  • Oh

    Suns coming up blazing red
    Setting on fire everything you said
    To me last night it's breaking my heart
    Don't know why you want to tear me apart

    Tried so hard to turn the other cheek
    That my head's spinning around like a tumbleweed
    Ain't ever gonna be another brand new start

    What am I supposed to do
    When I wanna scream every time I look at you
    I ain't safe and I ain't sound
    Might as well put me in the lost and found


    What am I supposed to say
    When I wanna scream every time you look my way
    I ain't sad and I ain't sound
    Might as well put me in the lost and found

    Because I feel like a crumpled up paper sac
    Empty ring that's been thrown in the trash
    I gived and learned because I'm pretty smart

    But I still don't know why you want to tear me apart Writer/s: ALLISON MOORER, KENNY GREENBERG
