You think it's funny
You got every single of the guys
Bendin' backwards,
Thinking somehow they'll collect on the prize

But I know that you know
That isn't happening
And I know that you know
It's just a part of the game

Just so you know
I can see right through your facade
I learned the hard way
But trust me, girl, I learned enough

Until that day when you outta luck and all alone
I promise I'll be there to stay I told you so

And I know
You're a closet romantic
But you love all the attention
So please
Just give it up
You're not fooling anyone

(I sing a melody for memories, remind me of you
You said you liked me, but I knew what you were trying to do
But I still fell for every little thing you said
Sometimes I wished that you'd just shut me down instead)

Shut me down, don't let me down
(And I know
You're a closet romantic
But you love all the attention
So please
Just give it up
You're not fooling anyone)

You're the pyramid scheme of infatuation
Get love quick, just follow these easy steps
I've got a real simple formula for fallin' in love
But in time, I'll be another thing disposed of

And your style, with the guys becomes strategic
Enough to make someone who found out real sick
Like that time I overheard you with your girlfriends
"Oh my God, you won't believe what I just told him"

Shut me down, just shut it down, just shut me down
(And I know
You're a closet romantic
But you love all the attention
So please
Just give it up
You're not fooling anyone)

I sing a melody for memories, remind me of you
You said you liked me, but I knew what you were trying to do
But I still fell for every little thing you said
Sometimes I wished that you'd just shut me down instead
(Shut me, shut me, shut me...)

The only thing that I don't get
Is how you can do all of this
And just forget
Every broken heart
And loss of self esteem
The misplaced dreams
And the abandoning that you made
Then you take it all away

And I know
You're a closet romantic
But you love all the attention
So please
Just give it up
You're not fooling anyone
