Verse 1

And that moment when everything is crystal clear,

You feel like you just want and need to disappear,

Because you have no idea how everything is going to be tomorrow.

You had the illusion of having a man who was never yours to borrow.

Verse 2

And now he's back in the hands where he belongs,

He was never yours to keep- it was never your song.

Don't take it personally, I promise he didn't mean to hurt you at any stage.

He just needed someone to make her jealous, you were collateral damage.

Chorus

You were just collateral damage,

A book with dust on every page.

He never meant to hurt you, make no mistake.

So get up, get down, box up your heart break,

And throw away all your rage.

You were just collateral damage.

You've yourself believed that when it comes to love, everything is fair.

And he really loves her, you've known that all along, so don't just stand there.

You put your heart at stake,

Now box up your heart break,

And throw away all your rage-

You were just collateral damage.

Verse 3

He just needed to show her he can get a girl any day.

He didn't drag you into this, you gave your heart away.

You believed him when he said they are over and he can't stand her anymore.

Blame yourself, you completely ignored the "don't trust him" sign stuck on his door.

Verse 4

He just needed a girl, any girl, he didn't mean to hurt you,

Nothing personal, you're his close friend, you loved him too.

And he waited ten full days before he patched things up with her, what an angel!

Sorry, but you can't go back and stab yourself on the day you let this Titanic sail.

Chorus

You were just collateral damage,

A book with dust on every page.

He never meant to hurt you, make no mistake.

So get up, get down, box up your heart break,

And throw away all your rage.

You were just collateral damage.

Bridge

And really, you don't need revenge.

You're good, your time will change.

Just let him get away with his little game,

Grab pop-corn, see what happens to them.

Girl who hates objectification of women, and guy who watches porn,

You've known fire and ice don't go well from the day you were born.

And her best friend warned her about him,

And she's watched you through this bad dream.

She can have him, after all, she met him first.

But his collateral damage will be losing her trust.

Chorus

You were just collateral damage,

A book with dust on every page.

He never meant to hurt you, make no mistake.

So get up, get down, box up your heart break,

And throw away all your rage.

You were just collateral damage.

You've yourself believed that when it comes to love, everything is fair.

And he really loves her, you've known that all along, so don't just stand there.

You put your heart at stake,

Now box up your heart break,

And throw away all your rage-

You were just collateral damage.
