lyrics

I thought you liked cocky assholes.
That's not my style, but I'll try it just for you.
And now you think I lack self-control,
But it was an act to get you in the sack.

And there's rejection,
And then there's failure,
And then there's blowing up in pieces in the sky,
No lie, I must have needed one more try.

I'm the good guy, I'm the good guy,
Though I tried my best I wasn't bad enough for you.

I lay my cards on the table,
I'm not prepared to change to suit you.
I offered you an ultimatum,
The harshest words I'd ever said to you.

And you can take it,
Or you can leave it,
And if you leave it then it's gone,
So long, it won't be coming back again.

I'm the good guy, I'm the good guy,
Though I tried my best I wasn't bad enough for you.

With lying from the outset,
You'd think I'd nailed it, your taste for pricks, but no.
No, no, no, no.
I didn't treat you wrong.

I still don't like the way you're feeling,
That wouldn't happen on my terms.
But now you're gone, and I'm the villain.
I want to show you that you're wrong.

You won't believe it,
Unless you see it.
But you won't look,
So that's it, OK, it's over, goodbye.

I'm the good guy, I'm the good guy,
Though I tried my best I wasn't bad enough for you.
