Verse 1

What did I ever see in that boy?

It's like he's such a perfect alloy

Of everything I need and everything I hate.

This relationship always felt like a roulette.

And I lost it all.

I took your fall.

Aimed for a homerun but I missed the ball.

Chorus

Well, you're a fish living in shallow waters,

While I prefer the deep sea.

You're superficial, I love with all my heart,

That's why we're never meant to be.

Verse 2

How did I ever fall for your lies?

It's like you wore the perfect disguise,

And hid your vicious sniper under your blanket

Of sweet little moments that I'll never forget.

You make me feel small.

We're a big lol.

Tried to fly but now I can only crawl.

Chorus

Well, you're a fish living in shallow waters,

While I prefer the deep sea.

You're superficial, I love with all my heart,

That's why we're never meant to be.

Bridge

I put my heart on the line,

Ignored all the warning signs.

Your smile always felt divine.

Now it stings me like leaves of the pine,

Like the forked tongue of serpentine,

Like thorns from a notorious vine...

But I pretend I'm fine.

Chorus

Well, you're a fish living in shallow waters,

While I prefer the deep sea.

You're superficial, I love with all my heart,

That's why we're never meant to be.
