  • You've got a nerve to be asking a favor
    You've got a nerve to be calling my number
    I know we've been through this before
    Can't you hear me, I'm calling out your name?
    Can't you see me, I'm pounding on your door?

    You've got a nerve to be asking a favor
    You've got a nerve to be calling my number
    Can't you hear me, I'm bleeding on the wall?
    Can't you see me, I'm pounding on your door?

    Can't you hear me when I'm calling out your name?

    When I used to go out, I would know everyone that I saw
    Now I go out alone if I go out at all

    When I used to go out I'd know everyone I saw
    Now I go out alone if I go out at all

    When I used to go out I'd know everyone I saw
    Now I go out alone if I go out at all

    You've got a nerve to be asking a favor
    You've got a nerve to be calling my number
    I'm sure we've been through this before
    Can't you hear me, I'm beating on your wall?
    Can't you see me, I'm pounding on your door? Writer/s: James Leithauser, Matthew Barrick, Paul C. Maroon, Peter M. Bauer, Walter Martin
