(JAMES)
Take a seat
There's something I should tell you
I don't wanna scare you
It's hard for me
You deserve my honesty

I'm trying to be responsible
You need to understand
It's not the way I planned this
Not at all
Are you sitting comfortable?

This is gonna be difficult
It's not easy to say
I wouldn't want you to take it the wrong way

(MATT)
I liked you better before you knew me
You were the girl next door
But you're not anymore, it's freaky
You were Hannah Montana
But now you're licking things like Miley
You were cinematic
Now I made you a TV movie
It's to be, so amuse me
Because you were better before you knew me

(TOM)
I'm totally the one to blame
I have known for ages
I must be contagious
We're the same
And I'm the one that made you lame

Every time I look at you
I see my reflection
Covering perfection
It is such a bummed out view
Seeing what you turned into

This is gonna be difficult
But it has to be said
Everyone wants the old you back instead

(MATT)
I liked you better before you knew me
You were High Defintion
Now you're barely 720
You were a health fanatic
Now you're a Ben and Jerry's junkie
You were all about positions
Now you're stuck in missionary
But Mary, so amuse me
I liked you better before you knew me

(DANNY)
It's not too late for you
To move on to someone new
Stop doing things that I would do, woah
It turns out my ignorance
Sucks as an influence
So run, baby while you've got the chance

(MATT)
You were better before you knew me
You were S Club 7
Now you look like a Slipknot groupie
We were Brangelina
Now we're lookin' more like Speidi (like Speidi)
You were a Peace Corps hippy
And you're playin' Call of Duty nightly
And hungry for newbies
I liked you better before you knew me

You were the girl next door
But you're not anymore, it's freaky
You were high definition
Now you're barely 720
You were "Oops I did it-"
But now you're like a shaven Britney
So leave me, I'm sorry
I liked you better before you knew me
