Oh have some heart and hold it to your chest,
We weren't in love, we were too young.
We throw our words around as if they were not gold,
Well they are.

Oh maybe someday I will be something more,
Real with arms and legs so I can walk away and stay away forever and some more
Some more.

I'll stick around to watch this town fall down to it's knees,
You can pray the day that you hope is coming round real soon.
I will run and stay away in a place that I don't know well of,
You can chose a different song that you will soon love.

Well here are the reasons that hurt me the most.
Call off the search I'm coming home,
People lie once, but not on the third,
Not without reason, not for a girl.

The names will vary, the names they may change,
But the game, the game it stays the same, Oh love, we want the ones that we will grow to hate, to hate.

It's just so
Oh no, oh no. oh woah, oh no...
(Etc.)

Oh maybe someday I'll deserve something more,
A home in which I will turn to grow.
I plant the seeds so that we can become something more, something more

I'll stick around to watch this town fall down to it's knees,
You can pray the day that you hope is coming round real soon.
I will run and stay away in a place that I don't know well of,
You can chose a different song that you will soon love.

Oh here are the reasons that hurt me the most,
Call off the search she's coming home.
People lie once, but not on the third,
Not without reason, not for a girl.

    Yeah, so there are people called songwriters that never get credit for songs popular artists get. How is this any different? So she covered someone else's song, people do it all the time.

    Seriously dude this is you me at six's song... Like give them credit. She only did a cover. And now loads of people are gonna think she wrote it. How would you like it if everyone thought someone else wrote your song?

    It's still not her song though, she didn't write it, and the that's the point. It may be your opinion, but it's not her song.

    well kassiedear, in mine any many other peoples opinions this is mush better than You Me At Six's version and more popular. So it may as-well be her song
