Everything I’ve ever done for you is lost and gone
and it won’t come back
It won’t come back
Affections come and roll right off your shoulders turn away
it’s like you’re sleeping
But you’re not sleeping

So I cling onto this tightness in my gut
And I find it strangely saccharine
Like tasting just a little bit of blood
Why so sweet to play the victim in this crooked mind
Distracted by another kind of villain

So take it back, just take it back now
Let’s take it back to where we both belong
Cuz we can’t win, no we can’t win, no
We can’t win for fear of losing
So take it back, just take it back now
Now, now, now, now

Words we always echoed from our mouths and from our hearts
have been revolting
revolting
They hang up in the sticky air between us, ostentatious
in their meaning
and demeaning

This battle may have only just begun
So is this all that I can muster?
But staring with you straight into the sun
All this time has made me weary of another one
Praying I won’t soon become your villain

Remember what you know
Remember all the happy homes we built
Remember why we’re here
It’s nothing like a rolling stone gone still
And maybe you’re right
Maybe there aint nothin’ that happens for a reason
A reason
But I got plenty right here
We both got plenty right here

So take it back, just take it back now
Please, take it back to where we both belong
Take it back, just take it back now
Take it back to where we both belong
Cuz we can’t win, no we can’t win, no
We can’t win for fear of losing
