All these answers
For the words that you omitted
You omit them still
Never thought I would find out
But we’re here now
I’m aching for this, aching for it

You said you’d never been with anyone else
But you lied
As you tried to say somehow that I was the one to blame
Is this the way you’ve found for saving yourself
If lies were wealth, you’d need help
Counting riches from your mouth’s piggy bank

I drove these streets to your front door
So could you please just help me out?
It’s sad to say but there’s always more
And you just stare like you can’t hear a sound

Hide the suspects (x4)

This is where you say it’s not what it looks like
He’s got his hands wrapped around your waist
Well I want this, do you want it?
And I hate this, but you flaunt it
It sounds absurd so I waited for my own eyes
To put a face on the person that built these lies
Did you want this, cause I want it
Could have fooled me, cause I bought it

You have been found out

I told myself it was the jealousy that caught my distrust
But I’m such a good pretender
I surrendered my doubts
Of all the liars number one is where you made your debut
But I’ll teach you the truth because I’ve figured you out

I drove these streets to your front door
So could you please just help me out
It’s sad to say but there’s always more
That brought you just stare like you can’t hear a sound

Hide the suspects (x4)
I’ve finally figured you out
I’ve finally figured you out

This is where you say it’s not what it looks like
He’s got his hands wrapped around your waist
Well I want this, do you want it?
And I hate this, but you flaunt it
It sounds absurd so I waited for my own eyes
To put a face on the person that built these lies
Did you want this, cause I want it
Could have fooled me, cause I bought it

Trying to forget and wishing we never met
I should have been careful
I thought I was unbreakable
But sometimes you find out that you cannot control your heart
Or regain the person that you were from the start.

Hide the suspects(x4)

This is where you say it’s not what it looks like
He’s got his hands wrapped around your waist
Well I want this, do you want it?
And I hate this, but you flaunt it
It sounds absurd so I waited for my own eyes
To put a face on the person that built these lies
Did you want this, cause I want it
Could have fooled me, cause I bought it.

    General CommentIts about his girlfriend, the chick who lead him on, who is obviously seeing another man, but at the same time he doesn't want to believe it is happening. And the main part of the song hes acknowledging that she's a cheater/liar, yet he still struggles with feelings for her and how it changed him. =)

    General Commentas everyone has said, about catching a girl cheating on him.
    love the line "I told myself it was the jealousy that caught my distrust
    But I'm such a good pretender, i surrendered my doubts." its like he knew for a long time it was going on, but he just refused to let himself believe it.

    I normally don't like it when they add studio effects to albums (like they do with the screams in this song) but i like how emery does it. Partially because its subtle, they do an excellent job with this song as usual. also love the piano in the background near the end. adds to the mood.
