lyrics

You told me once, you told me twice I don’t need you to analyze the schemes and plans that blew up in my face

I need no one to criticize, hold me down with heavy eyes, wave a wand and put me in my place

What you see is what you get, there ain’t no point in changing it, perfection she’s a busted fairytale

Do you really think that you can shake, The red apple out of the snake and build the world you visit in your dreams?

It’s my life, it’s my time been too long since I’ve felt so fine I ain’t yours to rearrange, I ain’t a puzzle or a ball and chain, so come to me without your plan, there’s no way to mend what’s not broken

If you told me once, you told me twice you can’t stare down a block of ice in the puddle floats a painful memory

I’m holding on and counting sheep, forgetting how it feels to sleep, only to face another dreary day

If you told me once you told me twice, you told me too many times, you count on me, to count on you, you’re speaking for two separate lives -

You wanna keep me in the dark, keep me by your side, keep me guessing on,until there’s no more room for you to hide

It’s my life, it’s my time been too long since I’ve felt so fine I ain’t yours to rearrange I ain’t a puzzle or a ball and chain, so come to me without your plan and I may even show you who I am
