  • Look me in the eyes
    Tell me you're not lying to me
    See through your disguise
    You can't keep on hiding from me
    Time to make it right
    So why are you still sayin' I'm wrong?
    Well, it's only a matter of
    Time to set it straight
    Time to tell the world
    That you've been lying on my name
    Doing what you want
    And think you're gonna get away
    Well, I'll leave it up to faith for now

    But it's only a matter of time
    An eye for an eye, you'll go blind
    And when did you stop being kind?
    You twisted your words like a knife
    Well, I'm sure that you're hurting inside
    But why would you make your pain mine?
    You're making me pay for your crimes
    Well, darling I'll be fine
    But it's only a matter of

    It ain't over yet
    You can't tear me down
    And act like I will just forget
    When karma comes around
    Then you'll be drowning in regret
    But it's not about revenge tonight

    No, it's only a matter of time
    An eye for an eye, you'll go blind
    And when did you stop being kind?
    You twisted your words like a knife, oh

    Pick myself up off the floor
    You can't hurt me no more
    Of this endless charade
    I'm not playing your game
    You can say what you like
    Doesn't mean that you're right
    Are you glad you got that out
    Do you feel better now?
    Do you feel better now? Oh

    Time
    An eye for an eye, you'll go blind
    When did you stop being kind?
    You twisted your words like a knife
    Well, I'm sure that you're hurting inside
    But why would you make your pain mine?
    You're making me pay for your crimes
    Well, darling I'll be fine
    But it's only a matter of time Writer/s: Amy Victoria Wadge, Joshua Bassett
