the good & the bad guy lyrics – my brightest diamond

sometimes when i tell the story of you
i make you out to be the bad guy
and though it’s true
sometimes you’re the bad guy
you’re still mine

sometimes when i paint the picture
it’s easier just to remember
the awful things you said
and what you chose to do with legitimate need
you made like a fool
you made like a fool but you’re still mine
and i want you
i want you
i do

why does it hurt more to recall
your good side, your good side
i always went to you for advice
you were a wise one, a wise one then
when i think about you in that time
it’s harder to hate you then

but sometimes i want to hate you as the bad guy
but i want you
i want you the good and the bad guy
the good and the bad guy
the good and the bad guy
the good and the bad guy
