lyrics

He is wonderful
He is pitiful
And it is painfully clear that
He's not in control, he's not in control

I built a wall around
All around my heart
Not to keep you out
but to keep me in
I cannot be trusted
I cannot be free
with all these beautiful girls
around me

I ain't blind, I can see
One thing as clear can be
You are not the same man
When you aren't around me
But it's the flip that gets me
Makes me a little crazy
You are not the same girl
When you aren't around me

I never spoke up
I never raised my voice
I never shouted out
Never made a noise
Now I’m here
Just kicking myself
Never making it clear
I've been faking this whole damn thing

She is beautiful
And I am pitiful
And it is painfully clear that
I am not in control, I am not in control

I built a wall around
All around my heart
Just to keep you out
So you wouldn't keep me in
You cannot be trusted
and I gotta be free
I'm not gonna have
another catastrophe

I never spoke up
I never raised my voice
I never shouted out
Never made a noise
Now I’m here
Just kicking myself
Never making it clear
I've been faking this whole damn thing
