When I pretend, everything is what I want it be,
I look exactly like what you had always wanted to see
When I pretend, I can't forget about the criminal I am
Stealing second after second just cause I know I can, but
I can't pretend this is they way it will stay, I'm just
(Trying to bend the truth)
I can't pretend I'm who you want me to be so I'm
(Lying my way from)

You
(No, no turning back now)
I wanna be pushed aside so let me go
(No, no turning back now)
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
(No turning back now)
Anywhere on my own, cause I can say
(No, no turning back now)
The very worst past of you
Is me

I remember what they taught to me,
Remember condescending talk of who I ought to be
Remember listening to all of that and this again
So I pretend up a person who was fitting it
And now you think this person really is me and I'm
(Trying to bend the truth)
But, the more I push the more I'm pulling away cause I'm
(Lying my way from)

You
(No, no turning back now)
I wanna be pushed aside so let me go
(No, no turning back now)
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
(No turning back now)
Anywhere on my own, cause I can say
(No, no turning back now)
The very worst part of you, the very worst part of you
Is me

This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would have you running from me
Like this!
This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would have you running from me
Like this!
This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would have you running from me
Like this!
This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would have you running from me
Like this!

You
(No turning back now)
I wanna be pushed aside so let me go
(No, no turning back now)
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
(No turning back now)
Anywhere on my own, cause I can say
(No, no turning back now)
The very worst part of you, the very worst part of you

Is me
