So it’s a war of the words, I see
But two can play that game baby

Excuse me for chasing happiness
When it left my side months ago
I know you’re still standing by its shadow
Holding on to that one last hope, just let it go

And excuse me, once more, for being a little harsh
But your ongoing attacks on me aren’t doin’ the trick
Just like your nonchalant way of hiding your hurt
Going along pretending like this never even happened.

Don’t get me wrong
I wish you nothing but the best, love
I wish you nothing but better love from here.
But please, note your wrongs,
Instead of making this a spotlight show on me
How about you take some responsibility
Show a little honesty.

Honey drop the act like I drop the beat
Your act is getting old, trust me, I’ve had the front seat
How can you even say those nasty things you say
About someone you were just in love with yesterday?
(It doesn’t make any sense at all
Does it make any sense at all?)

How long did you really expect it to take
Before the lies you got yourself caught up in led to a mistake
And if you consider me that mistake then be my guest
But don’t forget who it was who got that heart pounding in your chest

Don’t get me wrong
I wish you nothing but the best, love
I wish you nothing but better love from here.
But please, note your wrongs,
Instead of making this a spotlight show on me
How about you take some responsibility
Show a little honesty.

Just for the record my motive here isn’t revenge
This is my side of the story and this is to defend
The honesty in how we were so desperately trying
To keep ourselves from becoming what we feared when we were crying
And honestly, we should’ve seen it coming for a while
The honesty that we were lacking from each and every smile
The fights that never stopped that seemed to echo the whole town
Till each echo sounded different, and I had myself turn around

And I listened to all the words that everyone had said
And all of them, were strikingly, of the same thread
It didn’t take much to convince my new ears
That I had to listen to the honesty that I now found so clear
