Verse 1

I just don't know how to make you see

That you're wasting your time, that he

Is just not worth your efforts to save him,

The chances of him coming back are so slim.

Verse 2

I just don't know how to make you see

That it's as good and bad as it'll ever be,

He doesn't care about you, he never did,

You can do better, he's not what you need.

Pre-chorus

And then I fall into a complex net

Of monologue with myself when I see

I'm walking in the same shoe as you.

We're making the same mistake, you and me.

Chorus

That's why first I need to convince myself

That instead of the hours I waste thinking up ways

To make him jealous, I need to seek help,

And find the strength to let go of my demons and say,

Hey, I lost a part of me, I lost my hopes and dreams,

But there's a bigger part of me now behind my screams

That realizes that he lost someone who really loved him while

I lost someone whose favorite job is to wipe away my smile.

Verse 3

Three months later, I'm finally in therapy.

"Deep breathes, breath in new energy,"

Open my eyes and it's now a new world,

Look in the mirror, it's a brand new girl.

Pre-chorus

And then I fall into a complex net

Of monologue with myself when I see

I was walking in the same shoe as you.

We were making the same mistake, you and me.

Chorus

That's why first I need to convince myself

That instead of the hours I waste thinking up ways

To make him jealous, I need to seek help,

And find the strength to let go of my demons and say,

Hey, I lost a part of me, I lost my hopes and dreams,

But there's a bigger part of me now behind my screams

That realizes that he lost someone who really loved him while

I lost someone whose favorite job is to wipe away my smile.

Bridge

And next, I'm working on you,

Telling you that first you need to look after

Your own self- instead of planning to

Make him cry too, find reasons for your laughter.

That's what I did.

I was being stupid.

I needed to realize my life didn't revolve around that guy.

I needed to focus on all the dreams in my eyes,

Instead of planning revenge and wreaking havoc,

I needed to utilize my newly regained independence and time

To get into this much needed monologue.

Chorus

That's why first I need to convince myself

That instead of the hours I waste thinking up ways

To make him jealous, I need to seek help,

And find the strength to let go of my demons and say,

Hey, I lost a part of me, I lost my hopes and dreams,

But there's a bigger part of me now behind my screams

That realizes that he lost someone who really loved him while

I lost someone whose favorite job is to wipe away my smile.

Chorus

And I think first you need to convince yourself

That instead of the hours you waste thinking up ways

To make him jealous, you need to seek help,

And find the strength to let go of your demons and say,

Hey, I lost a part of me, I lost my hopes and dreams,

But there's a bigger part of me now behind my screams

That realizes that he lost someone who really loved him while

I lost someone whose favorite job is to wipe away my smile.

Outro

I can only hold your hand girl,

I can't change your thoughts with my words,

That's why you need to start your own monologue,

Then you'll reach the day when it no longer hurts.
