These are the words I will say
This is the story I'll tell
When I speak your name
You'll probably like it yourself

That's what I never could take
You wanted me when you wanted me
And the rest was just a waste of your time

I'll say the words that you want
I thought you loved me but you don't, you don't
And now as two become three
If you're hurting I can't see
And you're taking what's left of me

For what it's worth I believed
Every word that you said
So here is what I will say
With these last wasted breaths
Take take take take
Back your promises and those sweet kisses
That I thought were only for me

To find myself at the end
Of these lines that you're selling
Is telling

I would have always gave in
But those late nights and phone calls
Whispering everything I'd ever want

For what it's worth I believed
Every word that you said
So here is what I will say
With these last wasted breaths
Take take take take
Back your promises and those sweet kisses
That I thought were only for me

You dug
My heart out
Of me
I thought you love me but you don't 'cause
You dug
My heart out
Of me
I waited for
You to answer why
But waiting's not a reply

This is the story I'll tell
You wanted me when you wanted me (you wanted me)

For what it's worth I believed
Every word that you said
So here is what I will say
With these last wasted breaths
Take take take take
Back your promises and those sweet kisses
That I thought were only for me

    I'm surprised nobody's commented on this song yet. It's amazing!

    I'm going to say that this song could obviously be about a breakup...but every song has a deeper meaning than the surface. That you have to interpret yourself as an individual.
