My hands and hair smell of smoke
My tongue of old, black lust and jokes
Oh no
That have been passed through liars
Lips on to this old, weathered parchment
That has been torn to shreds

That had stated
I was there for everything
That you needed me to, to hold on

I know I didn't say enough
But I know you can't go forcing love
I know I shouldn't call you up
'Cause I'd look so desperate for your love

Got caught on calloused heels
Barefoot, undressed, and such a mess
Unprepared for the next event
You said you had to go
What happened to the boy you used to know?
Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

But I stated
I was there for everything
That you needed me for
Just hold on
Sick of how I tip-toe through problems
Looking for a way out
And around them

I know I didn't say enough
But I know you can't go forcing love
I know I shouldn't call you up
'Cause I'd look so desperate for your love

I broke someone's heart
Too bad that it happened to be my own
Come home
I can promise a better man
We can push things
Start, start fresh, introduce ourselves again
And mend all these aching battle scars

I know I didn't say enough
But who says you can't go forcing love?

I know I didn't say enough
But who says you can't go forcing love?
I know I shouldn't call you up
'Cause I'd look so desperate for your love
