"I Ruin Dreams Not Nightmares" as written by Mark Evan Maxwell, Joshua Stotts and Jordan Stribling....
You can have him
I’ve got the only part of you
That will matter
He’s just a fix to get you through

Held hostage, no bail
No ransom, to frail
Starving, there’s no healing
Dried out, there’s no bleeding

What’s left for you to lose?
You gave it all away so soon

Hear all about the lies you spilt
Night after night
Exchanging your body as you
Once did with mine

Am I the one, to blame for your dreams?
Do you ever wake at night and scream?
Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me

Ho-how
How could you think, I would believe
You’re as real as the, green on the leaves?

Held hostage, no bail
No ransom, to frail
Starving, no healing
Dried out, there’s no bleeding

What have you did, what have you done?
With the girl that I once loved?

Hear all about the lies you spilt
Night after night
Exchanging your body as you
Once did with mine

Am I the one to blame for your dreams?
Do you ever wake at night and scream?
Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me

Am I the one to blame for your dreams?
Do you ever wake at night and scream?
Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me

You can have him
One night
You can have him
One night

Am I the one to blame for your dreams?
Do you ever wake at night and scream?
Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me

Am I the one to blame for your dreams?
Do you ever wake at night and scream?
Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me

Am I the one, to blame for your dreams?
Do you ever wake at night and scream?
Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me

Am I the one, to blame for your dreams?
Do you ever wake at night and scream?
Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me

    General CommentI like these a bit better. Gives the whole thing.

    You can have him
    I’ve got the only part of you
    That will matter
    He’s just a fix to get you through

    Held hostage, no bail
    No ransom, to frail
    Starving, there’s no healing
    Dried out, there’s no bleeding

    What’s left for you to lose?
    You gave it all away so soon

    Hear all about the lies you spilt
    Night after night
    Exchanging your body as you
    Once did with mine

    Am I the one, to blame for your dreams?
    Do you ever wake at night and scream?
    Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
    Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me

    Ho-how
    How could you think, I would believe
    You’re as real as thee, green on the leaves?

    Held hostage, no bail
    No ransom, to frail
    Starving, no healing
    Dried out, there’s no bleeding

    What have you did, what have you done?
    With the girl that I once loved?

    Hear all about the lies you spilt
    Night after night
    Exchanging your body as you
    Once did with mine

    Am I the one to blame for your dreams?
    Do you ever wake at night and scream?
    Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
    Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me

    Am I the one to blame for your dreams?
    Do you ever wake at night and scream?
    Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
    Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me

    You can have him
    One night
    You can have him
    One night

    Am I the one to blame for your dreams?
    Do you ever wake at night and scream?
    Call out my name, pretend he’s me?
    Whoa-oh-ah-oh, pretend for me
