Lying from You [Live in Texas]
by Linkin Park



When I pretend
Everything is what I want it to be
I look exactly like what you had always wanted to see
When I pretend
I can forget about the criminal, I am
Stealing second after second just cause I know I can but
I can't pretend this is the way it will stay
I'm just trying to bend the truth
I can't pretend I'm who you want me to be
So I'm
Lying my way from you

[no, no turning back now]
I want to be pushed aside
So let me go
[no, no turning back now]
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
[no turning back now]
Anywhere on my own
Cause I can see
[no no turning back now]
The very worst part of you
Is me

I remember what they taught to me
Remember condescending talk of who I ought to be
Remember listening to all of that and this again
So I pretended up a person who was fitting in
And now you think this person really is me and I'm
[trying to bend the truth]
But the more I push
The more I'm pulling away
Cause I'm

Lying my way from you

[no, no turning back now]
I want to be pushed aside
So let me go
[no, no turning back now]
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
[no turning back now]
Anywhere on my own
Cause I can see
[no no turning back now]
The very worst part of you
The very worst part of you
Is me

This isn't what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

This isn't what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

This isn't what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

This isn't what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

You
[no turning back now]
I want to be pushed aside
So let me go
[no, no turning back now]
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
[no turning back now]
Anywhere on my own
Cause I can see
[no, no turning back now]
The very worst part of you
The very worst part of you
Is me
