We would drag ourselves to bed
And sleep took everything I had
I kept it up til he would call
You made me feel like a criminal

And then there's you
You kept a smile
Though I would always walk the wire
You gave it all

I gave you reason to have doubt
I had to get out of there
I took the stairs
I don't wanna fight with you if I can't be the one to have you

You sat that chair
Like a queen
In the kitchen
I memorized the lines your eyes made at every squint you shot my way

We would drag ourselves to bed
And sleep took everything I had
I kept it up til he would call
You made me feel like a criminal

And then there's you
You kept a smile
Though I would always walk the wire

Oh, but you're miserable
And I'm useless
Always making up excuses

I made you cry
Too many times
So I'm hanging up that line
I'm throwing rocks at your floor
I'm knocking down your front door
I'm desperate tonight and I just wanna fight
It's my confusion that lets me act so cold
So now I'll go, go, go

And you wanna be just left alone
Put down that phone
Cause if you want me just call out
Hey boy

    General CommentDoes anyone know how old this song is?
    It's very cutesy and charming since it's all acoustic but I doubt it's a final recording...f
