Something's Gotta Give

Album: Future Hearts (2015)
  • I woke up in a stranger's bed
    With pins and needles in my head
    And the clock ticking off the wall
    Oh, yeah, oh, yeah

    I don't even know myself
    I wish I could be someone else
    But I don't have a clue at all
    Oh, yeah

    I'm sinking
    You're wading
    I'm thinking something's gotta give

    Oh
    Wake me up
    Say enough is enough
    I'm dying to live
    Something's gotta give (Oh)
    Pull me out
    Of this sinking town
    I'm dying to live
    Something's gotta give

    Maybe I'm a fucking waste
    Filling up the empty space
    I've been here way too long
    Oh, yeah, oh, yeah

    I'm feeling like a nervous wreck
    Living on my last paycheck
    I'm a cliché in a song
    And everybody's singing along

    I'm sinking
    You're wading
    I'm thinking something's gotta give

    Oh
    Wake me up
    Say enough is enough
    I'm dying to live
    Something's gotta give
    Oh
    Pull me out
    Of this sinking town
    I'm dying to live
    Something's gotta give

    Someone please come pull me out
    From the shadow of my doubt
    Wake me up
    I'm falling

    Oh
    Wake me up
    Say enough is enough
    I'm dying to live
    Something's gotta give (Oh)
    Pull me out
    Of this sinking town
    I'm dying to live (Dying to live)
    Something's gotta give

    I'm sinking (I'm sinking)
    You're wading (You're wading)
    I'm thinking something's gotta give

    (Oh)
    Pull me out
    Of this sinking town
    I'm dying to live (Dying to live)
