Yesterday I made you cry, it didn't even phase me when your tears rolled down. I was so convinced that I was right, that you never even tried to bring me round.

And these rules, are getting tangled in my body, these rules it's gonna hurt when you pull them out...

Look at what you made do, I was only tryin to save the world, but I forgot about asking you.
But look at what you made me say, I'm using crosswords on the radio, telling you to change your ways.
Look at what I've become, thought that I was everything you dreamed of, but you were dreamin of getting out, and now I can't get my ass off the couch.

Nicotine and alcohol, anything to fill the hole, cos it's all too much. There's nothing I can talk about, of course I'm gonna shut you out. I can hardly blame you cos you got me stuck yeah yeah.

But these rules, are getting tangled in my body, these rules, it's gonna hurt when you pull them out.

Look at what you made me do, I was just about to save the world when I forgot about asking you. Look at what what you made me say, I'm using crosswords on the radio, telling you to change your way.
Look at what I've become thought I was everything you dreamed of, but you were dreamin of getting out, and now I can't get my ass off the couch

Because of you...

Come angel fly away, angel leave today, but you never go, how these rules, got tangled in our body, these rules, it's gonna hurt when you pull them out

But look at what you made me do, I was just about to save the world when I forgot about asking you. Look at what what you made me say, I'm using crosswords on the radio, telling you to change your ways.
Look at what I've become thought I was everything you dreamed of, but you were dreamin of getting out, and now I can't get my ass off the couch

Because of you
