lyrics

Prepare excuses, your words are useless, keep using people until the people around you run out
Keep making pretend, become so distant, sacrifice feelings for things, with ill intent

Now I realize the glint that I saw in your eyes was just reflecting off of mine, you had no feelings you just mirrored mine
So use me up and spend me until I’m gone
Just take what you want, and what’s left of me is moving on

You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you is deep
Your shallow waters were just mud to my feet
You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you holds meaning
We’re not a fairytale worth believing

I saw into my future and you’re not there, the tiniest shadow standing where you used to be
A hole in the plan I failed to see
It’s just a game to you, a checkerboard of blue, throw out those feelings I felt
I wasn’t part of your plan, you found a better man (I’m just a notch in your belt)

You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you is deep
Your shallow waters were just mud to my feet
You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you holds meaning
We’re not a fairytale worth believing

I never even tried to see through your disguise
I just wanted the surface the feeling was perfect until it died

You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you is deep
Your shallow waters were just mud to my feet
You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you holds meaning
We’re not a fairytale worth believing
