lyrics

I’ve always had a warped perspective about love
But I’ve loved you since the first time that we kissed
and it really fucks me up
Because the last time that I fell in love this fast
It didn’t last oh no It really didn’t last

And I could see myself with you in 20 years
If I thought I’d live that long
Yeah I could see myself with you in 20 years
But the voices in my head all start singing the same song

They’re singing
You’re not good enough
You’re not good enough
You’ll only disappoint her
Like you do to everyone

You’re not good enough
You’re not good enough
So quick before you hurt her
Girl you’d better start to run
But I won't run

I spent most of yesterday inside your room
Being stoned out of my mind and playing games
And trying not to cry
Cuz I'm a bit over-emotional these days
But you held my as I cried into your chest
And you didn't run away

And I don't think that I deserve a love like that
Cuz I'm broken and I don't know how to change
Yeah I don't think that I deserve a love like that
And the voices in my head will be happy to explain

They tell me
You’re not good enough
You’re not good enough
You’ll only disappoint her
Like you do to everyone

You’re not good enough
You’re not good enough
So quick before you hurt her
Girl you’d better start to run
But I won't run

Maybe someday I'll believe it when you say
I'm a good person and I deserve to be happy
But not right now
I've barely started to undo the damage done
But I've learned that when I'm scared I don't always have to run

And your love’s started to feel like home to me
Like I belong here lying next to you
Yeah your love’s started to feel like home to me
But the voices in my head are there no matter what I do

Telling me
You’re not good enough
You’re not good enough
You’ll only disappoint her
Like you do to everyone

You’re not good enough
You’re not good enough
So quick before you hurt her
Girl you’d better start to run
But I won't run

I’ve always had a warped perspective about love
But I loved you
