I saved a room of courage and I'll spend it now
But all for what I ask myself
No it doesn't feel than an answer matters
Oh I thought I needed you to give me strength
With things I hoped you'd say
But as you stay quiet I just wonder

Only one thing left I wished I knew
How did you have me and I only got you?
If there's all bad timing and there's no control
I'm gonna do anything,
Gonna do everything I want
From now on

None of you will change your voice
You change your face
Scared to say what's wrong
But we kept going on yeah
Kept going on like
Two adult children engaged in separate play
You can run down all those days to me
Run through the whole year but why?

Only one thing left I wished I knew
How did you have me and I only got you?
If it's all bad timing and there's no control
I'm gonna do anything,
Gonna do everything I want
From now on

No one else would be as patient
Or at least be so forgiving
I'm not curious if all of your heart was
You can talk and I might listen
Hate the ones you show the present
I'm done living, now her life is hers

Only one thing left I wished I knew
How did you have me and I only got you?
If it's all bad timing and there's no control
I'm gonna do anything,
Gonna do everything I want
From now on
