(Verse 1)
So there’s this guy, he’s got a bad reputation.
So here’s the lie; he’s got everyone believing.
So there’s this girl, she’s got a bad situation.
So here’s the truth; she don’t care if she’s deceiving.
Cuz honestly, the only thing, that she can see, is him.

(Verse 2)
So there’s these rumors, that keep showing up.
So here’s to the assumers, she’s not walking away.
Cuz there’s these butterflies, that keep flowing up.
So here’s to the believers, she don’t care what you say.
Cuz honestly, the only thing, that she wants, is him.

(Chorus)
You say I’m blind to everything.
So say I’m wrong; blame it all on me.
In reality, you don’t know anything.
You’re looking from the outside, and you only see,
The red flags, the stop signs, the bad side.
So say I’m wrong, blame it all on me.
In reality, you don’t see it from the inside.
And honestly, the only thing I can see, is him.

(Verse 3)
So there’s this fling; he’s got something going on.
So here’s the thing, he’s got it going on with her.
So there’s this feeling; she’s got something going strong.
So here’s the truth, she’s got it going on for sure.
But honestly, the only thing, that she can see, is him.

(Verse 4)
So there’s these people, that keep talking s***.
So here’s to being simple; she’s not listening to them.
Cuz there’s these reasons, that keep believing s***.
So here’s to the people; she don’t care if it’s in sin.
Cuz honestly, the only thing, that she wants, is him.

(Repeat Chorus x2)
You say I’m blind to everything.
So say I’m wrong; blame it all on me.
In reality, you don’t know anything.
You’re looking from the outside, and you only see,
The red flags, the stop signs, the bad side.
So say I’m wrong, blame it all on me.
In reality, you don’t see it from the inside.
And honestly, the only thing I can see, is….
You say I’m blind to everything.
So say I’m wrong; blame it all on me.
In reality, you don’t know anything.
You’re looking from the outside, and you only see,
The red flags, the stop signs, the bad side.
So say I’m wrong, blame it all on me.
In reality, you don’t see it from the inside.
And honestly, the only thing I can see, is him.

(Bridge)
So he’s just gotta know, that she don’t want him to go.
She wants him to stay; so tell her it’ll be okay.
He better not let her wait, cuz he might be too late.
So she’s just gotta know, if he don’t want her to go.
Cuz she’s hoping that this time…
All the magic will fall perfectly into place,
And there won’t be room for waiting in line.
So don’t forget, the only thing, he’s gotta do, to cut to the chase,
Is tell her, “I want you too…”

(Repeat Chorus x2)
You say I’m blind to everything.

In reality, you don’t know anything.
You’re looking from the outside, and you only see,
The red flags, the stop signs, the bad side.
So say I’m wrong, blame it all on me.
In reality, you don’t see it from the inside.
And honestly, the only thing I can see, is….
You say I’m blind to everything.
So say I’m wrong; blame it all on me.
In reality, you don’t know anything.
You’re looking from the outside, and you only see,
The red flags, the stop signs, the bad side.
So say I’m wrong, blame it all on me.
In reality, you don’t see it from the inside.
And honestly, the only thing I can see, is him.

Ooh, it’s the only thing, Babe.
It’s the only thing…
