Don't thank me for what you got
I've given you love, I've given you too much thought
Don't blame me for sinking the ship
You're a hopeless liar and a hypocrite

Only you know, only you know
Only you know, only you know

Don't thank me for what you got
I've given you love, I've given you too much thought
Don't shame me for calling it quits
You're a hopeless sinner and an optimist

Only you know, only you know
Only you know, only you know

Don't hate me for what you got
I've given you drugs
I've given you too much thought
Don't blame me for flunking the test
I'd rather think that you were honest

Don't blame me 'cause you got caught
You've given me up, you've taking everything I've got
Those lies came straight from your mouth
I never dreamed that you would be a sellout

Only you know, only you know
Only you know, only you know

Don't use me as your last crutch
I've taken you in, I've trusted you way too much
Don't wear me around your wrist
You should've though it through before you blew it

Same day, same life
Different person
Your ghost
My pride
Perfect
'that you leave me alone'

Same day, same day
Same life, same life
Different person
Your ghost, your ghost
My pride, my pride
Perfect union

Don't hate me for what you got
I've given you love
I've given you too much thought
Don't shame me for sinking the ship
You're a hopeless liar and a hypocrite

Don't hate me for what you're not
I'm aiming your gun, I'm not enough a perfect shot
Don't waste me, on something stupid like this
I would rather die than take this bullet
(same day) I would rather die than take this bullet
(same day) I would rather die than take this bullet
(same day) I would rather die than take this bullet
I would rather die than take your bullet!!!!

Only you know (than take your bullet!!)
Only you know (different person)
(than take your bullet!!)
Only you know (than take your bullet!!)
Only you know (different person)
Only you know only you know (different person)
Only you know only you know (different person)
