So you cover up your bruises with Protection from your thickest skin You're so tough, you never hurt at all And like a child, I made my choice Pretending not to hear your voice The pounding of my heart drowns out your calm If I could turn back 13 days Everything might be okay And I wouldn't have to face myself like this So you can't control what others do And you don't know what I've been through I know the answers, but still have to ask Your resolve is iron clad I'm flailing in between two bads You can't seem to keep the past the past If I could turn back 13 days Everything might be okay And I wouldn't have to face myself like this No, not like this I should have called, I should have come To your house on that saturday I've no excuse, I've nothing left to lose Cause I've nothing without you Bury my thoughts deep down beneath Avert your eyes, Smile through my teeth Bite down on the pain Until it dissolves Into my spine Into my heart Into my blood If I could turn back 13 days Everything might be okay And I wouldn't have to face myself like this No, not like this I should have called, I should have come To your house on that saturday I've no excuse, I've nothing left to lose Cause I've nothing without you

Oh, Manda I hope you know it's me callin', Amanda It's only four in the mornin' I've done too much drinkin' and way too much thinkin' of you Oh, Manda Can you hear what I'm thinkin', Amanda Can you feel what I'm feelin' Oh, Manda Is that the phone you're ignorin'?, Amanda It's only four in the morning The radio’s on, every damn song reminds me of you I've done too much drinkin' and way too much thinkin' of you Oh Manda That's not a party you're hearin', Amanda It's just the TV is blarin', And I saw your face in a movie, today Lookin' stylish and groovy, And it's Only my heart that I'm breakin' Just my heart that I'm breakin' It's only my smile that I'm fakin' Just my smile And I... Heard a song in a movie today About the way that we were When the radio's on, Every damn song reminds me of you I've done too much drinkin' and way too much thinkin' of you And it's only my heart that I'm breakin' breakin' And it's only my smile that I'm fakin' I'm fakin' And it's only my heart that I'm breakin' breakin' And it's only my smile that I'm fakin' I'm fakin' Oh, Manda, Can you hear what I'm thinkin, Amanda, Is that the telephone ringin'? When the radio's on, Every damn song reminds me of you I've done too much drinkin' and way too much thinkin' of you Oh, Manda I hope you know it's me callin, Amanda, It's only 4 in the morning

Three a.m., and you're walkin' home with the street lights on and the headlamp's glow Half awake and you're barely alive still ya can't remember where did you go last night? Where do you go to now? You're tunin' out I'm turnin' off This show is almost over Turn the radio down I'm sick of hearin' the sound of our life's soundtrack ending, Girl Wide awake in the same old dream Like you had last night awoke in a scream All alone in the street lamp’s glow And I'm in the shadows I'm walkin' the other way Why can't you walk away? You're tunin' out I'm turnin' off This show is almost over Turn the radio down I'm sick of hearin' the sound of our life's soundtrack ending, Feelin' nothin' as you're findin' your way home Thinkin' nothin' as you're findin' your way home Feelin' nothin' as you're findin' your way home Thinkin' nothin' as you're findin' your way home Where do you go to now? You're tunin' out I'm turnin' off This show is almost over Turn the radio down I'm sick of hearin' the sound of our life's soundtrack ending, You're tunin' out I'm turnin' off This show is almost over Turn the radio down I'm sick of hearin' the sound of our life's soundtrack ending, Girl Hello and goodbye, girl

I tell a joke You roll your eyes I turn the other way and sigh You spill a drink Into my lap I get so mad, you start to... Maybe it’s better Maybe it’s better if I go It’s been such a long time It’s been such a long time since you spoke I wish you would stand up now And tell me I should stay The minute you want me to We’re back around again Every time we go a-round and around and around The carousel We’re not gaining any ground Maybe it’s better Maybe it’s better if we don’t Wait any longer Wait for the punchline to this Running joke Every time we’re on the phone You know what you want But I can’t force you to be you Too many times, we try to Figure this damn thing out And do it again And you ask me when… When are you coming home? Your heart is beating faster Every time that I call your name Your heart Every time you breathe out I wish you would stand up now and Tell me I should stay Your heart There’s you and I And no one else The world could die And we couldn’t tell You say my name I feel your skin The perfect drug I breathe you in Breathe out, Breathe in (x3) Breathe out Your heart is beating faster Every time that I call your name Your heart Every time you breathe out I wish you would stand up now and Tell me I should stay Your heart Breathe in Breathe out
