Up Against the Wall

Album: Boys Like Girls (2006)
  • It's over, look out below
    I'm wasted, I still taste it
    Yeah it's so hard to let go
    So breathe in now, and breathe it out

    The forecast, A car crash
    It's looking like another

    Breakdown, rebound
    This could be my last goodbye
    You cross your heart, I hope to die

    And I can't deny your eyes
    You know I try to read between the lines,
    I saw a warning sign
    And then you threw me up against the wall
    Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
    I wish that I had never loved at all

    No rewinds, no second times
    And I won't break, I won't waste
    Everything you left behind
    So don't follow, just let it go
    The weather's been better
    Don't let it be another

    Breakdown, rebound
    This could be my last goodbye
    You cross your heart, I hope to die

    And I can't deny your eyes
    You know I try to read between the lines,
    I saw a warning sign
    And then you threw me up against the wall
    Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
    I wish that I had never loved at all

    All the nights spent sitting at home
    When you were out there on your own
    All the nights waited by the phone
    When you were going in alone
    And all your different faces
    And all your different ways
    Are making everything a mess
    And all I'm saying is that
    I have different places and
    All the complications led to this

    And I can't deny your eyes
    You know I try to read between the lines,
    I saw a warning sign
    And then you threw me up against the wall
    Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
    I wish that I had never loved at all

    And I can't deny your eyes
    You know I try to read between the lines,
    I saw a warning sign
    And then you threw me up against the wall
    Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
    I wish that I had never loved at all Writer/s: MARTIN JOHNSON, SAM HOLLANDER, DAVID KATZ
