  • I'm sorry if I seem impatient
    I'm not a fan of pleasantries
    See, I get bored with the weather and what's in the news
    The topics we all hide beneath

    Could not care less about your day job
    The gossip or ordinary stress
    See, every relationship I've ever loved
    It starts when someone says

    Show me where it hurts and give me something real
    And lead me to the part of you that never really heals
    And say the words that burn when they leave your mouth
    Tell me your story, but don't leave the good parts out

    And tell me all about your failures
    The little things that make you cry
    And tell me the acts that you preach but cannot seem to practice
    That leave you compromised

    Show me where it hurts and give me something real
    And lead me to the part of you that never really heals
    And say the words that burn when they leave your mouth
    Tell me your story, but don't leave the good parts out

    I've seen your trophies, your highlight reels
    You know I would love you still if you lost it all
    And I love the castle that you have built
    But I am asking still to let down the walls

    Show me where it hurts and give me something real
    And lead me to the part of you that never really heals
    And say the words that burn when they leave your mouth
    Tell me your story
    And show me where it hurts, yeah
    Oh, to the part of you that never really heals
    And show me where it hurts, woah
    Tell me your story
    But don't leave the good parts out
    Don't leave the good parts out Writer/s: Alex Evert, Alex Tirheimer, Andy Grammer, Sam Fischer
