Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Are these words working do they work for you?
Is there something wrong between us?
Is there something I can do?
Is there some way I can take back all the times you threw away?
Been burning up the decade when you should've seized the day
Verse 2
I wonder why you're talking 'cause you're talking all the time
Will you ever get the message and just leave it all behind
The conversation's trivial but trivial is fine
When held up to the light
Verse 3
Do you think my personality is written in stone?
Are you positively certain that you know what you've been shown
I'm a snapshot of the person that you think I ought to be
Now give it up! Give it up! Give it up!
Verse 4
I been the leader, I've been the follower
I've been the dreamer, I've been the wallflower
I take the high road, I take the low road
Don't wanna be your mother
Verse 5
I've been down, boys, I've been down boys
Been right to the top
When you hear me coming you can hear a pin drop
Verse 6
Didn't mean to be annoying, didn't mean to make a mess
Never meant to cast a shadow but it's leading me to stress
The shrapnel from your heart is buried in my chest
And its 'not all me
Verse 7
Do you think my personality is written in stone?
Are you positively certain that you know what you've been shown
I'm a snapshot of the person that you think I ought to be
Now give it up! Give it up! Give it up!
