VERSE 1.
I'm not here to read your mind
But I'm too, too proud to whine (all I'm saying)
I can't keep on wasting time
Holding your hand when I'm on the line
Holding your hand I'm not your lifeline

I'm not asking much
Just a touch of your empathy
For the crap that you're giving me
I'm not asking much
Just a touch of my dignity
That you took when you hurt me

PRE-CHORUS 1.
I should have seen it coming from afar
I should have listened to
My friends who always told me better
Next time I'm more clever

Couldn't say too much about you
When there's only scum around you
Shouldn't really be there for you
You need some time out yourself

Couldn't say too much about you
When there's only scum around you
Shouldn't really be there for you
You need some time out

CHORUS 1.
I can't keep on telling lies
Keep the truth
To my own demise (all I'm saying)
I can't keep on wasting time
Holding your hand
When I'm on the line
Holding your hand
I'm not your lifeline (all I'm saying)

I'm not asking much
Just a touch of your empathy
For the crap that you're giving me
I'm not asking much
Just a touch of my dignity
That you took when you hurt me

PRE-CHORUS 2.
I should have seen it coming from afar
I should have listened to
My friends who always told me better
Next time I'm more clever

Couldn't say too much about you
When there's only scum around you
Shouldn't really be there for you
You need some time out yourself

Couldn't say too much about you
When there's only scum around you
Shouldn't really be there for you
You need some time out

CHORUS 2.
I'm not here to read your mind
But I'm too, too proud to whine
All I'm saying is, I can't keep on wasting time

Holding your hand
When I'm on the line (all I'm saying)
Holding your hand
I'm not your lifeline (all I'm saying)

PRE-CHORUS 3.
I'm not asking much
Just a touch of your empathy
For the crap that you're giving me

I'm not asking much
Just a touch of my dignity
That you took when you hurt me

I should have seen it coming from afar
I should have listened to

My friends who always tell me better
Next time I'm more clever

I should have seen it coming from afar
I should have listened to

My friends who always tell me better
Next time I'm more clever

(You're just a little bit creepy, you're a little bit weepy, you're a
Little bit creepy, you're a little bit sleazy

Couldn't say too much about you
When there's only scum around you
Shouldn't really be there for you
You need some time out
