99 Times

Album: A Fine Mess (2009)
  • So, you see
    You've got me back again for more
    And it seems
    Your song is in my head
    This is war
    Mystery, how I could feel you breathe me

    I was sure you would keep
    Every promise; you would keep
    Every word

    Well,
    I try to put your stories in line
    But nothing adds up right

    For every 99 times
    You looked me in the eye,
    You looked me in the eye
    And swore you weren't lying
    Well, I was so blind
    I never saw the signs
    I'm getting out tonight
    And you're not invited

    Its a shame
    That you left me hanging like you did
    It was brave
    But it was much more foolish
    Don't you think?
    Cause you know I wont be satisfied
    Until you realize

    For every 99 times
    You looked me in the eye,
    You looked me in the eye
    And swore you weren't lying
    Well, I was so blind
    I never saw the signs
    I'm getting out tonight
    And you're not invited

    These things are oh, all so typical
    These things are unforgivable
    I'm gone and you're invisible now
    Don't let me catch you following
    Don't ask, cause I'm not offering
    You've caused enough of my suffering, oh

    For every 99 times
    You looked me in the eye,
    You looked me in the eye
    And swore you weren't lying
    Well, I was so blind
    I never saw the signs
    I'm getting out tonight

    For every 99 times
    You looked me in the eye,
    You looked me in the eye
    And swore you weren't lying
    Well, I was so blind
    I never saw the signs
    I'm getting out tonight
    And you're not invited Writer/s: KATE ELIZABETH VOEGELE
