Verse 1

If only you'd opened your eyes, you would have seen,

All the little things I did for you, and everything they mean.

If only you'd known how I always put myself on the line

Just to help you out of some mess, and make sure you're fine.

Verse 2

But you were too busy believing every word she said,

You hated me with such intensity, it rendered me half dead.

Why does real life come with these cruel witty villains

Who would tear everything apart to cause good people pain?

Chorus

It was supposed to be simple,

It was supposed to go well.

Just two people in love, and a happily ever after.

But enter villain, exit all the laughter.

From there, it all went straight to hell-

Becoming the opposite of simple.

And none of this would have happened if only you

Had once tried to believe in the things I say and do.

Verse 3

I tried for a long time to hold on, I tried to be strong.

Because I thought that you're my destiny, it's where I belong.

I guess I was wrong; it was one-sided from start to end.

Whether you'd hurt me or ignore me on a day would depend.

Chorus

It was supposed to be simple,

It was supposed to go well.

Just two people in love, and a happily ever after.

But enter villain, exit all the laughter.

From there, it all went straight to hell-

Becoming the opposite of simple.

And none of this would have happened if only you

Had once tried to believe in the things I say and do.

Bridge

And I'm sorry, but sometimes I think about how it would have been,

If only you had opened your heart to the idea that there can be an us,

And we'd be perfect, we'd be happy, and our love would encompass

Every single immortal love story that this lovely world has ever seen.

Chorus

It was supposed to be simple,

It was supposed to go well.

Just two people in love, and a happily ever after.

But enter villain, exit all the laughter.

From there, it all went straight to hell-

Becoming the opposite of simple.

And none of this would have happened if only you

Had once tried to believe in the things I say and do.
