By The Way

Album: Extreme Behavior (2005)
  • In the winding down hours
    I let your heart down again
    (What did I do to make a scene so gory?
    I'm no better than the ones before me)
    Old habits die hard
    I always end up hating the end
    (What did I do to make a scene so gory?
    I'm no better than the ones before me)

    I'm in the middle of a breakdown
    Watching you scream
    In the middle of a breakdown
    Screaming at me

    And by the way
    By the way
    What made you think you'd have it your way?
    And by the way
    By the way
    Don't say I didn't warn you that I'll always stay the same

    Speechless and frozen
    Uncomfortable silence again
    (What did I do to make a scene so gory?
    I'm no better than the ones before me)
    I'm in the middle of a breakdown
    Watching you scream
    In the middle of a breakdown
    Screaming at me

    And by the way
    By the way
    What made you think you'd have it your way?
    And by the way
    By the way
    Don't say I didn't warn you that I'll always stay the same

    Battered and bruised
    Broken, confused
    It's time we both knew, oh
    Can't stop what I started
    This time we both lose, lose

    And by the way
    By the way
    What made you think you'd have it your way?
    And by the way
    By the way
    Don't say I didn't warn you that I'll always stay the same
    The same, the same
    I'll always stay the same
    (Battered and bruised)
    The same, (broken, confused), the same
    I didn't warn you that I'd always stay the same Writer/s: AUSTIN WINKLER, BRIAN HOWES, JOEY MOI, LLOYD GARVEY, MARK KING, MICHAEL RODDEN, ROSS HANSON
