  • You send a text
    It's like the wind changed your mind
    We were best friends
    Yeah, we were burning our lives
    With every kiss, and every letter
    Every promise of forever, oh
    But you hit send
    And disappeared in front of my eyes

    And now you're just a ghost
    When I look back never would have known that
    You could be so cold
    Like a stranger vanish like a vapor
    There's just an echo where your heart used to be
    Now I see it clearly
    And there's just a pillow where your head used to sleep
    My vision's twenty twenty

    I see through you now
    Something is tight
    Now that I have made up my mind
    I'll be alright
    It doesn't harm me at night

    'Cause every gift, every letter, every promise of forever
    Now, it's out of sight
    Like you were never alive

    And now you're just a ghost
    When I look back never would have known that
    You could be so cold
    Like a stranger vanish like a vapor
    There's just an echo where your heart used to be
    Now I see it clearly
    And there's just a pillow where your head used to sleep
    My vision's twenty twenty
    I see through you now, now, now, now, now
    Now, now, now, now, now

    So rest in piece
    I see you on the other side

    And now you're just a ghost
    When I look back never would have known that
    You could be so cold
    Like a stranger vanish like a vapor
    There's just an echo where your heart used to be
    Now I see it clearly
    And there's just a pillow where your head used to sleep
    My vision's twenty twenty
    I see through you now, now, now, now, now
    Oh, now, now, now, now, now

    I see through you now, now, now, now, now
    Now, now, now, now, now
    I see through you now Writer/s: BONNIE LEIGH MCKEE, HENRY RUSSELL WALTER, KATY PERRY, LUKASZ GOTTWALD, MAX MARTIN
