lyrics

I'm always running my mouth
The race between it and my brain
Is a race that's always won
By stupid words

I wish my legs would run the same
To clear my mind of all these stains
Of when I harmed you
Unintentionally

The guilt eats me inside
And there's nowhere I can hide

Cos recently all I've done is cause you pain
Sleepless nights, no sun, just rain
And nothing else but crying through your dreams
And recently there has been no fun and games
Just lonesome tears, and fear and pain
And nights alone - so many silent screams

I should know better

I'm always writing things down
My words are always making sense
When they're not coming
Direct out of my mouth

But I wish my mouth would be the same
And something would speed up my brain
So that I didn't have to hurt you
No more

The guilt eats me inside
And there's nowhere I can hide

Cos recently all I've done is cause you pain
Sleepless nights, no sun, just rain
And nothing else but crying through your dreams
And recently there has been no fun and games
Just lonesome tears, and fear and pain
And nights alone - so many silent screams

I should know better

And I hate that I haven't been a better friend
I know you so well, I should've known which rules to bend
But I've been tugging on the broken strings
Instead of singing with your sweet heart strings
And I'm sorry that I didn't stop myself

I'm always running my mouth
The race between it and my brain
Is a race that's always won
By stupid words

Cos recently all I've done is cause you pain
Sleepless nights, no sun, just rain
And nothing else but crying through your dreams
And recently there has been no fun and games
Just lonesome tears, and fear and pain
And nights alone - so many silent screams

I should know better
I will know better, for you
