lyrics

I'm tired of defending you
In your petty ways
I'm tired of being disappointed by you
When you'd said you'd changed

Can't you just be
Good for once
Can't you just be
Good for once
I've tried all of my techniques
But they never seem so work
And rapid fire you spoke the lines
That will make it all seem fine

You paint a picture
With your words
But the truth is never
What I heard

You'd think I'd've learned by now
It's happened so many times
And rapid fire you spun the lies
That would justify your crimes

Your tongue of gold will be your downfall
There's something to be said for saying nothing at all

Because you're the loudest everyone's listening
And all of your wrongs I'll end up forgiving
One day you're the best friend that I’ve ever had
The next you're some person that I've never met

Talk so big that your words consume me
And everyone thinks you're the perfect human
And I haven't told you for way too long
Avoided the subject ’til I wrote this song

You don't know what this does to me
I've put up walls
I'll pick and choose what I believe
To try and break the fall

You paint a picture
With your words
But the truth is never
What I heard

You'd think I'd've learned by now
It's happened so many times
