  1. Long were the nights when
    My days once revolved around you
    Counting my footsteps
    Praying the floor won't fall through again
    And my mother accused me of losing my mind
    But I swore I was fine
    You paint me a blue sky
    And go back and turn it to rain
    And I lived in your chess game
    But you changed the rules every day
    Wondering which version of you I might get on the phone tonight
    Well, I stopped picking up and this song is to let you know why
    Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
    Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
    The girl in the dress, cried the whole way home
    I should've known
    Well, maybe it's me
    And my blind optimism to blame
    Or maybe it's you and your sick need
    To give love then take it away
    And you'll add my name to your long list of traitors
    Who don't understand
    And I'll look back and regret how I ignored when they said
    "Run as fast as you can"
    Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
    Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
    The girl in the dress, cried the whole way home
    Dear John, I see it all now, it was wrong
    Don't you think nineteen's too young
    To be played by your dark, twisted games when I loved you so?
    I should've known
    You are an expert at sorry and keeping the lines blurry
    Never impressed by me acing your tests
    All the girls that you've run dry have tired lifeless eyes
    'Cause you burned them out
    But I took your matches before fire could catch me
    So don't look now
    I'm shining like fireworks over your sad empty town
    Oh, oh
    Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
    Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
    The girl in the dress, cried the whole way home
    I see it all now that you're gone
    Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
    The girl in the dress wrote you a song
    You should've known
    You should've known
    Don't you think I was too young?
    You should've known
