  • There was this boy who came to town
    Was cooler than the boys in all my crazy dreams
    All the problems I thought I had all but disappeared
    And he would always
    Always think of me first
    And we were writing the history books and we were so in love
    And there was this girl, she used to hang out
    I never saw anything, anyone, no one so beautiful
    And she would sit around
    And wait for the day to end
    And she would offer herself as if she had nowhere else to go
    And I didn't think nothing of it
    And that's when my life went cold
    And then she was not sleeping in your bed
    And she was all over you
    And there she was sleeping in my bed
    And then there were all these issues
    And then there were all these issues

    This time I'm gonna get it right
    I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim

    And all the things we used to say and used to do together
    And I can't believe
    That there were such good things between us
    And we threw them all away
    Just because this girl
    She thought that she had something to say
    And all the things I'm now left with are scarred upon my mind
    And I can't believe all these times I used to wait
    And I never used to go out and show myself
    Cos I got everything I need
    And you need to stop that now
    You used to stop me doing what I wanted
    And now I can't do it anymore
    Cos I discovered there's something about me
    That everybody wants some more
    That everybody wants some more

    This time I'm gonna get it right
    I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim

    And after all that's said and done
    I had to
    Pick myself up and find myself at number one
    Cos this isn't about you anymore
    This is all about me
    It wasn't your fault that I was living up in a tree
    I was waiting for things
    I was waiting for things to come to me
    We were never in love
    And we were never meant to be
    All the things that you said
    I don't hold you responsible
    I needed to get myself together
    And that's what've I gone and done
    And that's what I've gone and done
    And that's what I've gone and done
    And now I'm here right now
    And my life has just begun
    My life has just begun

    This time I'm gonna get it right
    I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    This time I'm gonna get it right
    I'm gonna paint my face like the Guggenheim Writer/s: JULES DE MARTINO, KATIE WHITE
