It can't be more obvious
She's in pain
Won't even let me in
From the rain

All the windows are locked again
She's afraid
Of everything that I have to say
To her face.

So try to look in my eyes
And tell me you're not surprised
Cause nothing is changing
Everyone has to lie sometimes
Do you know what it's like to make up your mind
Don't be alarmed when sinners sin
While the world is spinning

It can't be more obvious
I'm in pain
She won't even let me in
From the rain

All the pictures in the frames are cracked
Cos she's afraid
Of everything they're gonna say
Behind her back

So try to look in my eyes
And tell me you're not surprised Oh no
Cause nothing is changing
Everyone has to lie sometimes
Do you know what it's like to make up your mind
Don't be alarmed when sinners sin
While the world is spinning

So try to look in my eyes
And tell me you're not surprised Oh no
Cause nothing is changing
Everyone has to lie sometimes
Do you know what it's like to make up your mind
Don't be alarmed when sinners sin
While the world is spinning

So look in my eyes
And tell me you're not surprised
Cause nothing is changing
Everyone has to lie sometimes
Do you know what it's like to make up your mind
Don't be alarmed when sinners sin

Don't be alarmed when winners win
While the world is spinning

    This song is great i think its about a girl who is kinda insecure and scared of what the world thinks about her and nick plays like the guy who tries to build her self esteem in a way but hes sad that she wont listen to his message which is "sinners are gonna sin anyway, people are going to be wicked anyway but you cant let them get u worked up because wicked people are gonna do what they want to anyway"

    But then again it could be about a girl who did nick wrong and lied on him and now hes trying to confront her about it but also giving off a message saying dont get surprised when a sinner sins... Cuz thats what they do.
