make sense
The way you broke it off,
Took away my heart,
Took away all of my friends
I want to go out
And get out of this house
Bet to begin again
Is gonna take more than
I think I'd ever have to give.
I keep telling myself,
I'm not miserable
I keep telling myself,
I'm better off without you

I believed that you meant
Everything you said,
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories
For the pain and the lies
Every time I had to cry
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories
I believed that I was
So cleverly deceived,
By good looks,some charm and
A brilliant lie.
All the time that was spent,
Being used,I should have said,
Goodbye and thanks for the memories.

I want to know why,
You're such an idiot,
I want to know how
You can even live with it.
I wanna know why,
I should even give a damn
About you missing me so terribly.

I'm starting to sleep,
A little easier now.
Now that I'm over this
And I've made up my mind
To never fall in love again,
With someone like you
Someone so confused
I just wish I would have
Realized that a long
Time before I had.

I believed that you meant
Everything you said,
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories
For the pain and the lies
Every time I had to cry.
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories.
I believed that I was
So cleverly deceived,
By good looks,some charm and
A brilliant lie.
All the time that was spent,
Being used,I should have said,
Goodbye and thanks for the memories.
I believed that you meant
Everything you said,
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories!

    General CommentHer voice sounds so pretty in this song... Though, the "thanks for the memories" bit reminds me of Fall Out Boy. Maybe I'm just too obsessed.

    General CommentShe's talking about in the beginning how she was upset about it, how she couldn't sleep because she thought about it. But by the end of the song she knows that it was a lesson learned, she doesn't want him anymore, because she finally knows he used her, and he lied to her. She is saying thanks for the memories because she knows that it makes her stronger.
