Everclear – Separation lyrics

Wish I had the strength inside to make you go away
Wish I was immune
Ever since I met you drinking at the circle bar
I go where you will to keep from being ripped in two

I still smile when I think of 1986
You and me in that little room drunk on s**
And we'd fall asleep at every band we'd go to see
Easier to pass out then to deal with you and me alone
Sitting in the dark hearing john doe sing
About poor little girls and silver wings
Yeah baby something's gotta give

Wish I knew why you're so intent on breaking me
Act like a bitch possessed, yeah a bitch possessed
I've had it up to here with your crazy ever-changing moods
I just take your worst, while you just take my best
I've had enough, I've had enough
Yeah I need a break
You're always out screwing around while I'm hammerin' on the neighbor's door
Hoping they'll turn the led zepplin down
Yeah baby something's gotta give
Something somewhere's gotta give
Yeah baby something's gotta give
Yeah I think I need a break
Wanna break you from the inside out
That smug complacent smile is reason enough
I wanna cut the ties that bind my life
I wanna break you in your prime

Wish I had in me the power to make you disappear
Wish I had control
I just wanna walk away and never have to hear
About you, all the things you say that I don't really wanna know
Yeah, what you say, what you do, where you go
Everything I loved about you was just for show
Oh baby something's gotta give
Something somewhere's gotta give
Yeah baby something's gotta give
Yes I think we need a break
I need to separate
I need to separate from you, I need to separate...
