lyrics

When you were a child, we would sit around the house like we didn't know what was innocent
But we still snuck around all the electric fences that held us together
While your parents knew that you had found love inside a casting call for thieves
But I'm bad with surrender because you held me for ransom with my hands tied behind my back

I don't have the time to say that I'm not sorry
But now that you have left the perfect picture
I'm done with apologies that start out empty
While you are waiting

The Hollywood sign was where we made out in the trunk of your car or maybe it was the hatchback
But then your boyfriend stopped by and he was wondering if all we were was just friends
And now we sit at the table for 4 with our egos ordering from the menu
While we sit silent and stare at the ground trying to not become breathless

I don't have the time to say that I'm not sorry
But now that you have left the perfect picture
I'm done with apologies that start out empty
While you are waiting
And when you stop and think about tomorrow
The night time will sneak up and try to haunt you
While you were asleep behind the wheel of a semi
Detached and disabled

People will try to hide their flaws
But I'm bad with saying that I'm wrong
When this whole world makes my head spin
You will never forget the taste
