No it was never the sex with you,
It was everything else we wanted to do.
But oh how you lit a fire or two,
The day you let me touch you.

One of these nights,
I'll just be out with it.
"I love her but I love you two."
And neither of us will know what to do,
Silence will be our answer.

I give up, I give in
I'm just numb and lying here to myself all alone
Won't you come home?

You're the one night stand that'll last me the rest of my life.
The sum of my greatest parts,
My almost future wife.

And I bleed the midwest,
It's in my bones.
And I truly miss you all.
But I mostly miss that blonde-haired girl,
who tells me not to call.

I give up, I give in.
My love walked out the door and took my life it
And I hate this fucking town.

Beat me up, shoot me down
But don't you dare say nothing
when I tell you "darling," that "I love you",
At the end of every call.

Ain't you lonesome now.
Ain't you loathsome now.

I give up, I give in
Every sleight and every sin,
I gave you plenty
You never gave me any

It's all my fault and it always was
All the scars and all the broken stars
you wished on, you wished on.

Maybe some day I'll be forgiven for this,
but until then don't do you dare try and forget me
Don't forget me

I give up I give in
I hope that someday we can start again
And you'll love me like I love you.
