You Got the Best of Me

Obviously, there is something that no one else can see.
Undoubtedly, there is something hidden beneath.
All those vulnerable girls are just waiting for you to sweep them off of their feet
But I refuse to fall for you, because I know all about your greed.

Unknown to others, I was trapped in you’re misery
And I wish it wouldn’t have been, yet you got the best of me.
I wish I woulda been stronger
I wish I woulda turned you away
I wish it wouldn’t have been longer
than it needed to be.
But you got the best of me.

Those dark blue eyes, that wind blown brown hair,
You have that certain something that makes those girls stare.
You deceive them with that provocative gaze,
That goes deep into their soul that they just can’t turn away.
You can’t mislead me because I know for a fact that you don’t believe me

And that’s what makes me different in this chaotic world,
I’ve grown up, I am not a little girl… anymore.
I’ll prove it to you no matter how long it takes.
That I will shine through, through all of your mistakes.

Unknown to others, I was trapped in you’re misery
And I wish it wouldn’t have been, yet you got the best of me.
I wish I woulda been stronger
I wish I woulda turned you away
I wish it wouldn’t have been longer
than it needed to be.
But you got the best of me.


Your mind’s like a pandemonium, like the Cirque de Soleil.
I don’t know how but you manage to have my heart spinning around and around all day.
But I can’t. I just can’t give into you’re temptation.
But… with you looking at me like that, you’re making me impatient.
Your eyes tell the truth but the words that are coming out of your mouth
Are two different things and my hearts dropping south.
And in a split second you think of what you just said, you bite your tongue, as if cutting a thread
You say you love me and that you’d never hurt me.
And I spit back, “ Why should I believe you? When you can’t even see
How much you have already hurt me?”
And as soon as I’m out of breath, you seize me in your benevolent embrace
And I can’t feel the pain I felt from before, not even the slightest trace.
You were lucky this time, you got the best of me.
