I have, the sweetest of sights, you've got to know it,
It's turned me sideways,
I had, some fire in my eyes when you got me going,
I'll say right now, its all I know

Rest easy tonight, for I'm starting to quiet down,
For now I've said some things that you just wont believe,
And its all for the principle,

Oh, oh...

I was, the master of homes(?) ready to hold you,
And you slipped my arms off.
I am, still keeping in mind all that you've gone through.
It's not enough, thats all i know

Rest easy tonight, for I'm starting to quiet down,
For now I'll said some things that I still don't believe,
And its all for the principle,

Oh, oh...

Rest easy tonight, yeah, I'm starting to, starting to,
Rest easy tonight, for I'm starting to quiet down,
For now I've said some things taking percs and aleve,
I'll try not to scream if you're trying to sleep,
But it's based on a principle,

Yeah, it's based on a principle

    General Commentcouple years late but I think the lyrics in the last verse say..

    "for now i've said some things, taken personally. i'll try not to scream if your trying to sleep, but it's based on a principal"
