lyrics

Picture perfect, you're not worth it, 'least that's what you think
I could tell a million stories, all of them would seem to lack a link
Blink to you in the morning light
Your eyes see through me like transparent shades
And it's times like these when I'm afraid

Never trust my intuition, failure seems to be my mission
It’s as if I only listen to those pretty lies
But this time let’s strike a bargain
You give me your heart
And you can take my word tonight

When you're honest you don't listen, when you're true, you're blind
Rest upon a cozy web of lies tonight

Never trust your intuition, failure seems to be your mission
It’s as if you only listen to my pretty lies
But this time let’s strike a bargain
You give me your heart
And you can take my word tonight

So the moral to my story, think you’ll all agree
That the world of lies revealed the truth to me

Now I trust my intuition, failure no longer my mission
It’s as if I stopped to listen to those pretty lies
But this time let’s strike a bargain
You give me your heart
And you can take my word tonight

Would you let your guard down if I were the truth?
Would you hold me to your eyes?
Look me upside down and inside out
I want you to, oh, I want you to
Won't you take my word?
Take my word, take my word, take my word
Oh, take my word tonight
