Give me your black lungs
And your blue eyes
And we'll trade them in for a new disguise
Give me your best bet
And your worst lie
And we'll fill them in with a straighter line
You could be everything I wanted
If you just gave up on holding back
And I’ve never lost so many words
From kissing just one girl
You’ve got potential

Wait for it
Wait for nights that compliment you
Ignore the girls that just resent you
It’s easier to pretend you don’t care at all
Now wait for it
Wait for boys that overwhelm you
And tell them that you’re not that type of girl
And you would rather sit and talk about your goals

You give me black lungs
And your blue eyes
And we'll trade them in for a new disguise
Give me your best bet
And your worst lie
And we'll fill them in with a straighter line
You could be everything I wanted
If you just gave up on holding back
'Cause I never lost so many words
From kissing just one girl
You’ve got potential

Wait for it
Wait for nights that decimate you
Wake up and then pray for saving
Hope has never seemed so far away from you
Now wait for it
Wait for years to pass you by
You’re looking back at all the times
You wish you hadn’t compromised at all

Well I tried
Well I tried
Well I tried to make you see
That you lost reality somewhere
I tried

Give me your black lungs
And your blue eyes
And we'll trade them in for a new disguise
Give me your best bet
And your worst lie
And we'll fill them in with a straighter line
You could be everything I wanted
If you just gave up on holding back
And I’ve never lost so many words
From kissing just one girl
You’ve got potential
