Verse 1:

I keep on thinking about you.
Yes, I know it’s only a camp crush-
But you were my love.
I was so mesmerized by you,
The perfect you

Verse 2:

You were the type of guy I’ve always dreamed of.
Then the goodbyes changed me, and us.
I’d be in lalaland when I’d talk to you,
For hours on the phone
But then you changed my ways
And everyone keeps telling me

Chorus:

You aren’t worth it.
You aren’t perfect.
And now I really
See it this way.
We’re not meant to be.
No, we will never be
Like we were before

Verse 3:

I get so miserable.
I wish you could see the tears I’m crying out.
If you only knew
How much I thought I loved you
How you made me happy.

Verse 4:

But now I’m done.
I’m tired; I’m worn out from you.
You’re too selfish,
Too narcissistic
For me to even be in love with you.

Chorus:
You aren’t worth it.
You aren’t perfect.
And now I really
See it this way.
We’re not meant to be.
No, we will never be
Like we were before

Chorus 2:
We were once so happy together
Now I tear apart while you continue your own life
And I decided that we can never be.
No, I won’t. No, you won’t see us like we were before.

Bridge:
This heart is breaking.
Now I can’t take it anymore.
I say I’m done then you come back
And you make me stunned
For the good
For the bad
It’s nothing like you did before.

Chorus:

You aren’t worth it.
You aren’t perfect.
And now I really
See it this way.
We’re not meant to be.
No, we will never be
Like we were before

Chorus 2:

We were once so happy together
Now I tear apart while you continue your own life
And I decided that we can never be.
No, I won’t. No, you won’t see us like we were before

Ending Verse (5) :
This girl cannot take it.
You will see someday that
I’m better without you.
You’ll open your eyes
And see the past was the past.
Because we are nothing like we were before.
