(Featuring John Mayer)

Exactly how you hear it
Is exactly how it all went down
It was later in the evenin'
That the facts and the figures got turned around

It's true there was a woman
And yes, she did advance my way
And I can't be sure exactly
But I swear I saw her say my name

It was the right time
She was the real thing
I had to walk away
See, don't wanna be…

Stitched up
Out of my mind, feelin'
Strung out
Laggin' behind, all
Trapped in
Can't do a thing, because I'm
Locked down

Stitched up
Feelin' the burn, all
Strung out
Finally learned that
Trapped in, I can't [you] do a thing, because I'm [you're]
Locked down

I wonder where she came from
I wonder where she's gotta go…
Who's to say she's single? Who's to say she's on her own?
-Girls like that don't sleep alone-

That girl is flawless
And I know I'm not the first one to think that
And since I'm not the first
I sure won't be the last
Spend my whole life lookin' behind my back?
I just don't think I'm up to that

Stitch me up
String me out
Trap me in
Lock me down
