Is this all a game?
I hate that you see me this way.
I am followed, I am lost.
Where I go, I'll never know.

Was it a mistake?
Too many nights end up this way.
I won't let it give me hope
You don't like to sleep alone.

You trade a taste like currency,
So blinded by,
Lie here awake at night.

and I knew the cost,
and I'll have no remorse.
and just like before,
I'll move on.

Cause it takes a while to stop waiting up,
To get over the need
Your loss, wasting time with you.
Well I'll take a life for you,
To spend my life with you
and in the end,
you always leave.

It was my mistake,
To let in the pouring rain.
The window never seems to close,
I never seem to get away.

Always the same,
Proud of my distant memories
With the coming drought
I will have to learn.

And on this road,
And in this place,
I promised I would never play it safe.

And now you're gone,
It feels so wrong.
Just like before,
I'll move on.

Cause it takes a while to stop waiting up,
To get over the need
Your loss, wasting time with you.
Well I'll take a life for you,
To spend my life with you,
And in the end you'll...

Emotions gone,
I swear that I've moved on,
Take me all this way,
and tonight you can stay.

Cause I know what it feels like,
and you've got me so cold on the inside.
I won't give away like this tonight.
This away...
and I
I will move on.

and I will move on.
I will move on.
I will move on.

Cause it takes a while to stop waiting up
To get over the need
Your loss, wasting time with you.
Well I'll take a life for you
To spend my life with you,
And in the end you always leave.

    My InterpretationThe girl is using him, when she doesnt want to be alone or when she wants sex but she doesn't want him the way he wants her. He loves her and she's Just messing with him.

    General Commentthis song is amazing!! to me what Jonny Craig is tryna get across is
    this guy/girl would do anything to keep their significant other forever but at the end of the day he/she would be losing time because the other person would throw it all away.
    & after he/she goes through the phase of waiting for the other they're like FUCK THIS ! I'M MOVING ON

    my favorite line
    "it was my mistake to let in the pouring rain, the window never seems to closed. I never seem to get away"
