lyrics

You told me once, nothing’s gonna happen
You told me twice, this is the last time
So stop calling me at night

And now I don’t know what I’m supposed to do without you
‘Cause nothing clears my mind out like you do

I tried it once, didn’t think I’d like it
I tried it twice, now I’m hooked on you
But you mean nothing it’s true

And now you don’t know what you’re supposed to do without this
‘Cause nothing digs as deeps as I once did

But you’re just wasting all your time
Picking up the phone when I call at night
And it makes me feel bad
‘Cause I know I’m holding you back
The truth is I know you’re not the one
But I don’t got the guts for being alone
So I’ll just keep on playing telephone
And cutting you to the bone
I keep cutting you to the bone

I told you once, I’m sorry that I did it
I told you twice, it’s never gonna happen again
But I can’t bring it to an end
You tried it once, didn’t think you’d fall in
You tried it twice, now you’re in over your head
Wishing this never got started

And now you don’t know what you’re supposed to do with yourself
‘Cause nothing makes you feel how you once felt

And one of these days we’re gonna cut to the chase
We’ll pick up and head our separate ways
And if I ever see your face again
Girl, I hope that you’re smiling
‘Cause deep down I know I want what’s best for you
But I’m not the man you should give that to
I promise I’ll straighten out real soon
But I won’t come crying

No I won’t come crying
Like I did before
I’m sorry for lying
‘Til you can’t take anymore
And I’m sorry I got drunk and wound up at your door
What did you let me in for?
What did you let me in for?

I called you once, said baby I’ve been thinking
I called you twice and said never mind you were right
What were we thinking last night?

And now I don’t know what I’m supposed to do without you
‘Cause nothing takes the edge off like you do

about

Man in a Crowd New York, New York

We love making music and playing shows. We’re not that fond of writing third-person biographies and comparing our sound to a synthesis of indistinguishable post-genres. We hope our songs will get your feet stomping, your knees knocking, and your heart pounding – because that’s what they do for us. ... more
