I think I might be a fortune teller
I read your face just like a letter
The funny thing about forever
Is it comes with a side of - never never
I cant buy into what you're selling
And no its not that I don't want it
Believe me I'd love to close my eyes, enjoy the ride
But you reek of indecision and I...
I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know

You're only gonna let me down
When it counts, you'll countdown
You're only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you'll burn out
You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
Right when I think we could be something
You'll go and let me down, let me down

I am too smart to let you in here
But I'm just dumb enough to linger
I wanna think that you'll be different
Smoking mirrors are so clever clever
I pretend that things aren't so bad
That what you say will actually happen
I've been dying to open my eyes
See you try instead of always leaving me out to dry

You're only gonna let me down
When it counts, you'll countdown
You're only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you'll burn out
You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
Right when I think we could be something
You'll go and let me down, let me down

I need you to be there when you say you're gonna be
I care too much and you'll care enough to leave
I want some place to rest my head without worrying
It's not fair, It's not fair, It's not fair, It's not fair
It's not fair to me, cause I know, I know

You're only gonna let me down
When it counts, you'll countdown
You're only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you'll burn out
You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
Right when I think we could be something
You'll go and let me down, let me down

You're only gonna let me down
When it counts, you'll countdown
You're only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you'll burn out
You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
Right when I think we could be something
You'll go and let me down, let me down
