Brilliant Lies

Brilliant Lies

New Years Day

I'm trying to sleep,
But this pain in my chest,
It's keeping me awake,
And every breath I take,
Feels like it's my last
I want to be fine,I want to be sure
I want to be a lot of things,
And none of them include you.
I keep telling myself,
I'm not miserable
I keep telling myself,
I'm better off without you

I believed that you meant
Everything you said,
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories
For the pain and the lies
Every time I had to cry
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories

I don't understand,
Cause it doesn't make sense
The way you broke it off,
Took away my heart,
Took away all of my friends
I want to go out
And get out of this house
Bet to begin again
Is gonna take more than
I think I'd ever have to give.
I keep telling myself,
I'm not miserable
I keep telling myself,
I'm better off without you

I believed that you meant
Everything you said,
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories
For the pain and the lies
Every time I had to cry
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories
I believed that I was
So cleverly deceived,
By good looks,some charm and
A brilliant lie.
All the time that was spent,
Being used,I should have said,
Goodbye and thanks for the memories.

I want to know why,
You're such an idiot,
I want to know how
You can even live with it.
I wanna know why,
I should even give a damn
About you missing me so terribly.

I'm starting to sleep,
A little easier now.
Now that I'm over this
And I've made up my mind
To never fall in love again,
With someone like you
Someone so confused
I just wish I would have
Realized that a long
Time before I had.

I believed that you meant
Everything you said,
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories
For the pain and the lies
Every time I had to cry.
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories.
I believed that I was
So cleverly deceived,
By good looks,some charm and
A brilliant lie.
All the time that was spent,
Being used,I should have said,
Goodbye and thanks for the memories.
I believed that you meant
Everything you said,
Goodbye,and thanks for the memories!
