[AJ:]
Here we are, seven days
And seven nights of empty tries
It's ritual, habitual
But it's never gonna work this time

[Brian:]
We're to the point of no return
And along the way the only thing we've learned
Is how to hurt each other

[AJ:]
I'm looking back and wondering why
It took so long to realize
That nothing's changed, it never will
All these years of standing still
And still we stay in all this pain
And nothing's gonna make it go away

[Chorus (emphasis on Nick):]
I don't wanna wait another minute
Put me out of my misery
I can read your mind baby you're not in it
And we're not what we used to be
No you wouldn't have to lie to me
If you would only let me go
And I don't wanna wait another minute to hear
Something that I already know
I know, I know, I know
Something that I already know
I know, I know, I know

[AJ:]
So save your voice
Don't waste your breath
Can't you see we're at the end
And this goodbye is permanent
So wish me well and try to forget

[Nick:]
And all the fights
And all the ways
We almost made it
But we never did
And it's finally come to this

[Repeat Chorus]

[AJ/All:]
We can not hide what we've become
So sick and tired of being numb
It's done, it's done
It's done

[Chorus II:]
I don't wanna wait another minute
Put me out of my misery
I can read your mind baby you're not in it
And we're not what we used to be
No, you wouldn't have to lie to me
If you would only let me go
And I don't wanna wait another minute to hear
Something that I already know
I know, I know, I know
Something that I already know
I know, I know, I know
Something that I already know
I know, I know, I know
I know, 'cause I know
