  • I've seen a lot things in life that words can't explain
    See we ain't any different but we just ain't the same
    They never listen when we tell 'em, tell 'em
    All they understand is venom, venom
    People only use you when you let 'em, let 'em
    Well if that's the case then I'm the one to blame

    'Cause there's a man over board
    And the tides gonna drag him down
    If there's a man in the clouds
    Then tell me where the hell is he now
    Why is the silence so loud
    Have I thrown it all away
    Lemme know, Lemme know
    Tell me is that what happens just for having a good intention, tension ohh ohh
    Look what happened to my Good Intention, tension ohh ohh
    Why won't anybody answer my question
    Why is the silence so loud
    I think I've thrown it all away
    I don't know, I don't know
    But lemme know
    Hear me out before you label me the bad one

    Ah

    I'm walking through the desert but I'm drowning inside
    No river runs deeper than the tear from my eye
    You only went and made me bitter, bitter
    I wish I wasn't such a giver, giver
    Apologize to my liver, liver
    'Cause if that's the case then your the one to blame

    'Cause there's a man over board (cause there's a man overboard)
    And the tides gonna drag him down (heyy)
    If there's a man in the clouds (whoa whoa)
    Then tell me where the hell is he now (yeah)
    Why is the silence so loud (tell me why is it so loud)
    Have I thrown it all away (yeah)
    Lemme know, Lemme know
    Tell me is that what happens just for having a good intention, tension ohh ohh
    Look what happened to my Good Intention, tension ohh ohh
    Why won't anybody answer my question
    Why is the silence so loud
    I think I've thrown it all away
    I don't know, I don't know
    But lemme know
    Hear me out before you label me the bad one

    Am I wrong to think the worlds got it in for me
    And am I right to say I'm longing for some sympathy
    See I feel a sound, but I can't hear it
    That's my heart strings getting played like a symphony
    Yo, you know you turned me insane
    Why you staring at window when I'm the one with the pain
    You know you set me off the rails
    And you'll be to blame
    If you're ever hear
    I jumped in front of the train we're both fucked in the brain
    (whoa whoa)

    'Cause there's a man over board
    And the tides gonna drag him down
    If there's a man in the clouds
    Then tell me where the hell is he now
    Why is the silence so loud (tell me why is it so loud)
    Have I thrown it all away
    Lemme know, Lemme know
    Tell me is that what happens just for having a good intention, tension ohh ohh
    Look what happened to my Good Intention, tension ohh ohh
    Why won't anybody answer my question
    Why is the silence so loud (tell me why is it so loud)
    I think I've thrown it all away
    I don't know, I don't know
    But lemme know
    Hear me out before you label me the bad one

    Why is the silence so loud
    I think I've thrown it all away
    I don't know, I don't know
    But lemme know
    Hear me out before you label me the bad oneWriter/s: Costadinos Contostavlos, Timothy Martin Powell, Wayne Anthony Hector, Alfred James Millar, Clinton Outten, Fraser T Smith, Anthony Evoloko, Kez Ingoldsby
