  • You want to shake my hand, say there's no hard feelings
    But there's another lie between the lines I'm reading

    If you want him, then take him, just push me away, baby I just got to know
    If you want him, then have him, there's no other way, yeah

    I tear your letters up, and flush away the pieces
    How does that saying go, you'd love me till hell freezes

    You're lyin', I'm dyin' a little each day, girl you know it hurts me so
    Stop duckin' and diving, come right out and say

    [Chorus]
    Cause I can't take no more of this
    Love grammar, takin' me and breakin' me up, love grammar, the grammar of love
    I before he except after she - knows I'll always be there
    Ready or not, she took what I got - to give and she don't care - I before he

    Don't want to lose control, and maybe rock proceedings
    Don't fear a new attack, the fact is I'm conceding

    If you want him, then take him, don't treat me this way
    Cause I just feel like letting go
    You want him, you got him, I'm leavin' today

    [Chorus]

    Love grammar, takin' me and breakin' me up, love grammar, the grammar of love
    Love grammar, takin' me and breakin' me up, love grammar, the grammar of love

    I before he except after she, knows I'll always be there
    Ready or not, she took what I got, to give and she don't care
    I before he except after she

    [Repeats]
