Late night, by chance encounter,
A whisper, and everyone's found out,
She said he said he saw it with his own two eyes,

Time and place, (He called a friend)
Smile on your face, (Or she called him)
He kissed you, (She called me too)
You said you didn't know what to do,
You told me...

Take it how you want it,
There's no way around these played out scenes, they don't mean anything,
Take it how you want it,
There's no way around these played out scenes, they don't mean anything, to me,
We'll see,

One slip, should teach you a lesson,
Discretion leads to prevention,
Truth redefines itself as what you choose to believe,

Same story (Oh, not again)
But now its about me (It's all the same)
I've told the truth (As if you cared)
There's no convincing you,
So I said..

Take it how you want it,
There's no way around these played out scenes, they don't mean anything,
Take it how you want it,
There's no way around these played out scenes, they don't mean anything,

Take it how you want it,
Take it all away,
There's no use starting over,
It gets worse here everyday,
Back and forth forever,
Don't want anymore of that,
But there's no where to run,
So I keep coming back,

Take it how you want it,
There's no way around these played out scenes, they don't mean anything,
Take it how you want it,
There's no way around these played out scenes, they don't mean anything,

Take it how you want it, (Take..)
Take it how you want it, (It..)
Take it how you want it, (Away..)
(From me)
Take it how you want it, (Take..)
Take it how you want it, (It..)
Take it how you want it, (Away..)
(From me)

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong where it says "It gets worser everyday." It's definetly "It gets worse here everyday."

    General CommentThe lyrics on the bands website actually are "It gets worse here everyday," countreeman28. Seems like you would have no room to talk, even if it did say worser-seeing as how you spell "country" with two "e"s.

    General CommentThis song sounds to me as though a girl cheated on him in some way and rather than defending herself she just told him that it meant nothing and he could do what he wanted, knowing the truth. Then the same thing happened but the other way around, whether by coincidence or for revenge and he said the same thing to her.

    I might have totally made that all up, but that's just what I interpret the song to mean.
