Are these words working do they work for you?
Is there something wrong between us?
Is there something I can do?
Is there some way I can take back all the times you threw away?
Been burning up the decade when you should've seized the day

I wonder why you're talking 'cause you're talking all the time
Will you ever get the message and just leave it all behind
The conversation's trivial but trivial is fine
When held up to the light

Do you think my personality is written in stone?
Are you positively certain that you know what you've been shown
I'm a snapshot of the person that you think I ought to be
Now give it up! Give it up! Give it up!

I been the leader, I've been the follower
I've been the dreamer, I've been the wallower
I take the high road, I take the low road
Don't wanna be your mother

I've been down, boys, I've been down boys
Been right to the top
When you hear me coming you can hear a pin drop

Didn't mean to be annoying, didn't mean to make a mess
Never meant to cast a shadow but it's leading me to stress
The shrapnel from your heart is buried in my chest
And it's 'not all me

Do you think my personality is written in stone?
Are you positively certain that you know what you've been shown
I'm a snapshot of the person that you think I ought to be
Now give it up! Give it up! Give it up!
