Verse 1

And I'm open-eyed

When I finally realize

There's no way I can spend my life

Wishing I was her,

Crossing my fingers,

Making wishes on shooting stars.

Yeah, every single time anyone has walked down that street,

They've ended up getting hit by a car.

Chorus

So I'm giving up and I'm giving in,

I've lost you, now I'll lose this feeling,

This love that feels like a second skin.

Yeah, you keep me around like a last resort- third grade option.

You push me away like I'm rust clinging to your heart of iron.

But I'm giving up and I'm giving in,

I've lost you, now I'll lose this feeling,

This love that feels like a second skin.

Verse 2

And I just can't pretend-

I don't want this to end

In such a way so that I spend my life

Broken and bruised,

Feeling like I was used,

Second guessing the paths I choose.

Yeah, I'm so not walking down that street now, oh, no,

I've got just way too much to lose.

Chorus

So I'm giving up and I'm giving in,

I've lost you, now I'll lose this feeling,

This love that feels like a second skin.

Yeah, you keep me around like a last resort- third grade option.

You push me away like I'm rust clinging to your heart of iron.

But I'm giving up and I'm giving in,

I've lost you, now I'll lose this feeling,

This love that feels like a second skin.

Chorus

So I'm giving up and I'm giving in,

I've lost you, now I'll lose this feeling,

This love that feels like a second skin.

Yeah, you keep me around like a last resort- third grade option.

You push me away like I'm rust clinging to your heart of iron.

But I'm giving up and I'm giving in,

I've lost you, now I'll lose this feeling,

This love that feels like a second skin.

Chorus

So I'm giving up and I'm giving in,

I've lost you, now I'll lose this feeling,

This love that feels like a second skin (And it's hard enough breathing in).

Yeah, you keep me around like a last resort (you make my thoughts distort)- third grade option.

You push me away like I'm rust (everything is crumbling to dust) clinging to your heart of iron.

But I'm giving up and I'm giving in,

I've lost you, now I'll lose this feeling,

This love that feels like a second skin,

Cause I like my own skin better, thank you very much.
