Burn like a cigarette 
All inside my head
 Reminding me not to forget 
Words, words I'd never say
 Things along the way
 Their telling me that I'm the best

'Cause your face it doesn't look like it did
You give away everything now that you've hid
You, you want to be only
To never be lonely 
So you opened up your arms and took me in
And this our last goodbye 
And this is a perfect lie
Told by someone that I used to know back then

Help, help is on the way
That's what they all say
It's a thing that they don't know
'Cause I, I know everything 
And maybe it's just a ring
But that won't make me let it go

Look at your face it doesn't look like it did
You give away everything now that you've hid
You, you want to be only
To never be lonely 
So you opened up your arms and let me in
And this our last goodbye 
And this is your perfect lie
Told by someone that I used to know back then

Look at your face it doesn't look like it did
You hide your love
But your not willing now to give, willing now to give
You, you want to be only
To never be lonely 
So you opened up your arms and let me in
And this our last goodbye 
And this is your perfect lie
Told by someone that I used to know back then

And this is our last goodbye 
And this is another lie
That I never have to hear that voice again
