I broke down to tell you, I thought that I knew
but you couldn’t tell me what had happened to you
I still know that I’d go anywhere with you if you just asked me to
so tell me, oh, tell me how you feel
so I don’t have to guess what is and isn’t real
I waited for you, and my heart you did steal to hide from the both of us
and all I have to do is paint over the things I thought I knew
pretend that it’s me and isn’t you that I’m thinking about so I can start anew
why am I so addicted? It takes a hold me
my brain runs over my eyes, have I ever really seen?
From cigarettes to love to monotony, is it love or is it comfort?
I do all the movements, I make all the plans
the addictions the cost me the work of my own hands
I’ll just step outside of this ultimate plan and run away with you
all I have to do is paint over the things I thought I knew
pretend that it’s me and isn’t you that I’m thinking about so I can start anew
