We'll I guess I know what it is you want from me

An apology, but girl if I were you

I wouldn't hold my breath



This is for never ever getting back at you

Like I wanted to

This is for everyone who breathes

This is for everyone who sees only the sympathetic side of things

'Cause dependency makes them wait for change

And this is for everyone who senses the scent of deceit on their lover's breath

For everyone who could never let them go



And my call to you goes to voicemail

As your voice calls out to the wrong male

Maybe your eyes can't lie, but it's your tongue that worries me

So here I am where you put me

My head in my hands, I'm in the back seat

We're driving fast but ignoring signs to slow down

    General CommentI love this song!!
    I think it's about having a lover who cheats, and you know it, but you can't let them go. You stay with them because you care about them, but you know what's going on when you call and they don't pick up.

    General Commentoh, and you keep waiting for them to stop cheating, but they keep going, thinking you don't know.
