[Verse 1]
I've seen you with the lights off
I've seen you and you think you love me
I've seen you with your hat off
I'm dreaming of a time you knew me


[Pre-Hook]
So baby, is it all you've got?
Tell me if you got some more

I'm thinking of some time off, off
I'm dreaming of a time that you knew me


[Hook 1]
Some things never seem to fucking work

[Verse 3]
Remember when you kissed me (kissed me)
At Jimmy John's when I was 17

Convinced myself you were the shit (were the shit)
Convinced myself you loved me


[Pre-Hook]
So baby, is that all you've got?
Tell me if you got some more-ore
I'm thinking of some time off, off
I'm dreaming of a time that you knew me

[Hook 2]
So maybe then we're better off
So maybe if it's all you wanted
Leave me alone
Leave me alone
So maybe then we're better off
So maybe if it's all you wanted it
Leave me alone
Leave me alone


[Verse 5]
Remember when you missed me (missed me)
We'd accidentally meet purposely
Convinced that we were meant to be (meant to be)
Convinced myself you loved me


[Pre-Hook]
So baby, is it all you've got?
Tell me if you got some more
I'm thinking of some time off (time off, off)
I'm dreaming of a time that you knew me

[Hook 2]

[Spoken Word Interlude - Dev Haynes]
So tell me, is it real love or some kind of mistake
That we made together that we couldn't anticipate?
And my attraction to you made all that much worse
Desire for something maybe
Along with a hatred of myself
Not wanting to end up alone
So the night I saw you
I could pretend I thought you were beautiful
And that's all I ever really saw
But the truth is as much as I hate it, you were a bore
So I try and deny it, although I try to fight it
As I brought your ride home on the 95 bus
Never thought down the line
That us would eventually become an us
So to the others, looking from the outside in
So now I'm calling out
For a way to give myself in
Remember when you kissed me, when I was seventeen
I thought to myself that you were the shit
That you loved me

[Hook 2]
