quiet as he breathes, shaking in his voice he grew his hair real long
and she has seen its length, she has watched it grow from when it was short

but we all lie, yeah thats what we're known to do
we're all humans in this game, you prove and prove it through.
and we all lie, yeah we try and hide the truth.
when she climbs on top of you, you feel like you used to, feel like you used to.

and hold her while she fakes, footprints on your heart where her head should lay.
and crawl into your bed, back into your arms, you're falling back in love.

but we all lie, yeah that's what we're known to do.
we're all humans in this game, you prove and prove it through.
and we all lie, yeah we try and hide the truth.
when she climbs on top of you, you feel like you used to, feel like you used to.

    General CommentAfter the final chorus, there is a verse that sounds like the following:

    'This old love
    Is used, is used
    This old love is used
    This old love
    Is used, is used
    This old love is used'


    Love her music, and this song is one of my favourites. I love the build up at the end of the final chorus that leads into the verse. She just sounds so passionate! When I saw her live, she said this song was about a friend of hers that was in an unhealthy relationship.
