There's not much I can say to clean up my act
Because actions speak so much louder than words
So I'll tell you I'm sorry in advance
For any apology that doesn't meet your demands
Let's set a time to talk about it
"I'd already be alarmed if you could change my mind"
Three o'clock? Four o'clock? Not now?
"How about never? We're through."

You're obsessed with arson
And I dance through the flames
Just to keep you warm at night
This is the last time I'll ever take the blame
Just to keep you by my side
No more, no more

I'd explain if you'd just let me finish
Or at least if I knew where to start
See, I took my time, and I wasted it
But I'm making time to make it all up to you
"Well then, now's the time, you better kiss up fast"
I'd drag my tongue through broken glass
And lick the wounds you've given me
In hope you'd have forgiven me

I wish you'd uncross your arms
And I wish you wouldn't be so cross
So think, was it really me who crossed you?
Nailed to the cross, I'm crucified

You're obsessed with arson
And I dance through the flames
Just to keep you warm at night
And it's so pathetic
This is the last time I'll ever take the blame
Just to keep you by my side

"Honestly, every word you say is a lie."

Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Reflect on what I don't deserve
I'll put myself at fault
Cause she's the fairest of them all

At the stand, I swore to love you under oath
But I'm a liar as alleged as constant fighting plagues us both
Every time, my choice is simple -- you, or happiness
And believe me when I say it's tough
Cause I'm Dred Scott when you're in fury
And your friends become the jury
And I never state my case
Because I always take the blame
I've weighed my options one by one
And after all is said and done
Do I dare take another chance with you?
