Close your eyes and make believe this is where you want to be
Forgetting all the memories, try to forget love cause love's forgotten me
Well hey, hey baby, it's never too late pretty soon you won't remember a thing
And I'll be distant, as stars reminiscing
Your heart's been wasted on me

Ohhhhh ohh ah oh oh oh oh

You've never been so used as I'm using you, abusing you
My little decoy
Don't look so blue, you should've seen right through
I'm using you, my little decoy
My little decoy

Live your life inside a dream
Time is changing everything
Forgetting all the memories
And I'm forced into you just cause you're into me
Well hey, hey baby, it's never too late
When I'm gone you won't remember a thing
But I can't stay and you know I won't wait
I was gone from the very first day

Ohhhhh ohh ah oh oh oh oh

You've never been so used as I'm using you, abusing you
My little decoy
Don't look so blue, you should've seen right through
I'm using you, my little decoy

I'm not sorry at all
Oh, no (Not sorry, oh, not sorry)no
I won't be sorry at all
Oh, no (Not sorry, oh, not sorry)no
I'd do it over again

Don't look so blue, my little decoy
You should've seen right through, my little decoy
You've never been so used, my little decoy
As I'm using you, my little decoy

    First off, we all need to remember that josh does a lot of the writing for paramore. So this song could be about a girl being a decoy.
    Secondly, I think its about 2 people in a relationship where one of them likes the other one a lot more and will do anything to please them. The one that's not really into sees what they can gain from it and continues the relationship for its benefits and knows that it'll be easy for them to just up and leave when they are ready.

    The poor guy here likes this girl, but she clearly doesn't feel the same way. Yet she keeps him hoping that she does, for whatever reason it may be; the attention, to get back at someone or maybe for reasons she don't even know herself.
    The situation here seems they are sorta seeing each other rather than dating, where the guy is doing all he can for the girl cos he likes her, and he just wants her to like him back. She dosnt quite lead him on, yet she doesn't let him go either.
    The guy beleives things are going somewhere but the girl is never interested,. "your hearts been wasted on me". To her this is just nothing, taking waht she can get along the way.

    I was reading an angsty teen fic while listening to this and somehow got it in my head that she (the singer) and some guy were together, but only for appearances sake. They may be in high school, where it's sink or swim in the social game.
    "Close your eyes and make believe this is where you want to be" implies that they don't actually have real, deep feelings for each other.
    "Pretty soon you won't remember a thing And I'll be distant, as stars reminiscing Your heart's been wasted on me" She doesn't really like him, and while he might've entertained light feelings for her, he will forget her quickly, like most high school romances that seem to come and go.
    "And I'm forced into you just cause you're into me" like I said, she's with him because maybe he said a passing remark about how he thought she was cool or hot. But she was "gone from the very first day"-she never cared. She only used him.
    "I won't be sorry at all I'd do it over again" She doesn't mind toying with his brief attentions because she is taking what she can get and maybe making the most of his connections, his friends, his social status.
    But, like I said, I came up with this in a fit of teenage angst. Might be too dramatic for you, I think it could be legit.
