You been talking for an hour
And I swear to God that I can't hear a word you say
So would you come to me, come to me
I get caught up in the waves of conversation, they wash over me
And they cover me, they cover me

Chorus 1:
Should I just pack my things and leave
Would I be a bigger man if i
I build a wall around your heart, dare you to come in
I can lie to you, and say I didn't mean it
But hurt's a funny thing and
It makes you stronger

Chorus 2:
Where all is nothing in moderation
It's a dirty feeling, it makes you stronger
Well I believe I'm just plain tired

There's a funny way your lip shakes
When I know that you've been lying and it touches me,
Mmmm....said it comforts me, it comforts me
Well I guess I should be satisfied cause you say you love me half the time
Well I'll settle there, we can build from there, build from there

Would you be happier if I was only half the man I am
You could shout at me, dare me to come in
I can lie to you, and say I didn't mean it,
But it really doesn't matter when you stop to think about it

(chorus 2)

Chorus 3:
Say the end is coming she don't even feel it,
It's a strange sensation, I'm almost happy
Well I believe I'm just plain tired
I'm tired

(chorus 1)
(chorus 2)
(chorus 3)
(chorus 2)
(chorus 3)
