Take Me

I don’t know what I could say to you
That wouldn’t make you feel colder
I don’t know that I could make it true
I don’t know that I could be your shoulder
You could be accommodating, too
If you were only just a little bolder
And I’m looking at the last year or two
We’re no better, only older
So you can tell your friends that I’m a drunk
And I won’t argue ‘cause it’s true
But anything you say to me eventually will go away
Like the things that we were working through, like everything I said to you,
Like every single passing day, and everything we meant to say
They dissipate and disappear, but I’m still here…
Take me back
I don’t know where the years became a blur
All I know is life is gum I’ve chewed the flavor out of
I don’t know why I fucked around with her
All I know is I fucked myself ‘cause now I live without love
As I fade and fall from view
A little peace is found in this: that
Maybe we admit mistakes, that I’m a slut and you’re a fake,
We say goodbye and hug and kiss, and tell ourselves "remember this",
I could quit the sneak attacks, and you could try to just relax,
Through hide & seek and ring & run you’re still the one…
Take me back
Give up everything you earned and pick up from the past
Take me back
Give up everything you have and give me one more chance.
You can tell my mother I’m a drunk
I won’t argue ‘cause it’s true. But
Anything you say to me eventually will go away,
Like things that we were working through, like every lie I told to you
Like every single fleeting day, and all the things we meant to say,
They dissipate and disappear, I’m stubbornly remaining here,
Maybe we admit mistakes, that you’re a bitch and I’m a fake,
I could quit the sneak attacks and you could try to just relax
That I screwed up and I’m in pain and you have every right to blame,
Through everything I’ve lost or won you’re still the one.
Take me back. Take me back.
