Oh you, not you, no way not again,
can't trust you, love you, not like i did.
confused little kid on the inside right,
bruised up past, it's a hard knock life.
alright, i'll give you this one chance,
step light on a floor that's got broken glass.
see a shard in your heal, how does it feel?
must sting and burn to know, what's real.
you can throw 4 letters at me, all you like,
it won't change what's wrong from, what's right.
the past few weeks were nice, i won't lie.
these branches have thorns and they're hard to climb.
i need to stay here, at the bottom with my friends,
you're wreckless, selfish, admit what you did.
there's plenty out there that'll spell it correctly,
today i leave you unlike, the day you left me.


go on, move on, there's another one,
and another one,
and another one,
give me one reason i should stop breathin'
for this one, no not for this one.

go on, move on, there's another one,
and another one,
and another one,
give me one reason i should stop breathin'
for this one, no not for this one.


theres another one and you make it so hard,
my reason for breathin in sixteen bars,
with your hand bag heart thats louis v leather,
i tried to get inside but the rain was much better.
pulled the weeds planted seeds thinkin this would grow
but i'm done playin that johnny appleseed role,
and to be honest it was hard to give up
lies before trust, love between lust, thats us.
and we both know that it was hard lettin go,
even from afar i could see you can't stay a float.
you're my favorite joke and the punchline kills,
you know, the one about not knowin how true love feels.
if its dog eat dog i'll stick with kibbles and bits,
cuz i never really like the taste of straight up bitch.
your falling with no rescue now,
you could cry me river i hope your dumb ass drowns.


go on, move on, there's another one,
and another one,
and another one,
give me one reason i should stop breathin'
for this one, no not for this one.

go on, move on, there's another one,
and another one,
and another one,
give me one reason i should stop breathin'
for this one, no not for this one.


social butterfly pumpin up so high,
flappin gums and lungs, just to get by.
step up on a soapbox, megaphone grip,
heart locked to a chain, hangin from her neck.
that kind of bling can stay in videos,
on movie screens and fictional dreams,
not everything is always how it seems,
that's true about you, and that's true about me.


go on, move on, there's another one,
and another one,
and another one,
give me one reason i should stop breathin'
for this one, no not for this one.

go on, move on, there's another one,
and another one,
and another one,
give me one reason i should stop breathin'
for this one, no not for this one.

go on, move on, there's another one,
and another one,
and another one,
give me one reason i should stop breathin'
for this one, no not for this one.

(chorus repeats until it completely fades out)
