sworn to secrecy
knew it wouldn’t happen for me
i fend off other people
who try to get in, who try to see

learned from my mistakes,
or at least think i have
underestimated
los angeles
underestimated
what i’d see in you

i’m drunk again
i should be embarrassed
but you embrace it
don’t make me feel nervous
i wanted to be
close to you

let you in
i should be so helpless
but you changed me
romantic again
i’ve been jaded
learned to think with consequences

guess i was waiting on u
i’ve been waiting my whole life
but i guess i didn’t know what was in front of me
didn’t know what i couldn’t see
i just wish i could have it for me
