lyrics

I've never been
One to complain
And I’m not about to start today
But I need you to know
That things can't go
On like this anymore

You've never been
Too good with words
At least not the ones found in books
But nevertheless
You make me distressed
'Cause you keep sayin' nothin's wrong

You keep telling lies
I keep acting surprised
But we know
It’s for show

It's time you realized
That this doesn't make any sense
And the ostrich defense
Won't do you any good

It's not too late
That’s what I think
But only after half the bottle's gone
And it just isn’t fair
To always compare
You to someone less like you

Its time you realized
That this doesn't make any sense
And the ostrich defense
Won't do you any good

I've never been
One to complain
And I’m not about to start today
But I need you to know
That things can’t go
On like this anymore

You keep telling lies
I keep acting surprised
But we know
It’s for show
