Lying from You

Lyricist: Linkin Park    Composer: Linkin Park


When I pretend, everything is what I want it to be,
I looked 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 wanna be pushed aside so let me go
(No, no turning back now)
Let me take me back my life I’d rather be all alone
(No, 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 fittin' 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 wanna 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, 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 what I said would have you running from me
LIKE THIS!
This isn’t what I wanted to be,
I never thought what I said would have you running from me
LIKE THIS!
This isn’t what I wanted to be,
I never thought what I said would have you running from me
LIKE THIS!
This isn’t what I wanted to be,
I never thought what I said would have you running from me
LIKE THIS!

You
(No, no turning back now)
I wanna 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, 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
