I read back over things that I wrote three years ago
And I'm ten years older time moves fast and time moves slow
Before you told me that i'd fucked up worse than none before
You whispered that I was a better person that you
I disagreed then
Don't anymore
And what's the use?
I know that you're just sore to lose
'Cause I was never half as bad as you were bad to me
Being real not being mean
You tried to twist it
I tried to fix it more than you could ever know
To do things right to be your friend and make it right
To find a thread that I could start to sew
You're old enough to know the difference between being real and being mean

    Lyric CorrectionHoly caps lock, Batman! Also, the line breaks are all over the place. Try this:


    I read back over
    Things that I wrote three years ago
    And I'm ten years older
    Time moves fast and time moves slow

    Before you told me
    That I'd fucked up worse than none before
    You whispered that I was a better person than you
    (I) disagreed then*
    Don't anymore

    And whats the use?
    I know that you're just sore to lose
    'cause I was never half as bad as you were bad to me
    Being real, not being mean

    You tried to twist it
    I tried to fix it more than you could ever know
    To do things right and be your friend and make it right
    To find a thread that I could start to sew

    And whats the use?
    I know that you're just sore to lose
    'cause I was never half as bad as you were bad to me
    Being real, not being mean

    You're old enough to know the difference between
    Being real and being mean
    Being real, not being mean


    * - 'I' is present in the Derailer version, not the s/t.
