Potential Breakup Song

Album: Insomniatic (2007)
Charted: 22 17
  • It took too long, it took too long, it took too long for you to call back
    And normally I would just forget that
    Except for the fact it was my birthday
    My stupid birthday

    I played along, I played along, I played along, rolled right off my back
    But obviously my armor was cracked
    What kind of a boyfriend would forget that?
    Who would forget that?

    The type of guy who doesn't see what he has until she leaves
    Don't let me go
    'Cause without me, you know you're lost, wise up now or pay the cost
    Soon you will know

    You're not livin' till you're livin'
    Livin' with me
    You're not winnin' till you're winnin'
    Winnin' me
    You're not gettin' till you're gettin'
    Gettin' me
    You're not livin' till you're livin'
    Livin' for me

    This is the potential breakup song
    Our album needs just one
    Oh baby, please
    Please, tell me

    We got along, we got along, we got along until you did that
    Now all I want is just my stuff back
    Do you get that?
    Let me repeat that
    I want my stuff back

    You can send it in a box
    I don't care, just drop it off
    I won't be home
    'Cause without me, you know you're lost
    Minus you I'm better off
    Soon you will know

    You're not livin' till you're livin'
    Livin' with me
    You're not winnin' till you're winnin'
    Winnin' me
    You're not gettin' till you're gettin'
    Gettin' me
    You're not livin' till you're livin'
    Livin' for me

    You can try, you can try
    You know I know it'd be a lie
    Without me you're gonna die
    So you better think clearly, clearly
    Before you nearly, nearly
    Mess up the situation that your gonna miss dearly, dearly
    C'mon

    You're not livin' till you're livin'
    Livin' with me
    You're not winnin' till you're winnin'
    Winnin' me
    You're not gettin' till you're gettin'
    Gettin' me
    You're not livin' till you're livin'
    Livin' for me

    This is the potential breakup song
    Our album needs just one
    Oh baby, please
    Please, tell me

    This is the potential break-up song
    Please, just admit you're wrong
    Which will it be?
    Which will it be? Writer/s: Alyson Michalka, Amanda J. Michalka, Antonina Armato, Timothy James Price
