Never been on time,
Still I could get it right.
But you never know,
So I got down on myself again.
Waiting to defend everything I feel.

And then you come here late tonight,
You're down, you're so uptight.
I said, Hell, it's the weekend
You want to talk it out
The chance is there, but you're too scared to take it.

Oh, you'll never know,
You'll never know.

Never lost control,
Until the day I was told.
Hey man, you'll never know,
So I got down on myself again.
Wanting to defend everything I feel.

You know I tried to please my case,
But no matter what I say.
You don't believe me, no,
What's done is done,
so please don't make it worse with false sincerity.

You'll never know,
You'll never know.
You'll never know,
(Just confide in me)
You'll never know.
(This one time, tonight)

I simply know no other way,
To verify to overstate just how bad.
I want you, I want you, I want you,
You know, one, two, three, four, five.
Times I compromised,
Just to have you, to hold you, control you.

You were never so bold as when you lost control,
You were taking it all and giving none in return.
That's 'cause you sell yourself short, you sell yourself short,
Everytime you go for it.

Your words seemed so sincere,
But your actions, no they never were.
They never were, no,
They never were, no.
