  • I know you don't mean to be
    Mean to me
    Cause when you want to
    You can make me feel like we belong
    We belong

    Lately you make me feel all I am
    Is a back up plan
    I say, "I'm done," and then you smile at me
    And I forget
    Everything I said
    I buy into those eyes
    And into your lies

    You say you'll call, but I know you
    You say you're coming home, but I know you
    You say you'll call, but I know you won't
    You say you'll call, but I know you wont'

    I wish you were where you're supposed to be
    Close to me
    But here I am just staring at this candle
    Burning out
    A stumbled sound
    Of footsteps on my stairs
    Your voice anywhere

    You say you'll call, but I know you
    You say you're coming home, but I know you
    You say you'll call, but I know you won't
    You say you'll call, but I know you wont'

    You say you'll call, but I know you
    You say you're coming home, but I know you
    You say you'll call, but I know you won't
    You say you'll call, but I know you wont' Writer/s: Neil Thrasher, Steve McEwan, Wendell Mobley
