Well this all set in motion
How could you be so cold?
Now you want the attention
The tables turned, reversed the roles
Oh now you can play the victim
Say "I'm fucked in the head"
Oh my hearts a disillusion
Laid in my melancholy bed, yeah

I want to tell you girl that I thought you were the one
But, you're like staring down the sun
And I'll lose sight before I fade away

Fell asleep inside the ocean
I awoke in the sand
Ought to build you up a castle
Proclaimed this is our Promised Land
But we ignored the crashing
Of the waves against the door
'Cause love, it ain't no treaty
No baby, this love is war

I want to tell you girl that I thought you were the one
But, you're like staring down the sun
And I'll lose sight before I fade away

I want to tell you now before it's all said and done
You think the worst is yet to come
Plan your escape and make your get away (fade, fade, fade)
Oh you nailed my shadow down
On the crooked streets laid in this town
We counted brick by brick 'til there was nothing left to count
And I wait outside your window
Collecting rain into a jar
Just let me warn, I've built this storm
Knowing well it'd piss you off
How could you be so cold?

I want to tell you girl that I thought you were the one
But, you're like staring down the sun
And I'll lose sight before I fade away
I want to tell you now before it's all said and done
You think the worst is yet to come
Plan your escape and make your get away
'Cause I'll lose sight before I fade away
Yeah, I'll lose sight before I fade away
