He regrets having no regrets
and his long nights on the outside
letting letting it slide slide
one more time

He can't stand it when you talk to him
in that voice that sounds like your mother
He's watching your mouth move
he turns words into white noise
He blocks you out

What do you want?
What do you want to know?
Make a decision
it never feels like the right time to go
(what do you want, what do you want to know?)
You think he's a liar
so save your sorrow

He wants to want nothing
nothing to do with a woman
You fall in love with his lies and eyes
and you think that he listens

while you act like you are losing your mind
over whatever truth you find to be a lie
as he fades out of the room
into his mind

What do you want?
What do you want to know?
Make a decision
it never feels like the right time to go
(what do you want, what do you want to know?)
You think he's a liar
so save your sorrow

Pick up the pieces of these words
shattered across the floor
with careful hands
you know these words are sharp
and you can read the blood
you can read the blood
(what do you want, what do you want to know?)

It spells out everything about a man
who he is and where he's been
you watched his eyes ten thousand times
but you don't see
maybe you're wrong

    Lyric CorrectionJust a few here. Blur is actually blood. (That section is on the Dangerbird page for the band.) Knowing that word, it helps fix the next line after that which is, "Spells out everything about one man / Who he is and where he's been"

    My listening of the lyrics:

    He regrets having no regrets
    And his long nights on the outside
    Letting it slide
    One more time
    He cant stand it when you talk to him in that voice that sounds like your mother
    He's watching your mouth move
    He turns words into white noise
    He blocks you out

    What do you want, what do you want to know?
    The good decision
    Never feels like the right time, girl
    (What do you want, what do you want to know?)
    You think he's a liar
    So save your sorrow

    He wants to, want nothing
    Nothing to do with the woman
    Who fall in love with his lies, eyes
    And you think that he listens

    While you act like you are losing your mind
    Over whatever truth you find to be a lie
    As he fades out of the room, into his mind

    What do you want, what do you want to know?
    The good decision
    Never feels like the right time, girl
    (What do you want, what do you want to know?)
    Think he's a liar
    So save your sorrow

    Pick up the pieces of these words
    Shattered across the floor
    With careful hands
    You know his words are sharp
    and you can read the blood
    You can read the blood
    You can read the blood
    You can read the blood
    (What do you want, what do you want to know?)
    You can read the blood

    Spells out everything about one man
    Who he is and where he's been
    You watch his eyes ten thousand times
    But you don't see
    Maybe you're wrong
