September never stays this cold
Where I come from
And you know
I'm not one for complaining,
But I love the way you'd roll
Excuses off the tip of your tongue
As I slowly fall apart (slowly, quietly, slowly)
Fall apart

This won't mean a thing come tomorrow
And that's exactly how I'll make it seem
Cause I'm still not sleeping,
Thinking I've crawled home from worse than this

So please, please (please)
I'm running out of sympathy (I'm running out of sympathy!)
And I never said I'd take this
I never said I'd take this lying down

She says
"Come on, come on, let's just get this over with [Repeat x2]
(I never said I'd take this lying down, let's just get this over with,
And I've crawled home from worse than this)
She says
"Come on, come on, let's just get this over with
She says
"Come on, come on"

You always come close but this never comes easy,
I still know everything [Repeat x3]
You always come so close
I still know everything, I still know everything, I still know

You always come close but this never comes easy [Repeat x2]
You always come, you come in close

I never said I'd take this lying down [Repeat x3]
But I've crawled home from worse than this

If it's not keeping you up nights
Then what's the point [Repeat x4]

I'm in your room
Now is this turning you on
Am I turning you on?

I'm in your room
Are you turned on?

I'm on the corner of your bed,
I'm practically naked,
Are you turned on,
Are you turned on?
