When I stand
In a crowded room
I feel alone
Like nobody's there
And when you
Talk cold to me
I can see
Your breath in the air
It's taking
A toll on me
In the bathroom
Taking showers
So you don't see me cry
Baby
It's such a crime
I try
To feel confident
I'm bitter
Not making sense
I missed you
Till you almost took
My sanity
I'm starting
A new verse

Like poetry
Hiding behind
The words you speak
Changing the words
Of the story
You say
You don't love me
Then say
That you love me
I'm fighting
You're hiding
Behind the words
You're speaking
Changing the words
I'm lost in the verse
You say
You don't love me
Then say
That you love me
Why are you hiding?

When I give you
Gratitude
You act like you
Don't hear me speak
And when I tell you
What you do to me
You don't even hear
The truth
What are you
Trying to prove?
I stare out
The window for hours
Cause you
Won't listen to me
You won't even
Look in my eyes
I've tried
To feel confident
I'm bitter
You're not making sense
I missed you
Till you almost took
My sanity
I'm starting
A new verse

Like poetry
Hiding behind
The words you speak
Changing the words
Of the story
You say
You don't love me

Then say
That you love me
I'm fighting
You're hiding
Behind the words
You're speaking
Changing the words
I'm lost in the verse
You say
You don't love me
Then say
That you love me
Why are you hiding?

Don't believe
What you're saying
I read your face
And I'm blanking
Cause I don't know
What's in front
Of my eyes
I try
To feel confident
I've tried
To feel confident
I'm bitter
Not making sense
I missed you
Till you almost took
My sanity
Oh, oh, oh, o-oh
(Four times)
I'm starting
A new verse like

Like poetry
Hiding behind
The words you speak
Changing the words
Of the story
You say
You don't love me
Then say
That you love me
I'm fighting
You're like poetry
Hiding behind
The words you speak
Changing the words
Of the story
You say
You don't love me
Then say
That you love me
I'm fighting
You're like poetry
Hiding behind
The words you speak
Changing the words
Of the story
You say
You don't love me
Then say
That you love me
I'm fighting
You're hiding
Behind the words
You're speaking
Changing the words
I'm lost in the verse
You say
You don't love me
Then say
That you love me
Why are you hiding?
