What You Signed Up For

Album: Gravity, Drag Me Down (2002)
  • What if I stopped? What if I quit?
    What if I just threw up my hands and walked out on this shit?
    Would you even know, know what you were missing?
    Would you want to take back those times
    You just talked and talked and talked and never listened?

    What if I left all my ghosts in the past?
    What if I just grabbed my guitar and stepped out on your ass?
    Would you then regret all the things that you said?
    Would you stop opening your mouth before you engage your head?

    How could you forget who you're dealing with?
    Cuz I'm the queen of in between
    Just throwing it back and throwing a fit
    Oh ah Look at the board and let's check the score
    It's one for me and none for you, oh yes it's true
    Look what you signed up for...

    What if I tire, get tired of playing grown?
    What if I just turned on my heels, took my ball and went home?
    Would you then stop playing, playing the game just to win it?
    Learn we don't want you as captain we just want you to play in it.

    They wonder why women just wanna pack up and leave
    It's cuz we're given too many grievances and no permission to grieve
    So as far as I'm concerned, it's time for me to go
    So if you want me you can write me
    in a town that you can find me called Kiss My Ass, Mexico

    How could you forget who you're dealing with?
    Cuz I'm the girl who holds the world
    Between a downy cradle and a raging fist
    Oh, ah if you ever want to settle the score
    Well pack a lunch and bring it on
    Before the ride look what you signed
    Look what you signed up for
