  • I don't hate you
    No, I couldn't if I wanted to
    I just hate all the hurt that you put me through
    And that I blame myself for letting you
    Did you know I already knew?

    Couldn't even see you through the smoke
    Lookin' back, I probably should have known
    But I just wanted to believe that you were out sleepin' alone

    Love me with your worst intentions
    Didn't even stop to question
    Every time you burned me down
    Don't know how, for a moment it felt like heaven
    Love me with your worst intentions
    Painted us a happy ending
    Every time you burned me down
    Don't know how, for a moment it felt like heaven

    And it's so gut-wrenchin'
    Fallin' in the wrong direction

    On my tip-toes
    But I still couldn't reach your ego
    Guess I was crazy to give you my body, my mind
    Don't know what I was thinkin' 'til now
    Everyone thinks that your somebody else
    You even convinced yourself

    Couldn't even see you through the smoke
    Lookin' back, I probably should have known
    But I just wanted to believe that you were out sleepin' alone

    Love me with your worst intentions
    Didn't even stop to question
    Every time you burned me down
    Don't know how, for a moment it felt like heaven
    Love me with your worst intentions
    Painted us a happy ending
    Every time you burned me down
    Don't know how, for a moment it felt like heaven

    And it's so gut-wrenchin' (ooh, ooh)
    Fallin' in the wrong direction (ooh, ooh)
    How did you sweep me right off my feet?
    Baby, I can't keep falling in the wrong direction
    How did you sweep me right off my feet?
    Right off my feet

    Couldn't even see you through the smoke
    Lookin' back, I probably should have known
    But I just wanted to believe that you were out sleepin' alone

    Love me with your worst intentions
    Didn't even stop to question (oh, no)
    Every time you burned me down
    Don't know how, for a moment it felt like heaven
    Love me with your worst intentions
    Painted us a happy ending (ooh)
    Every time you burned me down (me down)
    Don't know how, for a moment, it felt like heaven

    And it's so gut-wrenchin'
