  • 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 Writer/s: Amanda Ghost, Ian Dench, Scott Mcfarnon
