There are just too many times that people have tried to look inside of me
Wondering what I think of you and I protect you out of courtesy
Too many times that I've held on when I needed to push away
Afraid to say what was on my mind, afraid to say what I need to say
Too many things that you've said about me when I'm not around
You think having the upper hand means you gotta keep putting me down
But I've had too many standoffs with you it's about as much as I can stand
So I'm waiting until the upper hand is mine

[Chorus]
(One minute you're on top)
The next you're not watch it drop
(Making your heart stop)
Just before you hit the floor
(One minute you're on top)
The next you're not, missed your shot
(Making you're heart stop)
You think you've won
(And then it's all gone)

So many people like me put so much trust in all your lies
So concerned with what you think to just say what we feel inside
So many people like me walk on eggshells all day long
All I know is that all I want is to feel like I'm not stepped on
There are so many things you say that make me feel you've crossed the line
What goes up will surely fall and I'm counting down the time
'Cause I've had so many standoffs with you it's about as much as I can stand
So I'm waiting until the upper hand is mine

[Chorus]
(One minute you're on top)
The next you're not watch it drop
(Making your heart stop)
Just before you hit the floor
(One minute you're on top)
The next you're not, missed your shot
(Making you're heart stop)
You think you've won
(And then it's all gone)
(And then it's all gone)
(And then it's all gone)
(And then it's all gone)
(Now it's all gone)

I know I'll never trust a single thing you say
You knew your lies would divide us but you lied anyway
And all the lies have got you floating up above us all
But what goes up has got to fall

[Chorus]
(One minute you're on top)
The next you're not watch it drop
(Making your heart stop)
Just before you hit the floor
(One minute you're on top)
The next you're not, missed your shot
(Making you're heart stop)
You think you've won
(And then it's all gone)
(And then it's all gone)
(And then it's all gone)
(And then it's all gone)
(Now it's all gone)

    This song is one of my faves! Makes me think of the controllers I've met...

    (One minute you're on top)
    The next you're not watch it drop
    (Making your heart stop)
    Just before you hit the floor
    (One minute you're on top)
    The next you're not, missed your shot
    (Making you're heart stop)
    You think you've won
    (And then it's all gone)
    (And then it's all gone)
    (And then it's all gone)
    (And then it's all gone)
    (Now it's all gone)

    Perfect-ness...
