  • Oh yeah
    Oh yeah
    So scared of breaking it
    That you won't let it bend
    And I wrote two hundred letters
    I will never send
    Sometimes these cuts are so much
    Deeper than they seem
    You'd rather cover up
    I'd rather let them bleed
    So let me be
    And I'll set you free (oh yeah)

    I am in misery
    There ain't nobody
    Who can comfort me, oh yeah
    Why won't you answer me?
    The silence is slowly killing me, oh yeah
    Girl, you really got me bad
    You really got me bad
    Now I'm gonna get you back
    I'm gonna get you back, yeah

    Your salty skin and how
    It mixes in with mine
    The way it feels to be
    Completely intertwined
    Not that I didn't care
    It's that I didn't know
    It's not what I didn't feel
    It's what I didn't show
    So let me be
    And I'll set you free

    I am in misery
    There ain't nobody
    Who can comfort me, oh yeah
    Why won't you answer me?
    The silence is slowly killing me, oh yeah
    Girl, you really got me bad
    You really got me bad
    And now I'm gonna get you back
    I'm gonna get you back, yeah

    You say your faith is shaken
    And you may be mistaken
    You keep me wide awake and
    Waiting for the sun
    I'm desperate and confused
    So far away from you
    And I'm getting there
    I don't care where I have to run

    Why do you do what you do to me? Yeah
    Why won't you answer me, answer me? Yeah
    Why do you do what you do to me? Yeah
    Why won't you answer me, answer me? Yeah

    I am in misery
    There ain't nobody
    Who can comfort me, oh yeah
    Why won't you answer me?
    Your silence is slowly killing me, oh yeah
    Girl, you really got me bad
    You really got me bad
    And now I'm gonna get you back
    I'm gonna get you back (come on)

    Girl, you really got me bad
    You really got me bad
    Now I'm gonna get you back
    I'm gonna get you back

    (Girl, you really got me bad)
    (You really got me bad)
    (Now I'm gonna get you back)
    (I'm gonna get you back)
    (Girl, you really got me bad)
    (You really got me bad)
    (Now I'm gonna get you back)
