Diminishing Returns – Same Old Story lyrics

They say you're leaving, at least you're gonna try
They say you're leaving, well I guess god just closed his eyes
To the fact that you're mine
To the thought of a better way of life
Now the sound that I hear
Is of nothing but questions, nothing but my deepest fears

Oh, here we go
To the same old story, the kind that I used to know before
When the last one fell out of love (with me)
Together may be hurting you, but look what the end will do to me

They say you think you can do better, well you're crazy if it's true
You'd better wake up soon girl, cause I'm the best (the very best part of you)
An ounce of perfection is worth it's weight in gold
And I may not overflow, but I'll stick with you as we grow old

It will kill & erase everything I have worked for
And everything I had ever hoped to be

Together may be hurting you, but look what the end will do to me
