Lyrics

I?ve been choosing to see only what I want

I framed this picture perfect - which I?ve placed my hopes upon

and through this mad charade - how was I to know

that I?d gone and tricked my mind into believing in my own joke


all my expectations are losing this war

and I?ve been set up for disaster

with my soured hopes of something more



Chorus
I?m lying to myself and I think that I might like it
my world looks so much better when I do

and I?m deceiving my heart hoping that you?ll tell me

you?ve gone and changed into someone new

but the truth remains you could never change

even if you wanted to

cuz I?m losing - losing my mind in my illusions


hoping you?d become the one that I dreamed of

has been a slow slow suicide and a sick and twisted love

but through this mad charade - how was I to know

that you?d never become my dream - not even close



all my expectations are losing this war

and I?ve been set up for disaster

with my soured hopes of something more



Chorus



Repeat Chorus

Lying baby - yeah ? better when I do

Foolish heart ? tell me - into someone new

truth remains ? never change

baby don?t you want to change for me?

no baby don?t you want to change for me?
