You're feeling hounded and pushed around You want to just lay down and die If all of this life has been such a big disappointment to you Why don't you stop blaming some guy And go give the next one a try chorus But look at yourself You'll see you're still so young You haven't earned the weariness That sounds so jaded on your tongue "I'm weak" she says And blesses herself and gets into bed Clutching the covers to her throat "So punish me now and let me go back to the sham of my life" "This night is the perfect antidote for all of the poison that you wrote" chorus But look at yourself You'll see you're still so young You haven't earned the weariness That sounds so jaded on your tongue.
