Kevin Garrett – Control lyrics

Everything's alone, it's just the way I left
I can't even trace where this other life began
Driving down the same old street,
Sometimes I forget to breathe,
But you won't ever hear me sing this one again

Far back in my memory I hear your words,
But somehow someone's poisoned me and now they're cursed
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
I would never let you go
The only way it'd work is if I were provoked

Uuh, you had control
Uuh, so long ago

As hard as you can try this heart of mine won't break,
Go ahead and knock me down,
There's so much I can take
I know that you wish me well,
But darling I can never tell
It's tricky when your love is just some cry for help

Uuh, you had control
Uuh, so long ago
Uuh, you had control
Uuh, so long ago

Our pieces lingering in my head
Like rotten leaves, you're choking me with the stench
And now I see so far down this road ahead,
It doesn't mean whatever the hell we said.
Rain is falling here on this other side of town
I'm sure that it's clear wherever you are right now
Say you don't believe in me, just so I can finally leave
'Cause you're the only thing that's keeping me around

Uuh, you had control
Uuh, so long ago
Uuh, you had control
Uuh, so long ago
