Burn like a cigarette
All inside my head
Reminding me not to forget
Words,words I'd never say
Things along the way
Their telling me that I'm the best

'Cause your face it doesn't look like it did
You give away everything now that you've hid
You, you want to be only
So you opened up your arms and took me in
And this our last goodbye
And this is a perfect lie
Told by someone that I used to know back then

Help, help is on the way
That's what they all say
It's a thing that they don't know
'Cause I, I know everything
And maybe it's just a ring
But that won't make me let it go

Look at your face it doesn't look like it did
You give away everything now that your here
You, you want to be only
To never get lonely
So you opened up your arms and let me in
And this our last goodbye
And this is a perfect lie
Told by someone that I used to know back then

Look at your face doesn't look like it did
You hide your love
But your not willing now to give,willing now to give
You, you want to be only
To never get lonely
So you opened up your arms and let me in
And this our last goodbye
And this is a perfect lie
Told by someone that I used to know back then

And this our last goodbye
And this is the final lie
That i never have to hear that voice again
