Wake up, you're gettin' high on your own supply
Oh, baby, you're still alive when you could've died, oh
The world is not around because of you
You know I'm not around because of you

You've got a mouthful of diamonds
And a pocketful of secrets
I know you're never telling anyone
Because the patterns they control your mind
Those patterns take away my time
Hello, goodbye

Wasted, you tell the truth when you could've lied
And troubles are on the rise cuz you're in disguise, oh
And if it isn't me then pack your bags and leave
I wish I could believe those devils won't take you back
Out to the salty sea

You've got a mouthful of diamonds
And a pocketful of secrets
I know you're never telling anyone
Because the patterns they control your mind
Those patterns take away my time
Hello, goodbye

I wish I could believe...

    I think it's about someone who is in love with an addict or a high profile person who has gotten so wrapped up in the drugs or fame that they have lost who they truly are which makes the narrator wish things were different and decides to leave

    Sounds like someone who is in love with a high profile drug dealer that leads a second life and can't quit what they do and is deeply controlled by the drugs, and other person uses too but not enough to lose themselves so they leave. Hello, goodbye.

    Hopeless feelings about a loved one who is an addict and doesn't want help & needing to get away but wishing it could be different
