lyrics

7. UNTITLED

You took the words right out of my mouth.
You took the breath out of my lungs.
We were still together when I wrote you this song,
But I don’t want to sing about us.

You took the wind right out of my sails.
You drove your point home then drove me away.
Spent all my money without knowing the cost,
So I don’t want to sing about us.

You took the softness away from my skin,
Mistook my faith for some gullible whim.
Took me for granted, but enough is enough.
I don’t want to sing about us.

You took my heart and stuck it up on a shelf.
I loved you and you only hated yourself.
I burned all your promises and now they’re just dust
Cause I don’t want to sing about us.

Yeah we were still in love when I wrote you this song.
Tell me, how’d you get to be so stranded and lost?
I’d tell you why, but I already forgot.
And I don’t want to sing about us.

You took the words right out of my mouth.
You took the breath out of my lungs.
We were still together when I wrote you this song,
But I don’t want to sing about us.
