  • I can't go along with it
    You can say just what you like
    But you still did it
    You backtrack and change your act
    At a hundred likes a minute
    But fool as I am I won't go along with it

    Am I confused, am I a crazy person
    You say it's old news
    She doesn't mean nothing
    But don't you understand that I am heartbroken
    No matter what you do
    You just can't make it untrue

    You're breathing lies
    I want to believe in
    When I'm watching you walk out the door
    I could fall through the floor

    But I can't go along with it
    You can say just what you like
    But you still did it
    You backtrack and change your act
    At a hundred lies a minute
    But fool as I am I won't go along with it

    Too much to lose and it's still raining
    I know it's not a game
    So I'll stop playing
    But oh my heart's on fire
    And it keeps burning
    And I don't mean to cry
    It's just the smoke gets in my eyes

    You're breathing lies
    I want to believe in
    When I'm watching you walk out the door
    I could fall through the floor

    But I can't go along with it
    You can say just what you like
    But you still did it
    You backtrack and change your act
    At a hundred lies a minute
    But fool as I am I won't go along with it

    Let the battle drum start
    I wanna turn back the clock
    I wanna find the missing pieces
    Of the whole love I lost
    You say it like you mean it
    And I wand to believe it
    Because I can't stop this feeling

    But I can't go along with it
    You can say just what you like
    But you still did it
    You backtrack and change your act
    At a hundred lies a minute
    But fool as I am I won't go along with it Writer/s: REBECCA FERGUSON, JONNY LATIMER
