You might know my name, or even where I’m from
Which way I’m headed or the reason that I run
But you’re a bad habit, one that I can’ break
I’m helplessly addicted to your game of give and take

But this time, its too far gone. What the hell am I supposed to do?
Drive around in circles trying to find my way to you
And this time, its way too late. We both said goodbye
When I didn’t have the answers to your questions, or the reasons why.
Sometimes I catch you starring, like you want something more
Than to just be noticed for the way things were before.
Your touch it always lingers on the back of my hand
You play by all the rules but still don’t seem to understand.

Just when it feels right, the situations wrong
Like there’s a missing piece, one that doesn’t quite belong
The grass is always greener, on the other side
But we’ve been down this road and it’s not worth another try.
