Where did we go so wrong
That we couldn't see that we lost control over everything?
It's personal she gets involved
We've got these faces they're painted
So you can't ever sell

Trophy eyes
You've now been mine for longer than I'd like
You shine so bright behind those lies
And I need you more this time

And I am on my own
But not for long
I keep my friends so close
And you even closer
So wrong to say
That I feel this way
But I'm a man of my word
And my words will never change

Trophy eyes
You've now been mine for longer than I'd like
You shine so bright behind those lies
And I need you more this time

Trophy eyes
You've now been mine for longer than I'd like
You shine so bright behind those lies
And I need you more this time
(This is what we'll say)

    I think 'trophy eyes' could mean that the girl's in the relationship for the money and therefore the whole relationship is a lie..

    I think this song is about lying to your boyfriend/girlfriend about things and the lies just keep going on until you can't stop and you get caught in your lies.

    Where did we go so wrong
    That we couldn't see that we lost control over everything?
    (how did this relationship go bad that fast)
    It's personal she gets involved
    (it's my problem and she gets involved)
    We've got these faces they're painted
    (we have masks on? Or we won't give away any emotions)
    So you can't ever sell

    Trophy eyes
    You've now been mine for longer than I'd like
    (this mask has been mine for longer than I intended it to be/these lies have kept going for longer than id like)
    You shine so bright behind those lies
    (you tell great lies/their very believable) 
    And I need you more this time
    (I need more of you/your lies)

    And I am on my own
    But not for long
    (self explanatory)
    I keep my friends so close
    And you even closer
    (I keep you closer like the quote: "keep your friends close and your enemies closer". The girl can be his enemy?)
    So wrong to say
    That I feel this way
    (it's bad that I feel this way)
    But I'm a man of my word
    And my words will never change
    (I say what I mean, and I keep my promises, unlike yours)

    Trophy eyes
    You've now been mine for longer than I'd like
    You shine so bright behind those lies
    And I need you more this time
    [same]

    Trophy eyes
    You've now been mine for longer than I'd like
    You shine so bright behind those lies
    And I need you more this time
