Your friends told me that I was theirs,
I lost my heart inside your hairs,
Every single inch of me,
Was lost deep inside that version of me,
I told you, I told you, that I want you (yeah)
I need you, I need you, right now by my bed (yeah)
And I’m not afraid to say it to the world,
That I want you, I need you, I have to have you right now!
Screaming deep inside my lair,
I feel every inch inside of there,
And every day that I want your hair,
I lose my soul to the you that wasn’t there,
I lost it all, I lost it all, I lost it without you,
I told myself, I told myself, that I would be here for you,
Everyone now looks at me,
They see a darker side of me,
Now, I feel like they can open any door we closed behind us,
They have the power, they have the power, they have the skeleton key,
I lost my mind, I lost my mind, to you and I lost it just to me,
Oh-oh, I told myself, I told myself, that you were here for me,
I lied to myself, I lied to myself, that I would be there by your side,
And if it was any different, I would want you on my ride,
Ride, I need you, I want you, I have to have you right now!
Your friends told me that I used you,
They said I gave up on what mattered,
They told me I was a liar, someone hiding in the darkness,
They gave me, they gave me, the light to restore your city,
They did to me, they did to me, a little bit of (Uh)
I told you, I told you, that they used me, and I used you,
Your friends told me, your friends told me,
That I was the best thing in their city,
And now I’m giving up, I’m free, I lied to you,
And you told me that I gave a fuck about you,
Every time I walk in the city, I lose you,
Every time I fly by the city, I see you,
Every time I try to show pity, I lose you,
Every time I try to go for you,
I Lose You . . .
"Every time I walk in the city, I lose you," - showing how you can lose the girl of your dreams by just going for a walk in the city. (Two meanings: you lose her in the crowd) - (Or you lose her because you are no longer interested)
"Every time I try to for you, I lose you . . ." - No matter how hard he tries, he will never be able to keep her. As she will always be on his mind, but is always going to be afraid of losing her.
"Every time I try to show pity, I lose you," - No matter what he does, showing pity to her does not make things change. Even when he tries to be different, nothing works for him.
"And you told me I gave a fuck about you," - Saying how she thinks she knows him more than he knows himself.
"And I'm giving up, I'm free, I lied to you," - Saying what she wants to hear, as he believes that she isn't interested in him. But the fact she's on his mind all the time makes him see his own doubts. He lied to her by saying that he loved her, and all the freedom he wants is now given to him by not thinking about her.
"I told you, that they used me, and I used you," - How he used her for his own gains, but her friends were doing the same to him behind her back. She had no idea that he had been influenced by peer pressure, from her friends.
"Your friends told me that I used you," admitting a truth that isn't actually 100% true, and this shows how he believes that her friends are more trust worthy than he & she is.
"Now I feel they can open any door we closed behind us," - How he sees that her friends can blackmail him, and use him for more of their own gains. He is being abused, and the fact they can now pull strings, and open the doors that he & the girl closed behind them is scary. They no longer feel any secrecy, no privacy whatsoever.
