From the album Tied Tight

Lyrics

When she left I was still vibin’ on that Ben Folds song
So sure that if she sang, the birds and bees would come and sing along
But when I went to see her in that colder clime
It was pretty clear that when she sang, the songs weren’t hers and mine

We were young and we were vibin’ on that Foo Fighters song
But if we thought it out at all we’d know we had it thought out wrong
When you breathe out and I breathe you in
It’s only just a little bit of poison that you give me for my lungs to hold in (hold in)

I’m looking for a secret in the songs
That might help me hold on
Might take a while to get it right
Love ain’t as simple as a song; it don’t mean we don’t try

I had a good good love, but the whole thing stalled
Turns out I didn’t say it best when I said nothing at all
I’m breaking World Records on how fast a thing can break
Started congratulating myself when I only make a new mistake

I’m looking for a secret in the song
That might help me hold on
Might take a while to get it right
Love ain’t as simple as a song; it don’t mean we don’t try

I’m looking for a secret in the song
That might help me hold on
Might take a while to get it right
Love ain’t as simple as a song...

But we’re not coming down in chains, not going back
Not coming down in chains, we’re through with that
We’re not coming down in chains, not going back
Ain’t simple; it don’t mean we don’t try
