Verse I

Inside
Of me
Was a heart
Of glass
Never
Knew I
Hurt
So bad

You were
Like me
I never knew
'Til the
One night
We broke
In two

PRE-CHORUS
Then our hearts fell on the ground
They heard a crying sound
That's when you turned to me
To see if I was dreamin'
Then our hearts fell on the ground... (on the ground)
REPEAT

CHORUS
But now I see
With EYES WIDE OPEN
I used to dream
When I was broken
You set me free
With my emotions
So now I feel
With EYES WIDE OPEN

Verse II

Shattered
Pieces—
They cut
So deep
I looked
Down
And
I watched
The bleed

You said
You loved me
And I believed
But actions
Speak louder
And you watched me leave

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS
REPEAT CHORUS

Coda
Yesterday, I used to dream
You were like a fantasy
Now, there's just reality
And you're not my boyfriend
... I used to dream
REPEAT

Ohhh... ohhh... ohhh... ohhh

SPOKEN WORD
I used to dream...
I used to...
I used to dream...
