I hope you know why
You're taking me for a ride

I'm taking it on the chin
Protecting the parts where the anger's been
When it's deep inside

And each day my hope subsides
It's killed by your reasons why
Chalking it up to fate
What's to become of the injured hate
When it won't die

Chorus:
And though I'd like to sail away
Your eyes just drag me down
Into another stormy day
So I've got to get away

Someday I'll realize
Why you wouldn't be my bride
I wish you could take the hit
'cause your luck becomes what you make of it
But you have to try

And though I'd like to sail away
Your eyes just drag me down
Into another lonely day
Won't you save me

I'm taking it on the chin
Protecting the parts where the anger's been
When it's deep inside

Chorus
