lyrics

You find yourself alone,
No one there to protect you,
You thought that no one would know,
That little secret you hide.
But did you think that no one
Would ever find out what you did?
Well, I know what you hide,
And I know what’s inside you.
Just brought it up, just to bring you back down,
Everybody’s coming around to see the spectacle that became you and me.
Can you tell, can you tell me that everything, everything is so lovely?
Yet underneath, I know you’re ugly, deep underneath.
Underneath the moonlight,
Coming for you tonight,
And you’re so scared, so terribly unprepared.
Why even try looking for things that’ll never satisfy your mind?
‘Cause I know what’s inside you.
Just brought it up, just to bring you back down,
Everybody’s coming around to see the spectacle that became you and me.
Can you tell, can you tell me that everything, everything is so lovely?
Yet underneath, I know you’re ugly, deep underneath.
How can you tell me that everything, everything is so lovely?
Yet underneath, I know you’re ugly, deep underneath.
Why even try looking for things that’ll never satisfy your mind?
‘Cause I know what’s inside you.
Just brought it up, just to bring you back down.
I never wanted to change those broken things inside you,
Always having to shake another piece of my pride.
Isn’t it enough to want the simple things inside you?
Always having to take the easy way out.
I just brought it up, just to bring you back down,
Everybody’s coming around to see the spectacle that became you and me.
Can you tell, can you tell me
That everything, everything is so lovely, yet underneath,
I know you’re ugly, deep underneath.
How can you tell me,
That everything, everything is so lovely, yet underneath,
I know you’re ugly, deep underneath.
