you spend your time building these walls
but it seems you’d make a better window
and all the while they’re throwing stones
well I have something that will let you know

if you could see your face
deception isn’t treating you well
the lies you couldn’t take and wouldn’t tell
it’s nothing personal

I spend my time singing this song
can’t even think of your name
you wrap yourself around my finger
even though your better judgment says to go
waiting for the rhythm to agitate your senses
fuel a flame with every note

lose all your confidence
what’s wrong love
did the cat get your tongue
and the thought of chivalry
is so laughably conceived
with every melody

you should see your face
