Rumors

I made it my mission day in and day out
to seek out and shoot down the rumors about you

I thought you were brilliant, a god on a stage
counting, tripping on the compliments you wanted me to

You think you can just let me go, pick me up
well I’ve been waiting around but I’m slipping

You count on me to defend you and I have
but none of the knives they’re throwing are missing

You know I’ve always known the rumors about you
I was blinded so I fell and wasted all that worthless time

The rumors circle round even through my closed door
but I never listened and I told them how you were when you were mine

I know you still listen to the rumors about me
but sweetheart you better take a look at yourself

Now the light they shine on you is glaring neon
and all the words you gave me were written by someone else

I tried so many times to prove them wrong
they said you had jars of people to shuffle through

Believing was beautiful just for a moment
till I choked on the rumors I thought could never be true

Your eyes in my dreams were strobe lights
so I shut out the world and spent melodies on you

Until I woke up to gravel kissing my cheek
instead of your perfect lies drenching me in something true

You know I’ve always known the rumors about you
I was blinded so I fell and wasted all that worthless time

The rumors circle round even through my closed door
but I never listened and I told them how you were when you were mine

I know you still listen to the rumors about me
but sweetheart you better take a look at yourself

Now the light they shine on you is glaring neon
and all the words you gave me were written by someone else
