Lyrics
Lyin' here beside you in someone else's bed
Knowin' what we're doin's wrong but better left unsaid
Your breathin' sounds like screamin'
It's all that I can stand
His ring is on your finger but my heart is in your hands

Damned if you love me
Damned if you don't
It's gettin' harder holdin' on but I can't let you go
Damned if you don't need me
Damned if you do
Oh God I wish it wasn't me standin' in these shoes
Damned
Damned

The door slams like a shotgun
You jump up to your feet
But it's just the wind that's blowin' through those secrets that we keep
Made me want to want you
God knows I need to need you
By the time this love is over I'll be sleepin' on the street

Damned if you love me
Damned if you don't
It's gettin' harder holdin' on but I can't let you go
Damned if you don't need me
Damned if you do
Oh God I wish it wasn't me standin' in these shoes

Why won't you talk to me?
Because I'm too blind to see
Why won't you look at me?
Because I'm afraid to breathe
What do you want from me?
All that I can stand
The lies are on my tongue and I can't go back
I know my soul is damned

Don't worry
I ain't gonna call you or hear you say my name
But if you see me on the streets
Don't wave
Just walk away
Our lives are gettin' twisted
Let's keep our stories straight
The more that I resist it my temptation turns to fate

Damned if you love me
Damned if you don't
It's gettin' harder holdin' on but I can't let you go
Damned if you don't need me
Damned if you do
Oh God I wish it wasn't me standin' in these shoes
Damned
Yeah I'm Damned

Damned if you love me
Damned if you don't
It's gettin' harder holdin' on but I can't let you go
Damned if you don't need me
Damned if you do
Oh God I wish it wasn't me standin' in these shoes
Damned
I'm Damned
