The lights are overheating, the curtains won’t go down,
The roller-coaster's busted and I’m ready for the ground
'Til I hear you - "Don’t be like that."
My fingertips are bleeding, I’m dead on my feet,
I don’t feel like singing, I just want to go to sleep
'Til I hear you - "Don’t be like that."

My voice is a kettle going dry,
But I’ll try, I’ll try, I’ll try.

The television’s broken, the night’s a quiet storm,
The drama keeps unfolding, Oh, how poorly I’ve performed
'Til I hear you - "Don’t be like that."
I’m stuck inside this room, like I’m stuck inside myself,
The guitar in the closet like a Bible on a shelf
'Til I hear you - "Don’t be like that."

My song is a kettle going dry,
But I’ll try, I’ll try, I’ll try.

When my head is turning, when my eyes betray,
When I’m stealing beauty and it’s hard to look away,
I’ll hear you - "Don’t be like that."
When my fuse is burning, when I’m seeing red,
When I’m cussing like a dog, when the devil’s in my head
I’ll hear you - "Don’t be like that."

When my heart’s a kettle going dry,
I’ll try, I’ll try, I’ll try.
I’ll try, I’ll try, I’ll try.
