"Dear John" Lyrics

4.6 / 5
Song updated, review now!
Long were the nights when my days once revolved around you
Counting my footsteps, praying the floor won't fall through...again
My mother accused me of losing my mind
But I swore...I was fine

You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain
And I lived in your chess game, but you changed the rules every day
Wondering which version of you I might get on the phone...tonight
Well, I stopped picking up and this song is to let you know why

Dear John,
I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress cried the whole...way...home
I shoulda known

Well, maybe it's me and my blind optimism to blame
Or maybe it's you and your sick need to give love, then take it away
And you'll add my name to your long list of traitors who don't...understand
And I'll look back in regret
Oh, I ignored when they said, "Run as fast as you can"

Dear John,
I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress cried the whole...way...home

Dear John,
I see it all now, it was wrong
Don't you think nineteen's too young to be played
By your dark twisted games when I loved you so?
I shoulda known

You are an expert at "Sorry" and keeping lines blurry
And never impressed by me acing your tests
All the girls that you run dry have tired, lifeless eyes
'Cause you burned them out

But I took your matches before fire could catch me, so don't look now
I'm shining like fireworks over your sad, empty town
Oh-oh-oh-ohh...

Dear John,
I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress cried the whole...way...home

I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress wrote you a song

You shoulda known
You shoulda known

Don't you think I was too young?
You shoulda known
