about

I'm not usually this bitter. I promise.

lyrics

"Nothing" is a hyperbolic word.
But this hyperbole is absurd.
To say that "nothing's happening,"
Well I'm still grappling
with what's unraveling.
And you have always looked me in the eyes
When you spoon fed me those lies,
You took advantage of
the way I always loved
and put my faith in something good
I misunderstood.

I've tried to wrap my head around your ways,
Guess that's the reason why I stayed
Feel like I tolerated feeling obligated,
Now I just feel baited.
You think it's easy to just disengage,
But you can't just walk off this stage
And say "the scene is done,
so hey, now you're the one
I wanted all along, you see."
Well now I see.

Your eyes have hidden lies,
But somehow that comes as no surprise.
I wasn't there when you fantasized.
Two wrongs don't make a right,
But somehow I still feel justified,
You weren't the one who was victimized.

I guess you never really closed that door,
Because I know we've been here before.
I really tried to trust you, tried to readjust to
what you said you must do.
And I know there's a thrill in being bad,
But now you've lost all that you had.
And was it really worth the temporary mirth
Oh no, I know you're hurt, you see.
I know you see.

Your eyes have hidden lies,
But somehow that comes as no surprise.
I was never there when you fantasized.
Two wrongs never make a right,
But somehow I still feel justified,
You weren't the one who was victimized.

Time and time again, I gave you chances,
You assured me then they were just glances,
I believed when you apologized.
You say I'm the one being dramatic,
I can tell that you're being erratic.
How can you think I won't realize.

Your eyes have hidden lies,
But somehow that comes as no surprise.
I wasn't there when you fantasized.
Two wrongs never make a right,
But somehow I still feel justified,
You weren't the one who was victimized.

Your eyes have hidden lies,
But somehow that comes as no surprise.
I was never there when you fantasized.
Two wrongs never make a right,
But somehow I still feel justified,
You weren't the one who was victimized.
