I painted a picture of you in my mind on a brand new white canvas.
I admired my work and I fell in love.
I stood by it for days, and for weeks, and for months.

Then you walked in the room, set my picture on fire (Are you ready to pay for what you did?)
And I looked in dismay at the person I painted (Are you ready to pay? 'cause I can't forgive)
"Oh no this can't be you, couldn't've acted that way," I screamed as my masterpiece went up in flames.

I broke down and the ashes spilled on the ground.
I looked up at a stranger I thought I had known.
Does this mean that I never loved you?
Does this mean that I never even knew you at all?

I painted a picture of you in my mind (I drew you like I thought you should be)
And I left it in black and white. (I drew you so perfectly)
I kept out the details that I didn't like.
And I thought (I thought) I thought it was perfect.

And I knew it was wrong but I painted away (Are you ready to pay for what you did?)
Thought that I could convince myself in this way (Are you ready to pay? 'cause I can't forgive)

All the things I denied, yet I knew deep inside it's so much easier to just lie. So I lied!

We stand two feet apart like two strangers unknown. We don't speak the same language. Are you listening at all?
And that look in your eyes never did feel like home, but I made it mine. I made it my own.
And I think it'd be nice if we just stayed away from each other right now, at least just for today.
It's so easy to miss you, you're all that I know 'cause I made you mine... I made you my own!

I broke down as the ashes spilled on the ground.
I looked up at a stranger I thought I had known.
Does this mean that I never loved you?
Does this mean that I never knew you?
Does this mean that I'll never even know you at all-all-all?

So we start, start talking again
Now that we have a new place to begin.
And as I'm, (And as I'm)
I'm listening, (I'm listening)
I start to paint, (I start to paint)
Paint you again. (Paint you again)

Does this mean that I never loved you?
Does this mean that I never knew you?
Does this mean that I'll never even know you at all-all-aaallll?
