I've seen you bite your nails
In guilty thought, thought you couldn't care less
'Til I saw those paws
I'd say you took a bite for every lie you told
You'd of run out of fingers & start on your toes

(Chorus)
Don't think you're onto something good right now
So lets go back to the starting place
& I believe in futures, but I can't afford to wait
You've been doing it the wrong way
& someday you'll find something that makes you feel okay
Until then you make your own way

You're the type of girl who puts on cyanide perfume
Then asks for kisses on the neck from every boy in the room
So tell me now how you find yourself
At the bottom of a bottle in a bar
& how your reflection reacts to your new scars

(Chorus)
I don't think you're onto something good right now (x2)
So lets go back to the starting place
& I believe in futures, but I can't afford to wait
You've been doing it the wrong way
& someday you'll find something that makes you feel okay
Until then you make your own way

All's well that ends well
I'm finished with this game
There's got to be a better way then learning from your mistakes
A small step for man now with you out of the way
But now it's up to me to change
Making so tomorrow starts today

& I believe in futures, but I can't afford to wait
You've been doing it the wrong way
& someday you'll find something that makes you feel okay
Until then you make your own way
