Spoon – They Never Got You lyrics

When you were calling up
Did you think everyone knew
Something unclear - to you
And where
You were thrown in a crowd
Could you believe yourself
Did you repeat yourself
'cause knowing we're here
Ah just say it again
'cause they never got you
And you never got them
Uh huh
Don't let it break
Don't let it start
Don't let em' in
Don't go to far
Cover your tracks
Cover the path to the hear
Don't let those footholds start
And let no one in
'cause they never got you
And you never got them
Uh huh
Uh huh
(said they never got you, uh huh)
Oh no
No no no no no
When you were breaking up
Aaah, now they was just, they was just wakin' up
Just wakin' up
And back, in that place where you can fall
Did it pay to play along
That's where I'm coming from
I'd rather wrote it myself
Ah, just let it be
'cause I never got them
And they never got me
Naw, never got them
And they never got me
(Ah you got to break it up, you got to make it up
They might just take it up)
(Just make it up)
(more clapping)
