You knocked those pictures right off the wall
I slammed the bathroom door so hard it doesn't close right at all
Last week we broke my mother's favorite serving plate
All just casualties of a love that's lost it's way
You and I baby, don't even know how to fight
We don't know nothin' 'bout nothin'
Except how to survive

How come we keep this TV up so loud
What are we so afraid of that we keep drowning out
Well, this is not the life that we deserve
And talking might make it better
But what if it makes it worse
Cause you and I baby, don't even know how to fight
We don't know nothin' 'bout nothin'
Except how to survive

We take times just coming out for real
Oh, and I could cry about it but my tears don't look around here
Last night I caught myself just looking at you
But I only saw a stone wall impossible to break through
Oh, you and I baby, don't even know how to fight
We don't know nothin' 'bout nothin'
Oh, we don't know nothin' bout nothin'
Except how to survive
How to survive
How to survive
