Getting Out

Album: Love and War (2009)
  • Yesterday I made you cry
    It didn't even phase me when your tears rolled down
    I was so convinced that I was right
    That you never even tried to bring me 'round

    And these rules are gettin' tangled in my body
    These rules, it's gonna hurt when you pull them out

    Look at what you made do
    I was only tryin' to save the world
    That I forgot about askin' you
    But look at what you made me say
    I'm usin' crosswords on the radio tellin' you to change your ways

    Look at what I've become
    Thought I was everythin' you dreamed of
    But you were dreamin' of gettin' out
    And now I can't get my ass off the couch

    Nicotine and alcohol
    Anythin' to fill the hole 'cause it's all too much
    There's nothin' I can talk about
    Of course I'm gonna shut you out

    I can hardly blame you 'cause you got me stuck, yeah
    But these rules are gettin' tangled in my body
    These rules, it's gonna hurt when you pull them out

    Look at what you made do
    I was just about to save the world
    That I forgot about askin' you
    But look at what you made me say
    I'm usin' crosswords on the radio tellin' you to change your ways

    And look at what I've become
    Thought I was everythin' you dreamed of
    But you were dreamin' of gettin' out
    And now I can't get my ass off the couch because of you

    I made you fly away, made you leave today but you never know
    How these rules got tangled in our bodies
    These rules, it's gonna hurt when you pull them out

    But look at what you made do
    I was just about to save the world
    That I forgot about askin' you
    But look at what you made me say
    I'm usin' crosswords on the radio tellin' you to change your ways

    And look at what I've become
    Thought I was everythin' you dreamed of
    But you were dreamin' of gettin' out
    And now I can't get my ass off the couch because of you Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER STEPHEN BOTTI
