Did you ever feel like you wanna be
Someone else for just one day,
Did you ever feel like you wanna
See through another pair of lies,
Did you ever think I'm a wannabe with
Anyone else just one day,
Did you ever you really think of me when i walked away?

You look, you don't sound apologetic,
You smoke your subjects at my eyes, like you think,
You know where you think you'll find, you think you'll figure me out tonight,
But you'll never know what i won't share,
Cause I don't care and I don't care,
You think you'll figure me out tonight,
But I don't care,

And I wonder, if I'm just built this way,
Cause every man that I know, makes me feel like'I'm too plain'
When it's over and my selfish ways,
Go back to start again, go back to start again.

Did you ever feel like you should have said
Something smarter at that time,
Did you ever feel like you should have kept
In all to yourself,
Did you ever think it might be your fault
And never promise anymore,
Did you ever think it might not be me
Now it was always me?

You look, you don't sound apologetic,
You smoke your subjects at my eyes, like you think,
You know where you think you'll find, you think you'll figure me out tonight,
But you'll never know what i won't share,
Cause I don't care and I don't care,
You think you'll figure me out tonight,
But I don't care,

And I wonder, if I'm just built this way
Cause every man that I know, makes me feel like'I'm too plain'
When it's over and my selfish ways
Go back to start again

And I wonder, if I'm just built this way
Cause every man that I know, makes me feel like'I'm too plain'
When it's over and my selfish ways
Go back to start again, go back to start again

You look, you don't sound apologetic,
You smoke your subjects at my eyes, like you think,
You know where you think you'll find, you think you'll figure me out tonight,
But you'll never know what i won't share,
Cause I don't care and I don't care,
You think you'll figure me out tonight,
But I don't care,

And I wonder, if I'm just built this way
cause every man that I know, makes me feel like'I'm too plain'
When it's over and my selfish ways
Go back to start again,

And I wonder, if I'm just built this way
cause every man that I know, makes me feel like'I'm too plain'
When it's over and my selfish ways
Go back to start again, go back to start again

Go back to start again.

    General CommentI like this song a lot, but these lyrics are wrong:

    'See through another pair of lies' = 'See through another pair of eyes'

    'Did you ever think I'm a wannabe with anyone else for just one day' = 'Did you ever think I might wanna be with anyone else for just one day'

    'You look, you don't sound apologetic, you smoke your subjects at my eyes like you think' = 'The look the dunks and the bottle of Jack, the smokes the slouch and my eyes back'

    'You know where you think you'll find' = 'You think you know what you think you'll find'

    'I'm too plain' = 'I'm to blame'

    'When it's over and my selfish ways' = 'When it's over me and my selfish ways'

    'Now it was always me' = 'No, it was always me'
