Hold my hand
While you cut me down
It had only just begun
But now it's over now
And your
In the heat of moments
With your heart
Playing up cold
I'm between the middle
Watching hastiness unfold
On my eyes
Your were smiling
In the spotlight dancing
With the night
When I fell
Off your mind

I'm tired of trying
Your teasing ain't enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don't get nothing back
And for and for and for
When I don't get nothing back
Oi, I'm tired

Where'd you go
When you stay behind
I looked up and inside down
And outside only to find
A double taking punching heartache
Only laughing at my smile
I get closer you
Obviously prefer her

Chorus:
I'm tired of trying
Your teasing ain't enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don't get nothing back
And for what? and for what? and for what?
When I don't get nothing back
Oi, I'm tired of trying
Your teasing ain't enough
Fed up of biding your time
When I don't get nothing back
And for what? and for what? and for what?
When I don't get nothing back
Oi, I'm tired

(I should have known)

Never mind said
Your open arms
I couldn't help
The leap that tripped me
Back into them, even though

(Chorus)

    She is looking for a real relationship but he is not sure of what he wants, he has a lot of prejudices and is confused about the atraction he feel to her and his own old convictions. She is tired of waiting and trying every way to gain his love.

    You made me believe you actually cared about me, but you clearly fooled me. I'm so done with this. I put so much into making you feel for me what i feel for you. "and for what? " absolutely nothing in return.
