You Only See

lyrics

Well all the days and all the nights are going by
Help for that never-ending wander in your eye
I tried to give you everything your heart desired
Why did you throw all of your hopes onto the pyre?

When the morning comes between us
Do you just see what you want to see?
'Cause you know I want to love you
But I just don't have the energy

So there's a burden in a love you could defend
Lo and behold you went and fucked it up again
High time for you to go and shake it out the door
I don't care where you go you can't stay here no more

When the morning comes between us
Do you just see what you want to see?
'Cause you know I want to hate you
But I just don't have the energy

You only see what you want to see
You only see what you want to see
You only see what you want to see

Well can you feel it in the beating of your heart?
Tell me your truth and I will take it all apart
So is it easier to move on down the line?
Hold everything you have, it's yours until it's mine

When the morning comes between us
Do you just see what you want to see
'Cause you know I want to love you
But I just don't have the energy

When the morning comes between us
Do you just see what you want to see
'Cause you know I want to hate you
But I just don't have the energy

You only see what you want to see
You only see what you want to see
You only see what you want to see
