When I pretend, everything is what I want it to be
I looked exactly like what you 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 that this is the way, it'll stay, I'm just
(Trying to fend 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 see
(No, no turning back now)
The very worst part 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 pretended up a person who was fitting in

And now you think this person, really is me and I'm
(Trying to fend the truth)
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 see
(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 see
(No, no turning back now)
The very worst part of you, the very worst part of you is me
