So wake up, smell the rejection
I'm so tired from lack of attention
From building up and tearing down these walls

You lack so many kind words
Followed by onward gestures
I've opened up my heart
You shut it down

And I know there's so much more than this
Oh, shut it down

I held on to every word you said to me
Through clenched teeth
I could've sworn it could've been your smile
But I know now better than to take your words
And make them into something all better than you're worth

And I carried this way too far for you
To you
Babe, in the way you did what you did, oh you did

    General CommentSome bits I'm not sure about, like "onward gestures", "babe" and the "to you" in the bridge which sounds like it ends with an S.

    Gotta love the high vocals in the chorus!
