I made you promises,
But I want them back.
I gave you everything,
But you stabbed me in the back.

I finally figured out
That I can live without
The pain I feel inside.
I've opened up my eyes,
Begun to realize I
Trusted way too many lies.

It's time to pick up the pieces now.
Am I falling down?
Am I drowning out?
Am I the only one who sees things this way?
Well, I guess it goes to show.

Put me on my swing.
'Cause I can see the whole world from here
And I feel so alive.
Put me on my swing.
'Cause I can see the whole world from here
And I feel so alive.
Put me on my swing.
'Cause I can see the whole world from here
And I feel so alive.
Put me on my swing.
'Cause I can see the whole world from here
And I feel so alive.

After all was said and done,
(Missing out on me.)
More was said than done.

Put me on my swing,
'Cause I can see the whole world from here
And I feel so alive.
Put me on my swing.
'Cause I can see the whole world from here
And I feel so alive.

Missing...you're missing out on me,
Out on me, out on me,
Out on me baby, out on me,
Out on me...

Put me on my swing,
'Cause I can see the whole world from here
And I feel so alive.
Put me on my swing,
'Cause I can see the whole world from here
And I feel so alive,

And I'm waiting for you there,
For you to care.
(Put me on my swing,)
I can see it in your eyes,
('Cause I can see the whole world from here)
And I'm running, but not giving up,
(And I feel so alive.)
Just giving in for now,
'Cause I can't pretend it's all okay.

Missing...
