  • You made plans and I, I made problems
    We were sleepin' back to back
    We know this thing wasn't built to last, yeah
    Good on paper, picture perfect
    Chased the high too far, too fast
    Picket white fence, but we paint it black

    (Ooh) and I wished you had hurt me harder than I hurt you
    (Ooh) and I wish you wouldn't wait for me but you always do

    I've been hopin'
    Somebody loves you in the ways I couldn't
    Somebody's taking care of
    All of the mess I made
    Someone you don't have to change
    I've been hopin'
    Someone will love you, let me go

    Someone will love you, let me go
    I've been hopin'
    Someone will love you, let me go

    It's been some time, but this time ain't even
    I can leave it in the past
    But you're holdin' onto what you never had
    Good on paper, picture perfect
    Chased the high too far, too fast
    Picket white fence, but we paint it black

    (Ooh) and I wished you had hurt me harder than I hurt you
    (Ooh) and I wish you wouldn't wait for me but you always do

    I've been hopin'
    Somebody loves you in the ways I couldn't
    Somebody's taking care of
    All of the mess I made
    Someone you don't have to change
    I've been hopin'
    Someone will love you, let me go

    Someone will love you, let me go
    I've been hopin'
    Someone will love you, let me go (go, go)
    Someone will love you, let me go (go, go)
    Someone will love you, let me go (go, go)
    Someone will love you, let me go (go, go)
    Someone will love you, let me go

    I've been hopin'
    Somebody loves you in the ways I couldn't
    Somebody's taking care of
    All of the mess I made
    Someone you don't have to change
    I've been hopin'
    Someone will love you, let me go Writer/s: Alessandro Rodolfo Renato Lindblad, Alexandra Leah Tamposi, Andrew Wotman, Brian D. Lee, Jamie Alexander Lidderdale
