Where are you off to with that head of yours?
Is there somewhere you should be?
Was it something that I said the time I held you down
And told you it's not you it's only me?


Don't take what I don't need
(Give me back my peace of mind)
Don't say what I don't mean
(Give my back my precious time)
No way you'll silence me
You'll see

What you up to now your mirror's gone?
Is there someone you should be?
Did you think I was just fooling 'round with you?

But honestly
But honestly
But honestly

Don't take what I don't need
(Give me back my peace of mind)
Don't say what I don't mean
(Give me back my precious time)
No way you'll silence me
(Give me back my peace and quiet)
Nowhere to hide from me
You'll see

And tonight I thank the stars
As I count my lucky scars
For everything you've given me

And all the words I gave to you
Something borrowed, something blue
If you want them back
I'll give it to you

Give it to you [15x]

And one more thing that I gave to you [8x]

    I typically hate it when people say a relationship is the subject of every song. This one might actually be.
    I think this is about breaking free of relationships that are holding you back. Could be any kind of relationship that you've once held dear: girlfriend, home, even a relationship with yourself. The beginning is a lamentation of the relationship and towards the end, he thanks the counterpart for the journey and gives back all the remnants of the relationship to move on to bigger and better things.

    I don't think it means or not, you only see your story and you mirrored in a good song. This is when you now you heard a good song when you feel identified with the writer, regardless it means the same or not

    I just love how only one of these (including this) is actually a meaning. And it's barely one. Wow guys, wow.
