Verse 1

Disappoint me
I know that you'll only disappoint me
Tell me why you trying to act phony
I know who you are
You know it's funny
When I tried to talk you started running
Acting like you dont know what I'm wanting
When I know who you are

Pre chorus

I seen the scratch marks on your back
I read the messages you had
I heard the truth but not from you
Cause that's what you do
I've been around for far to long
I thought its cause that I was strong
But now I finally learned the truth
I was your fool

Chorus

You been spending all your time, all your time
And you been wasting all of mine, all of mine
You just had to find yourself, with somebody else
You keep trying to play with me, play with me
I beg you to stay but you leave, always leave
Guess I must have played my self
As somebody else

Verse 2

I tried to love you
But after that I found it hard to trust you
Every thing you did was like a cruel move
Cause that's who you are
Cant say I'm shocked now
I guess I should have known how this would play out
Acting like you cared but you dont love me
That's not who you are

Pre chorus

I seen the scratch marks on your back

I was your fool

Chorus

You been spending all your time, all your time

Baby, who's gonna fix me when I'm broken
Tell me, who's gonna have the piece you've stolen
Who's gonna be there when you're not around
Stop all my pieces from falling down

Chorus

So light me up, take it away
I don't wanna feel, a thing
So light me up, please take it away
Don't let me feel, the pain

Verse 2

I wonder, do you miss me since you left
Tell me, you've had no luck with all the rest
Don't let me think, that I've been replaced
Throwing my love, right back in my face
What will it take to get you back
Numbness in my heart, but it won't attack

Forget the truth, let's live a lie
Now close your eyes, and say goodnight
Light it up, light it up

When I'm down on my luck, and I can't breathe
When I'm feeling backed up, who's on my side
It's me me me, and a baggie of lies
Don't wanna feel it, done feeling
all of it

I'm a little bit a mess
and a whole lotta reck
So light me up and cross that off my checklist

Telling me your late flight has been cancelled and you wanna know if you can come through
