Ifs, Ands, and Buts

Ifs, Ands, and Buts - John Paciga
00:00 / 00:00

Days grow colder, scars grow older

Yet the past is resurrecting

Feel the pull, the night is full of

Creatures that you've been deflecting

 

But there's always a catch

And there's always your wretched reasons not to play

 

Why can't you get of your own way?

Why can't you say what you want to say?

Why do you have to explain your emotions away?

Forcing myself to be your standby

Doing my best to be that guy

But I don't know why I even try

'Cause your ifs, ands, and buts get the best of you every time

 

Want to save me? Will you brave me?

I won't leave you hesitating

Just us two, just me and you

We've spent too much time ruminating

 

But there's always a catch

And there's always your wretched reasons not to play

 

Why can't you get of your own way?

Why can't you say what you want to say?

Why do you have to explain your emotions away?

Forcing myself to be your standby

Doing my best to be that guy

But I don't know why I even try

'Cause your ifs, ands, and buts get the best of you every time

 

I've been waiting here to be your remedy

But I'm done fading here I'm sick of your apologies

Don't come spying when you're racked by jealousy

And don't come crying when you crave my ecstasy

 

Oh, you have no alibi

Oh, you have no alibi

 

Oh, why can't you get of your own way?

Why can't you say what you want to say?

Why do you have to explain your emotions away?

Forcing myself to be your standby

Doing my best to be that guy

But I don't know why I even try

'Cause your ifs, ands, and buts get the best of you every time

'Cause your ifs, ands, and buts get the best of you every time

 

Oh, you have no alibi
