I thought it was curtains for us
All seemed so certain
You could say that the words are my version
The things are the reason you're hurtin'
I thought it was curtains for us
All seemed so certain
And I know that the reason I lied was a crime and it's kinda disturbin'

And I'm happy to admit that I lied
And I'll admit that I ruined your life
You can never admit if you tried
And you're so wrong
And you're so wrong
And I'm happy to admit that I lied
And I'll admit that I ruined your life
You can never admit if you tried
And you're so wrong


And til' you stop lying to yourself
I'll never stop lying to you
And until I start crying to myself
I'll never cry in front of you
I'll find the tallest giants
And break the rules of science
But I'll never stop lying to you
And I've never said a word so true

It used to be a case of trying to impress her
I pestered her daily
This lady arrested? my heart and I highly respected her
Take a lie detector but I'd probably pass the test
And I started this, not defending it
But you're asking me questions
Creating the tension, the tension
I miss all the tenderness
It's the truth but the truth isn't ending this

And I'm happy to admit that I lied
And I'll admit that I ruined your life
You can never admit if you tried
And you're so wrong
And you're so wrong
And I'm happy to admit that I lied
And I'll admit that I ruined your life
You can never admit if you tried
And you're so wrong

And til' you stop lying to yourself
I'll never stop lying to you
And until I start crying to myself
I'll never cry in front of you
I'll find the tallest giants
And break the rules of science
But I'll never stop lying to you
And I've never said a word so true


Our love was built on glass from day
We both were too afraid to say
Our love was built on glass from day
Too afraid to say

And til' you stop lying to yourself
I'll never stop lying to you
And until I start crying to myself
I'll never cry in front of you
I'll find the tallest giants
And break the rules of science
But I'll never stop lyin to u
And I've never said a word so true

    It's about a failed relationship in which one person has realised what has happened and admitting their faults in what happened when the relationship fell apart. Whereas the other person is in total denial that they ever did anything wrong and the problems were all to do with the other person.

    This song is about a relationship online. The person singing it's a guy, he's older, he's thinking these words to the girl, who's younger, she's a teen looking for love and he's lying that he loves her - 'and I know that the reason I lied was a crime and it's kinda disturbing'. When she starts to realize this is wrong, her life starts to be ruined, but she can't get out, she talks to him more and more, he starts infiltrating every thought she has, distracting her from her friends, her school, her family - 'i'll admit that I ruined your life'. Still she can't convince herself he's lying, even if she wanted to which she probably doesn't - 'You can never admit if you tried and you're so wrong'. He laughs at her gullibility. Her parents and friends find out and tell her she has to give him up, he's dangerous, and she tells him goodbye, and her parents cut contact - 'i thought it was curtains for us all seemed so certain'. But she can't stay away, even if she knows deep down he's bad, and after a few weeks her parents don't pay so much attention so she comes back, and so he keeps lying as long as he can, as long as she keeps coming back, as long as she keeps telling herself he's not lying - 'and til you stop lying to yourself I'll never stop lying to you'. But she's just addicted now, she can't stop but she knew deep down even from the beginning that it would never work "- 'Our love was built on glass'. And it's not even real love, he doesn't want the best for her, he doesn't even care about her at all, and he knows it and he's fine with it, nobody can ever find him, this is just his play "- 'and I'm happy to admit that I lied'.
