Got Me Wrong

  • Yeah, it goes away
    All of this and more of nothing in my life
    No color clay
    Individuality not safe
    As of now I bet you got me wrong
    So unsure you run from something strong
    I can't let go

    Threadbare tapestry unwinding slow
    Feel a tortured brain
    Show your belly like you want me to
    As of now I bet you got me wrong
    So unsure you run from something strong
    I haven't felt like this in so long
    Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love

    That don't last forever
    Something's gotta turn out right
    You sugar taste
    Sweetness doesn't often touch my face
    Stay if you please
    You may not be here when I leave

    As of now I bet you got me wrong
    So unsure we reach for something strong
    I haven't felt like this in so long
    Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love
    Strong, I haven't felt like this in so long
    Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love

    That don't last forever
    Something's gotta turn out right Writer/s: JERRY CANTRELL
