  • Close enough to start a war
    All that I have is on the floor
    God only knows what we're fighting for
    All that I say, you always say more

    I can't keep up with your turning tables
    Under your thumb, I can't breathe

    So I won't let you close enough to hurt me
    No, I won't ask you, you to just desert me
    I can't give you, what you think you gave me
    It's time to say goodbye to turning tables
    To turning tables

    Under haunted skies I see you
    Where love is lost, your ghost is found
    I braved a hundred storms to leave you
    As hard as you try, no I will never be knocked down

    I can't keep up with your turning tables
    Under your thumb, I can't breathe

    So I won't let you close enough to hurt me, no
    I won't ask you, you to just desert me
    I can't give you, what you think you gave me
    It's time to say goodbye to turning tables
    Turning tables

    Next time I'll be braver
    I'll be my own savior
    When the thunder calls for me
    Next time I'll be braver
    I'll be my own savior
    Standing on my own two feet

    I won't let you close enough to hurt me, no
    I won't ask you, you to just desert me
    I can't give you, what you think you gave me
    It's time to say goodbye to turning tables
    To turning tables
    Turning tables, yeah
    Turning oh
