Lyrics

Give Up

Turns of phrase, twists of tongue

So much age for one so young

Whilst I wonder from whence you came

There are so few who know your name

Asymmetry, but a propos

Drawn to what we do not know

So surreal, I'll take the chance

And return that longing glance

Shit gets real, find the door

Before you feel anything more

Lights come on, take the stage

Tell the stories from that page

The one you wrote before my eyes

Inspired there between my thighs

Disappear as you arrived

Without warning, by surprise

Now all I see are recurring themes

Morbid patterns, broken dreams

Struggling to learn what it means

But it means nothing at all

It takes up space inside my head

Bleeds me dry, leaves me for dead

For all the times that it's been said

You'd think by now that I'd have given up on love

Silence is deafening, it's true

Desperately waiting for a signal to come through

Eventually you'll walk away

And lie to yourself that it's better off this way

Maybe someday I'll understand

Why nothing seems to go as planned

Starting back now at square one

For the record, it's been fun

Now all I see are recurring themes

Morbid patterns, broken dreams

Struggling to learn what it means

But it means nothing at all

It takes up space inside my head

Bleeds me dry, leaves me for dead

For all the times that it's been said

You'd think by now that I'd have given up on love
