Devonté Hynes – Palo Alto Lyrics:
Don’t think that we were beautiful
Don’t think that I’m your friend
I’ll be the first one to tell you a lie

Wait until I’m over you, oh
Waiting for a shot in the dark
Nothing that it is to you, to you

Once I told you about my other friends
You left me be alone
I’ll be the first one to tell you a lie

Wait until I’m over you, oh
Waiting for a shot in the dark
Nothing that it is to you, to you

Wait until I’m over you, oh
Waiting for a shot in the dark
Nothing that it is to you, to you.
