I guess it was wishful to think
I was different from the rest
Now I'm red in the face
I don't think I'm impressed

Miss strong and outspoken
So easily broken

Now I kick myself
I should've know better
Get it together

You can't blame me

Are you listening?

Wrap your lines
Around another

While you sweet talk to yourself
I'd rather leave

You stitched a heart on your sleeve
But I see right through the seams

I knew the coward in you
Would play the lead

The nights you spent with me
And didn't want to leave
You stayed with me until I fell asleep

All the things I wish I said
Playing back inside my head

It just might be a long shot
You're marching with your eyes shut

Wrap your lines
Around another

While you sweet talk to yourself
I'd rather leave

You stitched a heart on your sleeve
But I see right through the seams

I knew the coward in you
Would play the lead

All the things I wish I said
Playing back inside my head

It just might be a long shot
You're marching with your eyes shut

Wrap your lines
Around another

While you sweet talk to yourself
I'd rather leave

You've stitched a heart on your sleeve
But I see right through the seams

I knew the coward in you
Would play the lead

    From the girls' point of view the song is about a girl who was with "that boy. " the one everyone wants, and he knows it. In the song, the girl realizes that "it might not be real" to him, and tells him to go play his games with someone else if it isn't. From the boys point of view it's nearly the same, except it is real to the boy and he doesn't know how to handle it, so he pretends like it is a game and leaves. / (^_^) / all the teen angst (^_^)

    I think this song is about a girl who went out with a guy but they split and he wants her back but she's saying no and thinking "better luck next time, try treating me right! "
