There was this boy who came to town.
Was cooler than the boys in all my crazy dreams.
All the problems I thought I had all but disappeared.
And he would always,
Always think of me first.
And we were writing the history books and we were so in love.
And there was this girl, she used to hang out,
I never saw anything, anyone, no one so beautiful
And she would sit around,
And wait for the day to end.
And she would offer herself as if she had nowhere else to go.
And I didn't think nothing of it
And that's when my life went cold.
And then she was not sleeping in your bed,
And she was all over you.
And there she was sleeping in my bed.
And then there were all these issues,
And then there were all these issues.

This time I'm gonna get it right,
I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim.
This time I'm gonna get it right,
I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim.
This time I'm gonna get it right,
This time I'm gonna get it right.
This time I'm gonna get it right,
I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim.

And all the things we used to say and used to do together,
And I can't believe
That there were such good things between us,
And we threw them all away.
Just because this girl,
She thought that she had something to say.
And all the things I'm now left with are scarred upon my mind,
And I can't believe all these times I used to wait,
And I never used to go out and show myself,
Cos I got everything I need.
And you need to stop that now,
You used to stop me doing what I wanted,
And now I can't do it anymore,
Cos I discovered there's something about me
That everybody wants some more
That everybody wants some more.

This time I'm gonna get it right,
I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim.
This time I'm gonna get it right,
I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim.
This time I'm gonna get it right,
This time I'm gonna get it right.
This time I'm gonna get it right,
I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim.

And after all that's said and done,
I had to,
Pick myself up and find myself at number one.
Cos this isn't about you anymore,
This is all about me.
It wasn't your fault that I was living up in a tree.
I was waiting for things,
I was waiting for things to come to me.
We were never in love,
And we were never meant to be.
All the things that you said,
I don't hold you responsible.
I needed to get myself together,
And that's what've I gone and done,
And that's what I've gone and done,
And that's what I've gone and done.
And now I'm here right now,
And my life has just begun.
My life has just begun!

This time I'm gonna get it right,
I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim.
This time I'm gonna get it right,
I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim.
This time I'm gonna get it right,
This time I'm gonna get it right.
This time I'm gonna get it right,
I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim
