  • Anythings hard to change
    But hey I got you down on your knees again
    You watch the sky
    It's a pale parade of passing clouds
    That cover
    The bed upon which we laid
    In the dark
    And the memories that I made
    Of a laughing girl
    But you're just my toy
    And I can't stop playing with you, baby

    [Chorus]
    If you think you need to go
    If you wanted to be free
    There's one thing you need to know
    And that's that you can't count on me

    Coming along real good
    But I still can't do most of the things I should
    I watch the sky coming down to bury me and
    I can't stop this crawling out of my skin
    I know that you see yourself flying in
    Out of the sky
    Coming down
    To carry me
    But I won't come out

    [Chorus]

    No you can't count on me

    I watched all of the same parades
    As they passed on the days that you wish you'd stayed
    All this pain gets me high
    And I get off and you know why

    [Chorus: x2]

    Aw you can't count on me
    No you can't count on me Writer/s: ADAM FREDRIC DURITZ, CHARLES THOMAS GILLINGHAM, DANIEL JOHN VICKREY, DAVID LYNN BRYSON, JAMES BOGIOS, MILLARD POWERS
