And I'm alright  Standing in the streetlights here
Is this meant for me
My time on the outside is over
We don't know how you're spending 
All of your days
 Knowing that love isn't here
You see the pictures 
But you don't know their names no
 Cause love isn't here

And I can't do this by myself 
All of these problems, they're all in your head
And I can't be somebody else
You took something perfect
And painted it red

No sympathy 
When shouting out is all you know
 Behind your lies
I can see the secrets you don't show
We don't know how you're spending 
All of your days
 Knowing that love isn't here
You see the pictures 
But you don't know their names no
 Cause love isn't here

And I can't do this by myself 
All of these problems, they're all in your head
And I can't be somebody else
You took something perfect
And painted it red
When, you took something perfect
And painted it red

You take the best things from
Then everything gets empty 
That's not a world that I need
Ooh, you take the best things from me
Then everything gets empty 
That's not a world that I need
Oh

And I can't do this by myself 
All of these problems, they're all in your head
And I can't be somebody else
You took something perfect
And painted it red
When, you took something perfect
And painted it red
When, you took something perfect and painted it red
You took something perfect
And painted it red
