Set It Off Plastic Promises

“Just give me a chance,”

She said as I packed my things,

But I already did 4 times, don’t you remember?

“I won’t blow it again,”

She said with her fingers crossed,

But she forgot about the mirror behind her.

I’m done with plastic promises.

Please don’t tell me that we’re fine,

I got too much on my mind,

Isn’t this too plain to see? Maybe.

‘Cause we’ve lost too much to gain,

We were dancing in the rain,

Tell me what am I to do,

With a double dose of you?

A dose of you.

Her lips are the gun,

And her tongue are the bullets,

She could save a life,

But she took mine away instead.

Oh she did,

And we gave it our all,

So don’t call me a quitter.

No.

And I swear I’ve tried too many times before but,

I’m done with plastic promises.

Please don’t tell me that we’re fine,

I got too much on my mind,

Isn’t this too plain to see? Maybe.

‘Cause we’ve lost too much to gain,

We were dancing in the rain,

Tell me what am I to do

With a double dose of,

With a double dose of you?

Don’t try to defy or even make an attempt,

My blinders are off and I am runnin’ again from you,

Am I OK? Am I OK? I know I’ll be OK again.

Are you ready?

So here we go, I know,

You’d kill for everything to stay the same,

In vain, we had to go our separate ways,

When you proved to me that you would never change,

I finally woke up and exclaimed,

That I’m done with these plastic promises.

Please don’t tell me that we’re fine,

‘Cause we’re not

I got too much on my mind,

Isn’t this too plain to see? Maybe.

‘Cause we’ve lost too much to gain,

We were dancing in the rain,

Tell me what am I to do,

With a double dose of

With a double dose of you?
