Throw a dog a bone, I'll take it if I have to
Go real fast like there's somewhere we can get to
What's the use of standing right there on the edge if there ain't nowhere to fall
What's the use in hangin' on tight to the phone if nobody might call

Desperation
There's danger in frustration
Complicated words slippin' off of your tongue and ain't one of them the truth
I'm still desperate for you

Tell it like a lie, live it like a movie
Give a heart away like it don't mean nothin' to me
What's the use in makin' all the plans that we made if you wearen't gonna go
What's the use of slappin' on a smile for a face if your eyes don't wanna show

Desperation
There's danger in frustration
Complicated words slippin' off of your tongue and ain't one of them the truth
I'm still desperate for you

Well it's too damn bad you didn't have a chance to make me your best friend
You were too caught up giving too much help and not doin' what you should have been

Desperation
There's danger in frustration
Complicated words slippin' off of your tongue and ain't one of them the truth
I'm still desperate for you
