Right from the start, I knew you were the king of 2nd chances Now that it’s done, heavy is the head that wears that crown But it’s just the same old story, over again You never learned how to be genuine Time after time, I wish I knew I couldn’t put my faith in you Say what you mean I don’t believe anything that you say Say what you mean We both know you’re not going to change anyway Say what you mean I won’t play into your games Say what you mean I don’t believe anything that you say I was a fool, caught up in your web made of white lies You’re gonna need some help when you stumble your way out of the dark But it’s just the same old story, over again You never learned how to be genuine Time after time, I wish I knew I couldn’t put my faith in you Say what you mean I don’t believe anything that you say Say what you mean We both know you’re not going to change anyway Say what you mean I won’t play into your games Say what you mean I don’t believe anything that you say Confess to me Say that you’re looking for best in me But, you keep testing me And all I really need is the missing piece I see that you try, you’ve got a lot of work to do I cannot believe I put all of my faith in you Say what you mean I don’t believe anything that you say Say what you mean We both know you’re not going to change anyway Say what you mean I won’t play into your games Say what you mean I don’t believe anything that you say Say what you mean Say what you mean Say what you mean Anything that you say (repeat)

Romeo 03:48
Romeo Where did you go, after the show? We were going to hang out Romeo With your tilted smile Won’t you stay a while? There’s so much more that I wanna know Hey Romeo! And if you should walk away from me And all the thoughts you’re feeling Don’t be ashamed of the unknown Hey Romeo! Oh! Romeo doesn’t know how to love But he’s everything I’m dreaming of Just stay here, with no fear My Romeo! My Romeo! Oh! Oh, my Romeo Has got a wandering eye How I wish to be a fly On his bedroom walls Hey Romeo! Why won’t you admit, that you’re afraid to commit? You run to where you are called (You are called x4) And if you should walk away from me And all the thoughts you’re feeling Don’t be ashamed of the unknown Hey Romeo! Oh! Romeo doesn’t know how to love But he’s everything I’m dreaming of Just stay here, with no fear My Romeo! My Romeo! Oh! Why can’t you tell it straight to me? I can understand You’re too busy caught up, trying to prove that you’re a man R-O-M-E-O (x3) My Romeo! My Romeo! Oh! R-O-M-E-O (x3) My Romeo! My Romeo! Oh! Romeo doesn’t know how to love But he’s everything I’m dreaming of Just stay here, with no fear My Romeo! My Romeo! Oh! Romeo’s gotta stick to the plan He’s too busy tryna be a man Just stay here, with no fear My Romeo! My Romeo! Oh! R-O-M-E-O (x3), My, my, my Romeo! (x3) My Romeo! My Romeo! Oh! R-O-M-E-O (x3), My, my, my Romeo! (x3) My Romeo! My Romeo! Oh!

I make my bed with silver linings I know the day, it could get worse Try to treat the truth like medicine, yeah Doesn’t help if it don’t hurt
 There’s always gonna be ups I’m always gonna let you down I can put on my brave face Parade it around town I’ve been a cynic, a critic, an outright non-believer When the message relayed couldn’t be any clearer That I’m... Never gonna be tough enough Not gonna win that fight Bite my tongue and hold it in Swallow my pride There’ll never come a day Never gonna hear me say I’m not okay

My mom calls, I can’t explain it Feels like I’m circling the drain
The sun is out but I can’t enjoy Because I know soon will come rain

There’s always gonna be ups I’m always gonna let you down I can put on my brave face Parade it around town I’ve been a cynic, a critic, an outright non-believer When the message relayed couldn’t be any clearer That I’m... Never gonna be tough enough Not gonna win that fight Bite my tongue and hold it in Swallow my pride There’ll never come a day Never gonna hear me say I’m not okay I lost time pretending everything’s okay Ignoring the signs that point the other way Spent so many years, trying to find that silver lining But now it seems that I’m finding Seems that I’m finding
 Never gonna be tough enough Not gonna win that fight Bite my tongue and hold it in Swallow my pride There’ll never come a day Never gonna hear me say I’m not okay Never gonna be tough enough Not gonna win that fight Bite my tongue and hold it in Swallow my pride There’ll never come a day Never gonna hear me say I’m not okay
