Verse 1

I never try to see the other side of the full moon,

I never try to predict the bursting of my balloon.

I'm the kind of girl who gets lost in the deepest woods,

And still keeps believing that her ending would be good.

Chorus

So while you're out on your newest spree,

Just look at what you did to me.

You stole the hope away from an optimist,

You squeezed my strongest faith in your calloused fists.

I've put out my candle, shut my door.

I don't know what to believe anymore,

And I'm just so scared,

Cause for a second there,

I actually let myself believe you

Could somehow someday want me too.

I see how big of a fool I can be,

Just look at what you did to me.

Verse 2

I'm always smiling like a child spotting a butterfly.

I'm always talking like I had a dream I touched the sky.

I'm the girl everyone turns to when they're breaking down,

And I can make them believe they can turn it around.

Chorus

So while you're out on your newest spree,

Just look at what you did to me.

You stole the hope away from an optimist,

You squeezed my strongest faith in your calloused fists.

I've put out my candle, shut my door.

I don't know what to believe anymore,

And I'm just so scared,

Cause for a second there,

I actually let myself believe you

Could somehow someday want me too.

I see how big of a fool I can be,

Just look at what you did to me.

Bridge

I used to fall asleep staring at the neon stars at my ceiling,

Terrified of aliens, how they can abduct me any day any place.

These days I'm wide awake analyzing just how numb I'm feeling,

Terrified of humans, now that you've forced me to see their real face.

Chorus

So while you're out on your newest spree,

Just look at what you did to me.

You stole the hope away from an optimist,

You squeezed my strongest faith in your calloused fists.

I've put out my candle, shut my door.

I don't know what to believe anymore,

And I'm just so scared,

Cause for a second there,

I actually let myself believe you

Could somehow someday want me too.

I see how big of a fool I can be,

Just look at what you did to me.

Outro

I want my old self back.

I wanna wake up believing today I can bring everything to the right track.

I want my old self back.

I want my old self back.

I want my old self back. (Fades)
