You may not recall the moment that you asked me
But your invitation was clear
You'll pretend you've never met me but it's far too late
Now I'm here, yeah

'Cause I'm the one who knows what scares you
I'm the one who loves you best
I'm the thirteenth at the table
I'm the uninvited guest

I'm the Banquo at your banquet
I'm the cuckoo in your nest
I'm your fifteen stone first-footer
I'm the uninvited guest, yeah

I was there when you said insincere I love you's
To a woman that wasn't your wife
And I fronted you the money that you ran away and blew
On the biggest regret of your life

'Cause I'm the one who knows what scares you
I'm the who loves you best
I'm the thirteenth at the table
I'm the uninvited guest

I'm the Banquo at your banquet
I'm the cuckoo in your nest
I'm your New Year's resolution
I'm the uninvited guest

I'm the face you hoped you'd never see
But always knew you would
I'm the one thing you knew you shouldn't do
But did because you could

I'm the evil in your bloodstream
I'm the rash upon your skin
And you made a big mistake, alright
The day you let me in

And you can fly to the other side of the world
You know you'll only find
I've reserved the seat behind you
We can talk about old times

'Cause I'm the one who knows what scares you
I'm the who loves you best
I'm the thirteenth at the table
I'm the uninvited guest

I'm the Banquo at your banquet
I'm the cuckoo in your nest
I'm your fifteen stone first-footer
I'm the uninvited guest, let me in, hey
I'm your New Year's resolution
I'm the uninvited guest, oh
