Tonight

If you look at the stars
Outside they’re shining so bright,
It’s more than you deserve.
It’s 11:11, so make a wish,
You already know I wished for you.

You’re holding my hand
In yours,
Though I can’t even understand why.
When’s the last time you were there
For me?

Refrain:
[So] Say those three godd*** words that break my heart in two,
Kiss me with that poison, like you always do.
Hold me in your broken promises, and all of your lies,
Or tell me that you really care
Tonight.

I still have that
Postcard, back from when
We were thirteen,
Back when your handwriting
Was messy, back when you
Used to write to me.

Remember all of those New
Years promises that we made?
We were gonna stay the same,
But you said you were gonna change
For me

Refrain:
But you said those three godd*** words that broke my heart in two,
And you kissed me with that poison, like you always do.
And you held me in your broken promises, and all of your lies,
And you never told me that you really cared
…Tonight.

Last Verse:
And you said those three godd*** words that broke my heart in two,
And you killed me with your poison, like you like to do,
And you held me in your broken promises, and all of your lies,
And you never told me that you really cared
