The Backseat Lovers – Words I Used Lyrics

Words I Used Lyrics – The Backseat Lovers

Tell me on the phone
You know where my heart’s gone
Why I’m so withdrawn
Every word is more obscure
To my heart’s song
And I can’t hold on
(Ah)

Yesterday I wrote a little tune
I’m afraid you’ll hate the words I used
I’m sorry but it’s been weighing on me
Oh, I can’t lie when I sing
No, I can’t lie when I sing

My dear
There’s nothing left in here
So just hold on
But don’t hold on to me

Tried my best this time
To keep your hand in mine
But it’s written now
And I’m ripping out the page
And you fantasize
Of chasing lights
But you won’t get far
With half your heart at sea
And New York’s callin’
For you darling
So pack your bags
Don’t throw it all away
You know I’m fallin
From you darling
And I’m afraid
There’s no more room to stay…to stay

I’m afraid there’s nothing left to say

I still wait for you to call
Though I told you that we shouldn’t speak outside normal protocol
How could you give me your all?
Why should you wait for me at all?

‘Cause yesterday I wrote a little tune
I’m afraid you’ll hate the words I used
I’m sorry but it’s been weighing on me
Oh, I can’t lie when I sing
No, I can’t lie
