You say it's all in my head
And the things I think just don't make sense
So where you been then? Don't go all coy
Don't turn it round on me like it's my fault
See I can see that look in your eyes
The one that shoots me each and every time

You grace me with your cold shoulder
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her
You shower me with words made of knives
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her

These days when I see you
You make it look like I'm see-through
Do tell me why you waste our time
When your heart ain't admitting you're not satisfied
You know I know just how you feel
I'm starting to find myself feeling that way too

When you grace me with your cold shoulder
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her
You shower me with words made of knives
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her

Time and time again, I play the role of fool
(Just for you)
Even in the daylight when you're dreaming
(I see you)
Try to look for things I hear but our eyes never find
Though I do know how you play

You grace me with your cold shoulder
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her
You shower me with words made of knives
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her

You grace me with your cold shoulder
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her
You shower me with words made of knives
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her

    Do you honestly think i don't realize what is happening to us? Why don't you just stop wasting your time? You act like you can't stand me, and i see the way you look at her... So stop acting like you really care.

    Wow, person from october 14th, that's a little bit ignorant, wouldn't you say? Life isn't happy, get over it. And anyway, most love ends in heartache, so why shouldn't she sing about the hurt she felt, or in this case, about the guy who choosed to ignore completely?
    And by the way, getting super wasted, totally fun. Not.

    The time and time again part is random it doen't fit with the song... Overall really good... And for the person who posted on the 14th... She sings depressing songs cause her voice suits it
