Cryptic Wisdom – Give Lyrics

Give By Cryptic Wisdom

Suddenly I feel like I’ve been missing out
It’s hard to understand it but you’re different now

[Chorus]
Why’d you have to change when you left me?
My heart has been heavy, I ain’t feeling steady
I’ve been trying to move on but maybe I ain’t ready
Maybe I’m just f----- up, my love running empty

But still I give, give, give, give to you…
But still I give, give, give, give to you….

[Verse]
I gave you all of my time – You only wanted me less
Couldn’t get you off of my mind – My friends and family knew best
But I never learned to reason – Never got it through to my head
The same one bleeding me was the same one in my bed

And I see you making changes, but you wouldn’t do it for us
And we could’ve been amazing, but you wouldn’t show me no love
You’re making it look painless, and I really ain’t in no rush
But I wish that I could hate everything about you – I’m having no luck

[Pre-Chorus]
Can’t have my way like that, can’t catch a fade like that
Can’t change the way we act, can’t catch a break like that
But I wear my heart on my arm because they like that
Been in the dark for too long, bring that daylight back

In and out this fable, loving you was fatal
In the end you gave up, I don’t think I’m stable
And I feel so woozy, every night I lose sleep
Hoping I don’t lose me, look at how you do me

[Chorus]
Why’d you have to change when you left me?
My heart has been heavy, I ain’t feeling steady
I’ve been trying to move on but maybe I ain’t ready
Maybe I’m just f----- up, my love running empty

But still I give, give, give, give to you…
But still I give, give, give, give to you….

[Verse]
Why you gotta be like this? You don’t ever read my lips
Cuff my wrists, you don’t wanna be my friend, you don’t wanna be my b----
You don’t wanna see me leave, leave me be, you don’t wanna see me live
Want me stiff, you don’t wanna feel my pain, you don’t wanna need my bliss

But I gave that to you and that attitude I got back from you was too cold
Every day I had to brave it at a faster pace and I would acclimate to new lows
Now you wanna act brand new, that’s fine, doing what I did for you for another guy
I ain’t gonna lie, cuz it hurts every time that I see you doing right by another man’s side

[Pre-Chorus]
Can’t have my way like that, can’t catch a fade like that
Can’t change the way we act, can’t catch a break like that
But I wear my heart on my arm because they like that
Been in the dark for too long, bring that daylight back

In and out this fable, loving you was fatal
In the end you gave up, I don’t think I’m stable
And I feel so woozy, every night I lose sleep
Hoping I don’t lose me, look at how you do me

[Chorus]
Why’d you have to change when you left me?
My heart has been heavy, I ain’t feeling steady
I’ve been trying to move on but maybe I ain’t ready
Maybe I’m just f----- up, my love running empty

But still I give, give, give, give to you…
But still I give, give, give, give to you….

[Outro]
Suddenly I feel like I’ve been missing out
It’s hard to understand it but you’re different now
