lyrics

Instrument

Our love had the perfect melody
a beautiful song stuck on repeat
you twisted my words to match the beat
But I didn’t see, see, oh

Thought you were gonna be the one to keep me safe, yeah
but I never really knew the price I’d have to pay, yeah
you took all I had for your own gain
this ain’t a love song, it’s just your game

I don’t wanna be your instrument
No, I’m not meant for this
oh so stop pretending you’re innocent
you’re never gonna play me again

ohhh  ohhh ohhh
i’m not your instrument
ohhh ohhh oo
you’ll never play me again

And now that you’re gone I’m finally free
And I’m not gonna let you pull the strings
i’m using the voice you tried to keep
away from me, me, oh

And I see all the ways you tried to push me so low
but I’m done with that n babe i’m goin solo
you took all I had for your own gain
I’m through with love songs and stupid games

I don’t wanna be your instrument
No, I’m not meant for this
oh so stop pretending you’re innocent
you’re never gonna play me again

ohhh  ohhh ohhh
i’m not your instrument
ohhh ohhh oo
you’ll never play me again

And you can fool
Everybody else
But you know that deep down you can't fool yourself

I'm walking out
You're on your own
And You can play with yourself all alone
