It was just my mistake
Thinking you cared
It was just my mistake
Thinking you'd be there
That you'd be by my side
And that you wouldn't lie
My mistake

It was just my false hope
Thinking we'd last, yeah
It was just my false hope
Forgot all your pests
All those girls you denied
Smashed up hearts hung out to dry

I know it's wrong
Hanging on too long
I know it's wrong
Hanging on too long

But I beat 'em all
Hanging on too long

I was a fool for you
Right from the start, yeah
I was a fool for you
Hoping for a spark
For some kind of sign
That you would be mine


My heart was clutching
To one fair right
My head was pumping
It could put up a fight


And I need to move on
I'm hanging on too long
