Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I've saved up enough courage

And I'll spend it now

But all for what, I ask myself

No, it doesn't feel that an answer matters

Oh, I thought I needed you to give me strength

The things I'd hoped you'd say

But as you stayed quiet, I'd just wonder

[Chorus]

Only one thing left I wished I knew

How did you have me and I only got you?

If it's all bad timing and there's no control

Not gonna do anything

You'll do everything I want from now on

[Verse 2]

When I'm with you, you change your voice, you change your face

Scared to say what's wrong

But we kept going on, yeah, kept going on like

Two adult children engaged in separate play

You can run down all those days to me

Go through the whole year, but why?

[Chorus]

Only one thing left I wished I knew

How did you have me and I only got you?

If it's all bad timing and there's no control

Not gonna do anything

You'll do everything I want from now on

[Verse 3]

No-one else would be as patient

Or at least be so forgiving

I'm not curious at all that your heart was

You can talk and I might listen

Hate the words, you're sure no present

I'm done living powered by this hurt

[Chorus]

Only one thing left I wished I knew

How did you have me and I only got you?

If it's all bad timing and there's no control

Not gonna do anything

You'll do everything I want from now on
