Verse 1

You're narcissistic, sadistic,

Wounding me with every word you speak,

With the bullets hanging at the tip of your tongue,

You're stealing away the air from my lung.

Verse 2

You're superficial, egoist,

There's not a situation that you can't twist

And turn into your winning ticket for a big lottery,

Your strength is deception, weakness flattery.

Chorus

You are now "once upon a time",

You are the guy who used to fit in my rhymes

Back in the sweet summer of two thousand twelve.

Now you are tucked away in a faraway shelf.

Cause who you were to me then

Is not who you are to me now-

Yeah, you are never gonna be that guy again.

Verse 3

You're insensitive, cold,

Inflicting more pain than my heart can hold

With how your attitude changes from day to day.

There's darkness even in your brightest ray.

Verse 4

You're unfaithful, unstable,

Pushing me further into the hole where I fell.

But you put up an act, like you don't even have a clue.

You can't fool me anymore, dear, I know you.

Chorus

You are now "once upon a time",

You are the guy who used to fit in my rhymes

Back in the sweet summer of two thousand twelve.

Now you are tucked away in a faraway shelf.

Cause who you were to me then

Is not who you are to me now-

Yeah, you are never gonna be that guy again.

Bridge

You unleashed in my heart a love so strong,

Only to never love me back, know that it's wrong,

It's cruel, how you made me fly so high,

And when I was free-falling, ignored my cry.

And I know why-

You are wearing a mask

Of decency.

Was it too much to ask?

To want you to love me?

I guess I should have known what you are-

Just another scar.

Chorus

You are now "once upon a time",

You are the guy who used to fit in my rhymes

Back in the sweet summer of two thousand twelve.

Now you are tucked away in a faraway shelf.

Cause who you were to me then

Is not who you are to me now-

Yeah, you are never gonna be that guy again.
