My old friend heartache’s back again
That’s what you’d like me to pretend
You’re so cute when you condescend
We both know that you heard exactly what I said
The joke’s on you
I don’t care
So why are you acting like I do?
Not hard to tell
I forgot how much you love flattering yourself
It really makes this so much easier
You’ve only ever felt relieved
That’s what you’d like me to believe
You must think I’m so naive
I never really needed all that time to grieve
I’ll play along
And you can
Act like you’re the point of every song
It’s what you need
And somehow I keep on forgetting I don’t owe you anything
I never did
It’s a game of luck
That we play for blood
