For a Pessimist, I'm Pretty Optimistic - Paramore

Just talk yourself up
And tear yourself down
You've hit your one wall
Now find a way around
Well, what's the problem?
You've got a lot of nerve

So what did you think I would say?
No, you can't run away
No, you can't run away
So what did you think I would say?
No, you can't run away
No, you can't run away
You wouldn't

I never wanted to say this
You never wanted to stay
I put my faith in you
So much faith
And then you just threw it away
You threw it away

I'm not so na?ve
My sorry eyes can see
The way you fight shy
Of almost everything
Well, if you give up
You'll get what you deserve

So what did you think I would say?
No, you can't run away
No, you can't run away
So what did you think I would say?
No, you can't run away
No, you can't run away
You wouldn't

I never wanted to say this
You never wanted to stay
I put my faith in you
So much faith
And then you just threw it away
You threw it away

You were finished long before
We had even seen the start
Why don't you stand up
Be a man about it?
Fight with your bare hands about it now

I never wanted to say this
(Say this)
You never wanted to stay
Well, did you?
I put my faith in you
So much faith
And then you just threw it away

I never wanted to say this
You never wanted to stay
And I put my faith in you
So much faith
And then you just threw it away
