For You, and Your Denial

Album: When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes (2011)
Charted: 100
  • It's 4 a.m., you call to spit some fire out
    But did you think that I would listen to you now?
    It's nothing new so get in line with all the rest
    And I will wait till you realize you're out of breath

    Can you hear the crowd?
    They all go wild
    For you and your denial
    They're watching you break down (break down)
    Hate me all you want,
    I'll be okay
    I'm half the world away
    I'm letting you go now (go now)

    You've got sadness twisted up with jealousy
    You show your fists to make them look like loyalty
    And I have seen what holding on can take away
    If it's the past you love then that's where you can stay

    Can you hear the crowd?
    They all go wild
    For you and your denial
    They're watching you break down (break down)
    Hate me all you want,
    I'll be okay
    I'm half the world away
    I'm letting you go now (go now)
    Go now (go now)

    Desperation kills
    But when it's on your sleeve you wear it well
    Underneath it all
    You'll always have this war inside yourself

    I'm letting you go now (go now)
    Can you hear the crowd?
    They all go wild
    For you and your denial
    They're watching you break down (break down)
    Hate me all you want,
    I'll be okay
    I'm half the world away
    I'm letting you go now (go now)
    Go now (go now)
    Go now (go now)
    Go now (go now) Writer/s: LONGINEU WARREN III PARSONS, RYAN MICHAEL MENDEZ, SEAN MICHAEL WELLMAN-MACKIN, SEAN T. O'DONNELL, WILLIAM RYAN KEY
