Sheets up around your neck and your hearts down across the floor
He’s got the best of you; yeah he’s got you right where he wants you
In between his dreams (and your legs) exactly where you don’t belong
But you always give the best reasons why your there but no

Don’t speak a word (they don’t mean much anymore)
Don’t speak a word (just keep quiet, keep still)
Don’t speak a word

I could never do it
Better than you do, make the same excuses that you breathe
Your honest words they always seem to be the ones you never speak

Sheets up around your neck and your regrets there moving slow
Just like his hands across your hips, exactly where they don’t belong
No, your excuses wont retrace the mistakes that you made.

I could never do it
Better than you do, make the same excuses that you breathe
Your honest words they always seem to be the ones you never speak

I know every single secret that you never told.
Don’t lie, well honestly, isn’t this just want you “wanted”

    This seems to be the tone set thoughout the song, about not doing anything about what's wrong, and just going along with whatever - youre "keeping quiet".

    I love that. It's a scary notion that someone knows you that well.
