Verse One
When we first started
I thought we'd make it through
But now I realize
That I'm not right for you

Pre Chorus
A storybook romance
Is what I thought we could have had
We didn't take the chance
But I wanted us to last

Chorus
Cause I'm never gonna do what you want me to
And it's always gonna be that way
Lately it's been on my mind
I'm leaving it all behind
Cause you're never gonna say that you're happy baby
I'm never gonna say I'm sorry
Lately it's been on my mind
I'm leaving it all behind, yeah

Verse Two
And when I look back
I see we could not have been
And I'm okay with that
Cause now I'm starting again

Pre Chorus
A storybook romance
Is what I thought we could have had
We didn't take the chance
But I wanted us to last

Chorus
Cause I'm never gonna do what you want me to
And it's always gonna be that way
Lately it's been on my mind
I'm leaving it all behind
Cause you're never gonna say that you're happy baby
I'm never gonna say I'm sorry
Lately it's been on my mind
I'm leaving it all behind, yeah

Bridge
Well baby can't you see
That I'm happy I met you?
But I'm taking time for me
That's just what I've got to do

Chorus
Cause I'm never gonna do what you want me to
And it's always gonna be that way
Lately it's been on my mind
I'm leaving it all behind
Cause you're never gonna say that you're happy baby
I'm never gonna say I'm sorry
Lately it's been on my mind
I'm leaving it all behind

Chorus
Cause I'm never gonna do what you want me to
And it's always gonna be that way
Lately it's been on my mind
I'm leaving it all behind
Cause you're never gonna say that you're happy baby
I'm never gonna say I'm sorry
Lately it's been on my mind
I'm leaving it all behind, yeah
