High School Sweetheart
Incognito Written By paper HEART

I know you were looking at me for a long time
Getting my movements and gestures in your mind
You studied me like you would study a mid-term exam
Just so you can tell me exactly who I am
Back then I would wear my feelings on my sleeve
I was opened and didn't have to hide or bleed
You were the opposite of everything I was
But eventually we somehow fell in love.

You knew me better than anyone has before
You said everything I wanted to hear and more
Maybe I wanted you to get inside
Maybe I wanted you to at least try.

You were my high school sweetheart
But everything about you wasn't that sweet
You were someone that got past my sky-high wall
And somehow got over me.

I know we were great together but there was more
My friends kept whispering saying words like cheat and whore
I tried not to listen I tried not to let it get to me
I guess I'm not that good at pretending I guess I had to see
Back then I would wear my feelings on my sleeve
I was opened and didn't have to hide or bleed
You were the opposite of everything I was
But eventually we somehow fell in love.

You knew me better than anyone has before
You said everything I wanted to hear and more
Maybe I wanted you to get inside
Maybe I wanted you to at least try.

You were my high school sweetheart
But everything about you wasn't that sweet
You were someone that got past my sky-high wall
And somehow got over me.

I know you were looking at me for a long time
Getting my movements and gestures in your mind
You studied me like you would study a mid-term exam
Just so you can tell me exactly who I am
Back then I would wear my feelings on my sleeve
I was opened and didn't have to hide or bleed
You were the opposite of everything I was
But eventually we somehow fell in love.
