Say the words I cannot say
Say them on another day
Fragile words like these will cut your tongue

Was I good enough? Was I bad enough?
When I wanted more, yeah, yeah you had enough.
But nobody's gonna try for you. Nobody's gonna do like I for you.

And every slow-lit cigarette
That nervous hands can barely get
The courage I could always feel your eyes

And those dresses you made look like gowns
You're a sinner but the devil even turned you down
Cause nobody's gonna try for you.
Nobody's gonna do like I for you.

And nobody's gonna try for you.
And nobody's gonna lie for you.
Nobody's gonna do like I for you.

Hold me like you never could,
I'll hold you like I said I would.
Air or light won't breathe nor shine between.

With your feather lips, yeah you fly away
Well I hope they come back down someday, cause

Nobody's gonna try for you.
Nobody's gonna do like I for you.

Somebody's getting by for you.
I don't bend, I just break in two.
Somebody like me...
I'd die for you.

    The speaker understands that the spoken to will do anything and everything to get those around them to do what they want, but the speaker says to the spoken to that no one will ever truly care about them, but the speaker.
