lyrics

In seventeen days I could walk to you
405 hours if I pushed straight through
Through mountains, cities, valleys, and plains
Babe, I risked it all for us
So, you turned round showed me what I'm worth
Well, I guess it wasn't much

In five short months love can come undone
New Years Eve in China Town and I was already so long gone
Cause, baby, I get tired, too, fighting for it all
And I'm carrying to much weight for you
To catch you when you fall

So, take it back, take it back, take it all back
Count backwards from ten, let me start again
Before it all went bad
And give it back to me, back to me, give it back
All the love I gave
All the trust I had

In two square miles so much life exists
You can have the city, all I want is this
Cause high rise towers and subway cars don't do shit for me
And I don't need no cash or coin to let me know I'm free

In one short year, lives can pull apart
When someone only wants you once you break their heart
But I'm done with giving one more shot
When each bullet leaves a hole
And all these lies and all this talk
Has more than took it's toll

So, give it back to me, back to me, give it all back
Just breathe it in, the air is thin
The lights are turning black
And take it back, take it back, take it back
This heart that you have mangled
This backbone that you've cracked

You pretend that this is not the end
You pretend that we can still be friends
But I've given up
I've given up
I give up
