Hard Feelings

Who wants to ride the back seat? Who wants to admit to defeat? Who wants to drive straight through the night? Who's giving up without a fight? Who wants to take over as king? Who is afraid of hard feelings? Who wants to smile with their teeth? Who did you love but couldn't keep? I want what I can't have, babe I want what I can't have, babe I'll give what I can't take I want what I can't have, babe I want what I can't have, babe I'm gonna give what I can't take, back from you I want what I can't have, babe I want what I can't have, babe I want what I can't have, babe I want what I can't have, babe I'll give what I can't take I want what I can't have, babe I'm gonna give what I can't take, back from you

Wandering 04:25
I make coffee in the morning I work til the sun starts to sink I call my best friend I drink on weekends I think about you and have to start again Keep my mind from wandering back to you It's what you don't say that start to convey It was never in the cards to be just friends I chase the power lines Count the speed signs Turn the dial off that song you used to sing Keep my mind from wandering Cause my mind keep wandering back to you Rewind the tape deck Press play it all back I swear that last goodbye your eyes were watering And my mind was wondering Cause my mind keeps wandering back to you Back to you Back to you

I've tried to drown you from my mind You show up when I think I'm fine You hunker down like roots in a hurricane I'm going crazy you're like I'm okay it's okay it's okay I could walk on stilts right over you But you've got a rope to trip me through I wanna hold your heart right in my fist But you've got me tied up at the wrist, at the wrist, I can't resist This could have been a love song But it's killing me trying to get to you This could have been a love song But it's killing me trying to get to you This could have been a love song But you're over me falling over you I wanna be everything that you regret Live off the smoke from your cigarettes I wish you'd lay it out and spit the truth You're a goddamned vault trying to break into, break into, break in two This could have been a love song But it's killing me trying to get to you This could have been a love song But you're over me falling over you I keep falling apart Keep trying til you're invisible, yeah Invisible, yeah I keep falling apart Keep dying, til you're invisible, yeah Invisible, yeah This could have been a love song But it's killing me trying to get to you This could have been a love song But it's killing me trying to get to you This could have been a love song But you're over me falling over you

Falling 03:43
Just like the last time I'm drowning in the way you move I've following your shipwrecked fools To the floor of the ocean Just like the last time Your presence is a smoke-filled room I'm begging you to bend the rules The world must be joking You make thing better Here we go again Am I falling in love? Love? Am I falling in love? Love? Just like the last time you follow me through every dream I'm waiting for you to say please You know that I'm fading You make things better Here we go again Am I falling in love? Love? Am I falling in love? Love? Please don't get too close All the shit going on in my head It's a fireworks show You can't make this better Every look is a shot to my chest Am I falling in love? Love? Am I falling in love? Love?
