Say What You Mean

Another night I’m sleeping on a dirty floor again
I’m howling at the moon until the morning light pours in
And I am halfway dreaming halfway trying to find a pen
‘Cause suddenly I’m lonelier than I have ever been

Another night ignoring all the things we’re doing wrong
I hate to say I like the way you love to lead me on
You promise that you’re serious and take me by the hand
And I could try and fight it but I wouldn’t stand a chance

‘Cause I know
where I’ve been,
how the story always ends
Another night,
I’m giving in again

Don’t let me down
Just hear me out
If I’m what you need
Say what you mean

Another night is over and we stumble in the street
Staring at the sidewalk and I’m studying my feet
Drunk and on the verge of something, you decide to go
And I am standing quiet in a place I’ve come to know

And I’m still
where I’ve been,
where the story always ends
Another night,
I’m giving up again

Don’t let me down
Just hear me out
If I’m what you need
Say what you mean

I'm too young to give a fuck
And too old not to care
I'm fine with having fun
But this is just unfair

Don’t let me down
Just hear me out

Don’t let me down
Just hear me out
If I’m what you need
Say what you mean

Say what you mean
Say what you mean
Say what you mean
Say what you mean
