If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.

Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Oh, with her glowing eyes

She will be his demise

(Be his demise)

With her perfectly flowing hair

And her effortless indifferent air

(Indifferent air)

Oh, how can I compete with her beauty?

The way she steals my man is pure cruelty

(Pure cruelty)

Oh, how can I compete with her beauty?

The way I poke and prod his heart is pure cruelty

(His heart is pure cruelty)

Oh, he’s falling for the girl that isn’t me

Oh, he’s falling for the me that isn’t me

 

Don’t let her fool you, it’s all just a front

Don’t get caught up in her dangerous hunt

(Her dangerous hunt)

She wants to steal your heart, and

Leave you falling apart

(Falling apart)

But you’re safe here with me

Ignore her, I know she is tempting

(She is tempting)

 

Oh, with her glowing eyes

She will be his demise

(Be his demise)

With her perfectly flowing hair

And her effortless indifferent air

(Indifferent air)

Oh, how can I compete with her beauty?

The way she steals my man is pure cruelty

(Pure cruelty)

Oh, how can I compete with her beauty?

The way I poke and prod his heart is pure cruelty

(His heart is pure cruelty)

Oh, he’s falling for the girl that isn’t me

Oh, he’s falling for the me that isn’t me

 

Don’t run away from the history we have built

Don’t run away from our deception and our guilt

(And our guilt)

Beneath it all, lies something that will hold

Don’t run to her and get yourself controlled

(Yourself controlled)

Open your eyes to see the truth all along

Open your eyes to see that you’ve been looking at this all wrong

(This all wrong)

 

Oh, with her glowing eyes

She will be his demise

(Be his demise)

With her perfectly flowing hair

And her effortless indifferent air

(Indifferent air)

Oh, how can I compete with her beauty?

The way she steals my man is pure cruelty

(Pure cruelty)

Oh, how can I compete with her beauty?

The way I poke and prod his heart is pure cruelty

(His heart is pure cruelty)

Oh, he’s falling for the girl that isn’t me

Oh, he’s falling for the me that isn’t me

 

You can’t win this game

All those girls share is a name

(Share is a name)

Don’t look so hurt

After all, you knew her first

(Knew her first)

But I’m the one

She was all just for fun

(She was all just for fun)

 

Oh, with her glowing eyes

She will be his demise

(Be his demise)

With her perfectly flowing hair

And her effortless indifferent air

(Indifferent air)

Oh, how can I compete with her beauty?

The way she steals my man is pure cruelty

(Pure cruelty)

Oh, how can I compete with her beauty?

The way I poke and prod his heart is pure cruelty

(His heart is pure cruelty)

Oh, he’s falling for the girl that isn’t me

Oh, he’s falling for the me that isn’t me

 

This gap between us, has become quite immense

She was the first defense

(She was the first defense)
