Just a few words to clear my head of thoughts of you
Too slow to learn from all the signals that you sent me
Big man, bigger head, no one else had an entry pass
The time I spent to tell you stories no one knew
I think I know now your surprise I’d share this with you
You see, I didn’t plan to leave you back when my life began

What was it then?
A transitive phase filled up with waste?
Is that it?
I’ve got the lies
Pages and sheets which reek of love
Is that something you recall?

So I trace my mistake to the source
Like a fool, I took your kind words for truth
And went around like that for years
And I bragged of a thing not my own
Now I know, but I backpedal too late
And in the crash I lost my face that I once had
Now it’s gone, what’s left is raw

You call me up to tell me of your pleasant day
I bite my lips to hear the shallow shit you say
Stubborn to the end, I believed that we could be friends
Think I forgot the way you talk about your exes?
I’d rather die an awful death than join your suitors
My pride, locked inside, it isn’t much but it gets me by

Look in your eyes
I’d never have guessed they once held life
Enchanting
I’m off again
Why can’t you be like I want?
Like you said you were then

So I trace my mistake to the source
Like a fool, I took your kind words for truth
And went around like that for years
And I bragged of a life not my own
Now I know, but I backpedal too late
And in the crash I tore my face off
So I looked at it, limp and bleeding there
It made me wonder how you stayed with me so long
