Chorus

Don't listen to them,

You know you deserve better.

You deserve a guy

Who'd treat you like treasure.

Verse 1

How long will you keep up with the wishing and the hoping?

How long will you cry? You're strong enough to be coping

With the loss of a nightmare that felt like a dream,

And a happy sigh that really was a muffled scream.

Pre-chorus

See, what felt right was actually wrong.

You've gotta find a guy who'd make you feel like you belong,

Instead of making you gasp for air

Like a fish out of water.

No, damn your excuses, I don't care,

You deserve so much better.

Chorus

So don't listen to them,

You know you deserve better.

You deserve a guy

Who'd treat you like treasure.

Verse 2

How long will you keep on combing through the old pictures?

How long will you long for moments that are now too far?

Don't you see he's too far gone now to come back?

Your heart will bleed dark red till you make it fade to black.

Pre-chorus

See, what felt right was actually wrong.

You've gotta find a guy who'd make you feel like you belong,

Instead of making you gasp for air

Like a fish out of water.

No, damn your excuses, I don't care,

You deserve so much better.

Chorus

So don't listen to them,

You know you deserve better.

You deserve a guy

Who'd treat you like treasure.

Bridge

So let it all blur,

Let it all blur.

He's moving on, so why are you stuck?

You can yell at the stars, you can blame your luck.

Or you can watch that movie you put off since you met him-

See, it was a nightmare that felt like a dream,

And a happy sigh that really was a muffled scream.

Chorus

So don't listen to them,

You know you deserve better.

You deserve a guy

Who'd treat you like treasure.

A/N: In my head there's five seconds of complete silence between the first chorus and verse 2.
