Taking Back Sunday – Better Homes And Gardens lyrics

When you took that ring off, balled it in your fist
Eyes like a smoking gun
Surprised at what you did
So don't even think for one second your following me in
My parents are home, so is my kid
Just go on
That house that you hate
That house that we bought and failed to make

When you took that ring off
I sat there stunned
Parked out in my car
Surprised at what you'd done
The courage that must have took left me utterly speechless
And though it came as no surprise I still couldn't believe it

You'll never be happy
You'll never be happy
But it was all for nothing
Yea it was all a waste
You held on tight and for dear life
But it was all for nothing

When you took that ring off
Threw it at your feet
You didn't say a word
Much less look at me
The courage that must have took I just couldn't believe it
In that moment you were perfect
And it made all the bullshit seem worth it

But it was all for nothing
Yea it was all a waste
You held on tight and for dear life
But it was all for nothing
Yea it was all a waste
You held on tight
(Held on tight)
And for dear life
(For dear life)
But it was all for nothing
(Held on tight and for dear life)
(We held on tight for dear life)
(We held on tight)

So just go on
That house that you hate
That house that we bought and failed to make
It was all for nothing
It was all a waste
And now you'll never be happy
Oh you'll never be happy

Cause it was all for nothing
It was all a waste
You held on tight and for dear life
But it was all for nothing
Yea it was all a waste
We held on tight
(Held on tight)
And for dear life
(And for dear life)

But it was all for nothing
(Held on tight and for dear life)
(We held on tight)
When you took off that ring
(For dear life)
When you took off that ring
(Held on tight)
