I’m not who I said I wanted to be anymore
I’m the kind I detest, the kind I abhor
And there don’t seem a way I can walk through that door
Without leaving behind what’s within

Well I’ve never been much for strung-out goodbyes
Let’s just get it done and forget all the little lies
About how we’ll always be friends
Though you know you’ll despise me when it’s over
Is it over

Cause I don’t want to face what’s been staring me down
And I don’t want to give up what I’ve been holding out for
But all of these days, and all of these nights
They only prove I’ve been taking my time
To fight what’s inevitable

Well, who’s to say this is not how it’s meant to be
And who’s going to say they know better than chemistry
You can tell me I’m wrong, but I’ll say I don’t feel it in me
But you know that I do
I do


Well maybe the Truth isn’t dependent on me
It won’t bend to lend a hand of sympathy
It won’t break or be shaken to make it easier on me
To keep living a lie
I’ve been living a lie
