Sometimes you lose your head
Think of all the stupid things you've said
Pouring out of your mouth
Like rain through a broken windowpane
Nobody made you do it
There's a hoop and you jump through it
You made this mess all by yourself
What did you say?
I thought I said everything there was for me to say
How could you know?
I looked into her eyes, I thought they were telling me so
Now I don't want to be your cause for sympathy
I took my chances, eyes wide open
Stayed too long and the spell was broken
Nobody wants to see
The mess you become so easily
Crawling around and singing your sad songs
Late into the night
Must be the words you're choosing
The unconvincing smile you're using
Try and try again, you can't get it right
What did you do?
I poured my heart out til my words filled the room
How did it go?
She smiled and took my hand, said it's all just a little too soon.
Now I don't want to be your cause for sympathy
Save your tears, I never earned them
Lessons are there, but I never learn them at all
Every night the same old game
Fumbling around for some stranger's name
Or going out of your mind
Waiting for the phone to finally ring
I know life can be so messy
But you can't spend all your time confessing
Try saving something for yourself
What did you say?
I thought I said everything there was for me to say
How could you know?
I looked into her crying eyes, they were telling me so
Now I don't want to be your cause for sympathy
Save your breath, I never listen
You think I don't know something's missing
But now I'll wait and see
How it all turns out for me
It's not as painful as they tell you
Some success in every failure
Now I know I can handle the pain
I'll stand here waiting, hope it all happens again
