well it started out like any other day
he said meet me with the car i said okay
when i got there and pulled him off his face
i didn't know what to say

he said what had happened her was not his fault
and the kid responsible had not been caught
when someone round the corner called the cops
well he got in and we took off

well something bout your story never seemed to quite add up
and the more times that i hear it makes me wanna give you up
because you're reckless and you're hurting everybody that you love
you know you are
you know you are

but are you getting the attention
we both agree you know you need
so don't get angry don't stomp your feet
when all your friends call you a thief

well i told him he should get it off his chest
and everything would be okay if he'd confessed
and i wouldn't be the one to fix this mess
that's when he put his hands around my neck

well i remember what was on the radio
that everything was moving soft and slow
and the color disappearing from the road
my heart gave up and i let go

but something bout your story never really added up
and i think you probably know that i could never give you up
and i know you didn't mean it
and i know you're above the things you do
and the things you've done

but are you getting the attention
we both agree you know you need
so don't get angry don't stomp your feet
when all your friends call you a thief
call you a thief
call you a thief

but are you getting the attention
we both agree you know you need
so don't get angry don't get upset
when what's coming to you
you finally get
you finally get

    General Commentthis song is beautiful
    im not sure of the meaning yet
    but im guessing it can be about being next to a person that hasnt done the "right" things
    i guess maybe it can be the what now stage after you know the person is wrong.
    i can also see maybe the person who is singing was lied to by the theif and that took them by surprise

    General CommentLove this song.. Reminds me of my sister.

    Causes all kinds of trouble and lies to cover lies until she no longer knows the truth. Always doing questionable things to get attention. But, she is my sisters so of course I'll always forgive her.
