Closer

She was closer to her god than me
So,I'm gonna make you hurt †
I'm gonna make you bleed †
I'm gonna make you feel bad †
for the way you think of me †  
She was flipping through the bible †
The inks her tools for survival †
Rewrite words put her in denial †

Let her put on †
that fake smile †
Trusted her until †
she broke a rule †
read that book †
after I went to bed  

  †† She was closer to her god than me †
So,I'm gonna make you hurt  
†† † †I'm gonna make you bleed †
†† † †I'm gonna make you feel bad †
†† † †for the way you think of me †
†  
She could be a ten I'd tell her but †
she'd wind up with another guy  

I want her to know, the truth she deserves †
I'm selfish I'm lying †
Someday weíll both Get what We deserve  

but for now I'll keep †
saying all those things  
you never want to hear †
So you'll stay with me, †
until you smarten up †

She was closer to her god than me †
So,  
I'm gonna make you hurt †
I'm gonna make you bleed †
I'm gonna make you feel bad †
for the way you think of me
