  • Two hundred days and counting, I know
    You're my favorite still
    When I say I won't, tell myself I don't
    But I always will
    Feel the way I feel
    You have time to heal, I got time to kill

    Play in my mind like I rehearsed it
    I know I should repurpose
    Ain't no faking hurt like this, nah
    You carry her and all I carry are burdens
    Time for me ain't working
    I know heartbreak ain't perfect but

    Is it fair that you moved on?
    'Cause I swear that I haven't
    Is it right that you've grown
    And I'm still stuck in habits?
    'Cause I'm finding it strange
    That you're better than average
    Hearts didn't break down the middle
    Tell me, how did that happen?

    Ooh, ooh
    Ooh (yeah), yeah
    Ooh, ooh
    Ooh
    (Baby, baby)

    Baby
    If we could trade places
    So you'd feel betrayed and
    And I can feel shameless
    I carry all of the weight
    And you get all of the gains
    I can't take all the ways that she might touch you

    'Cause it plays in my mind like I rehearsed it
    I know I should repurpose
    Ain't no faking hurt like this, nah
    You carry her and all I carry are burdens
    Time for me ain't working
    I know heartbreak ain't perfect but

    Is it fair that you moved on? (No fair)
    'Cause I swear that I haven't (ooh)
    Is it right that you've grown
    And I'm still stuck in habits?
    'Cause I'm finding it strange
    That you're better than average
    Hearts didn't break down the middle
    Tell me, how did that happen?

    Ooh, ooh
    Ooh (yeah), yeah
    Ooh, ooh
    Ooh
