[Verse:]
She spins a tale of love so bittersweet that it stains my lips
I wonder how you got so lonely with a grace so poisonous
But she melts away in the light
I could never stay away,
But I could sure f*****g try

I don't deserve this
I'm lost looking for purpose
No, I'm not worthless
I'm just looking for answers
You're not the answer

[Chorus:]
This is not
What I want
I just keep running away from the pain
I swear, I swear, I'll never make it out of here
The answer stays the same

[Verse 2:]
She's misery, but when she leaves I find I'm wondering
How many times have I tried?
Why can't I just get this right?
She slips away from me again
Force me away, force me to hide my heart
When I'd give anything to lie with you

[Chorus:]
This is not
What I want
I just keep running away from the pain
I swear, I swear, I'll never make it out of here
The answer stays the same.

[Verse 3:]
There's something growing inside me
My hearts not yours to break
I've let you go.
I found the answer was hiding inside me
Don't f*****g judge me
I command respect

Who would've thought my life could fall right in front of me?
I watched you burn out of reality
You found me trivial
I found you a tragedy
The night you burned I found what's left of me
This is what's left of me

[Chorus:]
What I want
I just keep running away from the pain
I swear, I swear, I'll never make it out of here
The answer stays the same.

I swear, I swear I'm just looking for answers, you're not the answer.
I swear, I swear I got the answer, you're not the answer.

It's not something I could wish upon myself.
