Lyrics

Mannequin love
V:
When we first started out
I knew what love was all about
It was you and me nothing in between
Cuz u had every piece of my heart
It seemed like everything was going right
Cuz there was no trouble in sight
Little did I know just where things would go
When we got past all the fronts
Underneath the fake smiles
There lies the person
And If you're not acting for love
Then what's the point of rehearsing
We're on a one way street to never
With a shortcut thru disappointment
Well ya ride stops here and I'm a keep going cuz I can't take no moreee

C:
Where I'm hurting inside u can't heal
We got that mannequin love, its not real
and when I open my mouth to reveal
Just how I feel, the other half of me says

She won't hear u, u might as well mime
Go get priceless and leave this dime behind
You're gonna explode, like walking on mines
Your fuse is short on time

V2:
I should've been wiser, should've opened up my eyes
Instead I was blinded, fell in love with a disguise
But as much as I blame you, I've gotta take some of it too
Cuz had I kept it real with myself, then I could've kept it real with you
Shouldn't have to tell u this way
its the only way you'd listen
Baby real love is my aim
And with u its simply missing
So if we don't have love
Then our relationship is fiction
And now the clock is ticking cuz I can't take no more

C:
Where I'm hurting inside u can't heal
We got that mannequin love, its not real
and when I open my mouth to reveal
Just how I feel, the other half of me says

She won't hear u, u might as well mime
Go get priceless and leave this dime behind
You're gonna explode, like walking on mines
Your fuse is short on time

B:
I don't wanna be a victim of love suicide, no I really don't
So I gotta get u out of my life, by any means necessary I'll Malcolm x ya
I'm so convinced, that I should've left ya
And I don't know how else to say, so I broke it down this way

U - is for the fact that I understand

R- shows I realize we're human

S - just says its my second chance
I - so I initiated my plan
N - is equal to no more nonsense
G - means that u have to get gone quick
L - is for the love u couldve had
E - is enough and that's just what I've had
