lyrics

If you don't like Reggae
Just say it.
If you don't like Metal
Then just let me know
If you're not into Folk Rock
You better tell me
But this passive-aggressive crap
Has got to go.

When I kiss you
I taste something on the tip of your tongue
When you speak
I hear a song that's waiting to be sung.

Never having fights
Is not he same as being happy.
And always giving in
Is not the same as being kind
If you disagree,
I need you to tell me
'Cuz I'm tired of trying to read
Your mind.

When I see you
I see something hiding behind those eyes
And when I touch you
What you don't say feels like a lie

But don't tell me that it's all good
When it is not all good.
And don't tell me what you think I want to hear
Just because you think you should.

A river feeds the earth as it winds down to the ocean
But first the drops of rain have to fall from the sky
I'm not a fool, I know this doesn't make you happy
And more's to the point, maybe neither do I

And when I ask you
You have got to tell me something's wrong
But if you don't really love me
Shut your mouth and play along
