Sing me a song, tell me about
The things you’re dealing with lately
I don’t understand how you could
Sing to me lies, let them linger
Inside of me, give me a reason
To stay with you, just let me know
So I can run away faster than ever before

Counting down all of the hours I’ve spent here
Drowning in all of your lies dear
I wish that I could have been warned
So I’ll tell them steer clear of Texas
To warn them and let them all know what’s in store
To let them all know what’s in store

I can't tell you how much I'd love to take back every word I said
You gave me every reason to ignore lies you fed me then
And I'm so sorry dear; I must escape before you suffocate me
So I waited patiently as long as I could
Fought so hard for a girl, that I loved
Who later turned out to be someone I hardly knew

Counting down all of the hours I’ve spent here
Drowning in all of your lies dear
I wish that I could have been warned
So I’ll tell them steer clear of Texas
To warn them and let them all know what’s in store
To let them all know what’s in store
(To let them all know you’re a whore)

Spent a lot of my time trying to make this alright
trying to make this alright
Spent a lot of my time trying to make this alright
trying to make this alright
Alone now, I hope this is all that you wanted
Spent a lot of my time trying to make this alright
trying to make this alright
And you’ll be alone till, the time that you change
but you’ll never change
Spent a lot of my time trying to make this alright
trying to make this alright
Alone now, I hope this is all that you wanted
Spent a lot of my time trying to make this alright
trying to make this alright
And you’ll be alone till, the time that you change
but you’ll never change
Alone now, I hope this is all that you wanted
And you’ll be alone now, I hope this is all that you wanted

    General Commenti think this song means that he was dating this girl but she was lieing to him the whole time and she wants him back and he wants to know a reason why he should take her back. hes saying he put alot of time into this relationship and now he feels stupid and useless and wishes he could take all of what he said to ever make her feel good back.

    awesome song

    General CommentThis song is simply amazing.

    It pretty much explains itself.

    It's about a guy who fell in love with a girl who basically based their relationship on lies. He decided to leave her because he was tired of it all and now she is begging for him to take her back and he wants to know why.

    General Commenti can't even explain my love for this song.. the lyrics, the amazing voices of andrew and eric from TSA, the acoustic feel.. i love it all. i agree with punkster 812, it's a song about a guy who had fallen in love but realized the relationship was based on lies from this girl, and knows the best thing to do is leave her behind and forget about her.
    simply beautiful

    General Commentto me this song seems like a guy broke up with a girl because she's a slut hense "To let them all know you’re a whore" and he's telling people to not get excited when she likes them and to just be like no its not worth it

    General Commentso. everyone can tell what the song means, but i think that "Texas" might be the girl he's singing about. First he starts off telling her to tell him about her problems and then comes back with all the sarcastic points about her lies. It's perfect. He wants everyone to know how she treated him so that they'll stay away from her. Eventually she'll be the one who's alone.


    I adore this song. The lyrics are really deep.
