Verse 1

I guess I should have known better,

Than to believe that someone could understand me.

And I could write you a letter,

Explaining all the reasons why I'm breaking free.

But every time I speak,

The fog grows thick,

And every time you speak,

I just grow weak.

Chorus

Speak, or don't speak, we're still stuck on repeat.

Words we say and don't say shackle my feet.

I pull and you push, you pull and I fall,

And I just stand there screaming through it all.

Bags packed and on the floor,

One foot out of the door,

But like a panic attack,

I just keep on coming back!

Verse 2

I guess I should have known better,

Than to believe that you wanna apologize.

And I could write you a letter,

Explaining all the reasons why I said goodbye.

But every word I say,

Leads me astray.

And every word you say,

Just makes me stay.

Chorus

Speak, or don't speak, we're still stuck on repeat.

Words we say and don't say shackle my feet.

I pull and you push, you pull and I fall,

And I just stand there screaming through it all.

Bags packed and on the floor,

One foot out of the door,

But like a panic attack,

I just keep on coming back!

Bridge

I'm terrified of what you do to me, has it ever even occurred

To you that I can't find my way out of your cloudy fields, my vision's blurred?

So I seal both our lips and I try to walk out.

But even our mutual silence starts to shout!

I run left and right, and then back into your arms.

And your smile deafens me again to the alarms.

Chorus

Speak, or don't speak, we're still stuck on repeat.

Words we say and don't say shackle my feet.

I pull and you push, you pull and I fall,

And I just stand there screaming through it all.

Bags packed and on the floor,

One foot out of the door,

But like a panic attack,

I just keep on coming back!

Chorus

Speak, or don't speak, we're still stuck on repeat.

Words we say and don't say shackle my feet.

I pull and you push, you pull and I fall,

And I just stand there screaming through it all.

Bags packed and on the floor,

One foot out of the door,

But like a panic attack,

I just keep on coming back!
