Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I made it

And now, there's no turning back

I know there's no depth you wouldn't sink for the chance

I'm sorry, boy

I'm not cut for this no more

[Verse 2]

You came in

Yeah, you happened to me

And so, I waited and nothing else has since

I'm sorry, boy

But I'm no good for you no more

[Chorus]

If it's your name in lights

And if the time is yours

Then, you'd be on your back

You'd be on this floor

It's the kind of night that I'd always hoped

And he's the kind of guy worth waiting for

[Verse 3]

There's always some baggage you've got to check

And yeah, I'm trying

Hope that you'd understand

I'm sorry, boy

I'm not cut for this no more

[Chorus]

If it's your name in lights

And if the time is yours

You'd be on your back

You'd be on the floor

It's the kind of night that I'd always hoped

And he's the kind of guy worth waiting for

If it's your name in lights

And if the time is yours

You'd be on your back

You'd be on this floor

It's the kind of night that I'd always hoped

And he's the kind of guy worth waiting for

[Verse 4]

There's always some baggage you've got to check

And yeah, I'm trying

Hope that you'd understand

I'm sorry, boy

I'm not cut for this no more

[Outro]

Yes, I loved you, boy

I'm not cut for this no more

Recording Details

Like almost all of the tracks on Invented, Cut was inspired by Jim looking at photo albums and then writing stories about the people in the photos including Cindy Sherman's "Untitled Film Stills" and Hannah Starkey "1997-2007."
