What is your voice, what is your voice? What is your name?
Have you decided? Has your decision changed?
Are you static, are you moving, are you gone?
Have you decided for yourself where I belong?

I don't take what isn't mine, but I'll take what you have to give
Guess I was too quick to decide exactly what that is
And I am in the habit of verbalizing
But I guess sometimes silence is the best thing

And I don't exactly know all the reasons we must split up
Except I wasn't understanding and you were giving up
I have scars, you know, I have baggage, too
The clean slate doesn't work for me, maybe it will work for you
And a big strong prince will come to carry you away
He'll take you off to a castle where you'll marry that same day
And he'll be at your mercy and you'll be his queen
He has a big, strong sword to chase away all the scary things

And I don't exactly know all the reasons we must split up
Except I am not a prince, you know, I guess I'm not good enough
I have scars, you know, I have baggage, too
I kept trying to explain that to you

I don't take what isn't mine, but I'll take what you have to give
Guess I was too quick to decide exactly what that is
And I am in the habit of verbalizing
But I guess sometimes silence is the best thing

And I'll date other people, and you'll find serenity
And maybe we'll meet in the middle in this wonderful fantasy
But really time will pass, and all will be good
You'll marry somebody special and build a house in your parent's neighborhood
I don't begrudge you this sort of thing
I guess I just don't want to be the center of all your suffering
So I'll be on my way to my own dream land
Where the princes and the princesses both know where they stand

I don't take what isn't mine, but I'll take what you have to give
Guess I was too quick to decide exactly what that is
And I am in the habit of verbalizing
But I think sometimes silence is a very bad thing

What is your voice?
What is your name?
What is your voice saying?
