The Morning Light – Safe Bet lyrics

It was the look on your face
It gave you away, it gave you away.
It was the way that you said my name, my name.
It gave you away, it gave you away
To the time that it takes.
It gave you away.

I read you all wrong,
I thought you were a safe bet.
You were a safe bet.
I read you all wrong,
I thought you were a safe bet.
Yeah, yeah

Forced laughs, fake smiles,
Just force it out
'Cause it's all the same to them.
One time too many,
I watch you fade away

I watch you fade away
To the time it takes
And the things you say.
I know better now.
I know better now.
So turn this up and listen well,
I just needed you to know,
I just needed you to know that

I read you all wrong,
I thought you were a safe bet.
You were a safe bet.
I read you all wrong,
I thought you were a safe bet.
Yeah, yeah

I read you all wrong,
I thought you were a safe bet.
You were a safe bet.
I read you all wrong,
I thought you were a safe bet.
Yeah

She tries too much.
She doesn't smile enough.
She's got these great ideas
And no one to hear them.
I waited for you.
Why won't you just tell me?

She tries too much.
She doesn't smile enough.
She's got these great ideas
And no one to hear them.
I waited for you.
Why won't you just tell me?

Why won't you just tell me?

She tries too much.
She doesn't smile enough.
She's got these great ideas
And no one to hear them.
I waited for you.
Why won't you just tell me?

I read you all wrong,
I thought you were a safe bet.
You were a safe bet.
I read you all wrong,
I thought you were a safe bet.

Because I fell in love,
And then you mess it up,
And you'll try again.
You know it's not worth it.

Scream your lungs it's never quite enough
To get the sound across.
You know it's not worth it.

Why won't you just tell me?
