When I pretend everything is what I want it to be
I look exactly like what you always wanted to see
When I pretend, I can't 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'll 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 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 for 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)
'Cause 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 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 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, 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)
