lyrics

I guess I should have tried a little bit harder
Before I went and let my anchor down
Cause here I am stranded in open water
And all my luck is running out

I never wanted this darling
But sometimes the truth is what you pay

I won’t play this tired game, I am not some lonely pawn
Who’ll partake in the defense of yet another hopeless cause
I won’t wait no longer, I won’t wait no longer
For something that’s just as good as gone

And for so long I tried to make amends
With every little moral rule you broke inside my level head
And on a checkerboard stage you’ll come on over
Bring your lust, we’ll talk it over
And do a dance of pawns and pieces every time

I never wanted this darling
But sometimes the truth is what you pay

I won’t play this tired game, I am not some lonely pawn
Who’ll partake in the defense of yet another hopeless cause
I won’t wait no longer, I won’t wait no longer
For something that’s just as good as gone
