I had an experience to know what's good for me
And I don't feel it in your ways
You're smiling all the time
Are you smiling in your eyes?
All I see is just a face fade away

I had an experience to know what's good for me
And I don't feel it in your eyes
You know I've heard it enough times
To know when I'm being lied to
So move away I'm wanting better things

Can't you see you throw away your life
(You throw away your life no owe to yourself yeah)
It's more that I can't hear your lies

You don't know what you think that you know
What you know isn't good enough
Keep on falling, you move out of sight
It's alright I'll just walk on by

Do you see the heart of it now that I set you free?
I only do it cos I can
You're certainly mistaken if your thinking that I'm making
Simple little stories just to share

Can't you see you throw away your life
(Can't you see you throw away your life no owe to yourself yah)
It's more that I can't stand to hear your lies

You don't know what you think that you know
What you know isn't good enough
Keep on falling, you move out of sight
It's alright I'll just walk on by
But if you are looking for the good take a look at yourself
Cos yourself gonna make a change
You don't know what you think that you know
What you know ain't the good things yeah.

It ain't easy, took a little while for me
Hurting feelings had to mend
You know I felt it enough times to know when I'm being lied to
So move away I'm wanting better things

You don't know what you think that you know
What you know isn't good enough
Keep on falling, you move out of sight
It's alright, I'll just walk on by
But if you are looking for the good take a look at yourself
Cos yourself gonna make a change
You don't know what you think that you know
What you know ain't the good things yeah

Don't throw away your life looking for the good things
Don't throw away your life looking for the good things
