Written by Charles Shoemake


And I keep cracking up
at every failed attempt
Sifting through the garbage of gifts
Left but not for dead
Starving when I'm fed
Dreaming of a future in bed

Chorus: If you do this right for me
I can do it right for you
If you get it wrong for me
It'll be gone for good, you see

Should I get lost?
Standing oblique
Should I get lost?
Into the bleak

Some say that it's free
But if you're asking me
You pay for everything you see
and I don't want to mean that much
But I have to in a way
Are you buying everything I say?


Lose your taste for broken hearts
It's the only way to swallow
Oh yeah
It all keeps adding up
Condescending looks
Cocktails and the arrogant hooks
and I still keep cracking up
Staring at the smoking gun
Admitting to the world it was fun

Now I found you
Nowhere I found
You now nowhere, I have found
