Red – Daniel Merriweather!

And I’m alright,
standing in the streetlights here.
Is this meant for me,
my time on the outside is over.

And we don’t know how you’re spending all of your days,
knowing that love isn’t here.
You see the pictures but you don’t know their names,
cause love isn’t here

And I can’t do this by myself,
all of these problems, they’re all in your head.
And I can’t be somebody else,
you took something perfect and painted it red.

No sympathy,
when shouting out is all you know.
Behind your lies,
I can see the secrets you don’t show.

No we don’t know how you’re spending all of your days,
knowing that love isn’t here.
You see the pictures but you don’t know their names,
’cause love isn’t here.

And I can’t do this by myself,
all of these problems, they’re all in your head.
And I can’t be somebody else,
you took something perfect and painted it red,
when you took something perfect and painted it red.

You take the best things from me,
then everything gets empty,
that’s not a world that I need.
Ooh, you take the best things from me,
then everything gets empty,
that’s not a world that I need.

And I can’t do this by myself,
all of these problems, they’re all in your head.
And I can’t be somebody else,
you took something perfect and painted it red.

When you took something perfect and painted it red,
you took something perfect and painted it red.
