Lyrics

I'm nodding on the knowledge,
That I have been burned,
That I'm learning things that I should've already learned,
Everyone I already knew, wasn't kind and coy,
I was with a girl, but it felt like I was with a boy,

I can't even remember, if we were lovers, or if I just wanted to,
But I held her in my arms,
I held her in my arms,
I held her in my arms but it wasn't you

I will not kill, the one thing that I love,
In this world of wreckage, I look above,
I said help me lord, help me understand,
What it means to be a boy, what it means to be a man

I can't even remember, if we were lovers, or if I just wanted to,
But I held her in my arms, I held her in my arms,
I held her in my arms but it wasn't you,

I'm nodding on the knowledge that I have been burned,
That I'm learning things that I should've already learned
Everyone I ever knew, wasn't kind and coy,
I was with a girl, but it felt like I was with a boy,

I can't even remember, if we we're lovers, or if I just wanted to,
But I held her in my arms,
I held her in my arms,
I held her in my arms but it wasn't you

I can't even remember, if we we're lovers, or if I just wanted to,
But I held her in my arms,
I held her in my arms,
I held her in my arms but it wasn't you
