Rumor Mill

Album: Best Intentions (2011)
  • Here we go again,
    It's like you're calling all the shots before I shoot them
    And I hate that.
    Every time I turn my back I wonder what you'll
    Say to make me sound like someone different

    It's not worth it anymore!

    We've been picking up the pieces
    Leaving all the dust behind.
    Sick of all the pressure
    You're just wasting time
    And I don't ever wanna know what it feels like
    To be a shadow of myself
    And I don't ever wanna come back down from this feeling
    What makes you think that you know what's better for me
    And I don't think you wanna see what's underneath
    Your made up version of me

    There you go again believing
    That the truth is what you're reading
    Talk some shit I haven't heard before.
    If you've got something to say
    Don't wanna talk about it
    If you need someone to blame
    Don't wanna cry about it
    I measure life in minutes but these critics think they've got me figured out

    We've been picking up the pieces
    Leaving all the dust behind.
    Sick of all the pressure
    You're just wasting time
    And I don't ever wanna know what it feels like
    To be a shadow of myself
    And I don't ever wanna come back down from this feeling
    What makes you think that you know what's better for me
    And I don't think you wanna see what's underneath
    Your made up version of me

    I lost the strength to keep my grip on the reality that
    Everything from day to day is
    Fading from my memory but I'll
    Never let this grow
    Out of my control and watch your steps
    So you don't fall into this hole you've dug alone

    This hole you've dug alone

    And I don't ever wanna know what it feels like
    To be a shadow of myself
    And I don't ever wanna come back down from this feeling
    What makes you think that you know what's better for me
    And I don't think you wanna see what's underneath
    Your made up version of me

    Your made up version of me Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
