On a summer night
When you pulled me closer
Baby please don't cry isn't this what you had hoped for?
Sorry to say that we can't just go back
Just pretend like you were tryin' and leave it at that?
Wouldn't you hate to admit that you did this to yourself?

And you're throwing away happiness with both ends
Just blame it on miles but you knew all the while
Don't tell me that it's better off this way?
And you started to say the words you run to so quickly
Can you make me believe that I shouldn't leave?
These lights reveal your face so differently

So make promises that we both know you can't keep
And lead me to believe in your lies
(In Your Lies)
I'm calling you out on your only regret
More like regret is calling you
My tear in the headlights so cold and alone

And you're throwing away happiness with both ends
Just blame it on miles but you knew all the while
Don't tell me that it's better off this way?
And you started to say the words you run to so quickly
Can you make me believe that I shouldn't leave?
These lights reveal your face so differently

And she whispers in my ear
Promise me when your not here
Promise to never let me go

And you're throwing away happiness with both ends
Just blame it on miles but you knew all the while
Don't tell me that it's better off this way?
And you started to say the words you run to so quickly
Can you make me believe that I shouldn't leave?
These lights reveal your face so differently

On a summer night
As you pull me closer
Baby please don't cry isn't this what you had hoped for?
