lyrics

I'm sorry that this took so long
I've never been good at saying I've done wrong
To lick my wounds off and run for cover
Tell the world I'm a jilted lover
Well I know how to play that song
Yeah that one rolls right off my tongue

But on the wrong side now of this vendetta
I like victimhood much better
For stories of the underdog
Please reference my back catalogue
I'm out of date and I'm overdue
And I'm way too late to tell you
That you deserve the world
You deserve to be somebody's world
You deserve the world
You deserve to be somebody's world

You wrote a script and you built me a pedestal
It doesn't fit and you know that it never will
So give it up girl, before you tear yourself apart
You're tied in knots and you're bent in double for me
Well I'm not worth the trouble honey
Give it up girl, cos your good heart is wasted on me

It's wasted on me

And it wasn't nothing that I planned
I don't even know if you'd want to understand
To sweep in town yeah and act the charmer
Your nightmare in shining armour
Well that isn't who I am
Never has been who I am

I'm on the wrong side now of this vendetta
And I like victimhood much better
For stories of the underdog
Please reference my back catalogue
I'm out of date and I'm overdue
And I'm way too late to tell you
That you deserve the world
You deserve to be somebody's world
You deserve the world
Girl, you're gonna be somebody's world

(Chorus)

That I made you think I was all and more
That you'd spent your life looking for
When I knew that I was never gonna stay
And I hope you know now that you deserve
More than somebody with the nerve
To turn around at the end of it and say

"You wrote a script and you built me a pedestal
It doesn't fit and you know that it never will"
And act like you're the one who tore this all apart
Tell you you're better off without me
In a song I made all about me
Making out like I never even played a part
Tied in knots, you were bent in double for me
Well I weren't worth the trouble honey
Take my word for it: your good heart is wasted on me
And always will be
