Lyrics
Bad news like a sucker punch, what do you say
Air knocked out my lungs, want you to stay
When you hear something difficult, don't back away
Some people say nothing, good ones engage
Don't turn your back on me
Don't bury your head deep
Just 'cause you don't know what to say Don't turn your back on me
Don't bury your head deep
Just 'cause you don't know what to say

It's true
That it kicks you in the teeth when you are least expecting
Bad news
Oh it beats you black and blue before you see it coming

Bad news like a sucker punch, blew me away
People fill the streets like nothing has changed
Clock hands think you're lonely, don't need to say
Planes fly overhead like any old day

Don't turn your back on me
Don't bury your head deep
Just 'cause you don't know what to say Don't turn your back on me
Don't bury your head deep
Just 'cause you don't know what to say

It's true
That it kicks you in the teeth when you are least expecting
Bad news
Oh it beats you black and blue before you see it coming

Maybe I just want some words of distraction
I feel like I'm being consumed
Maybe I'm expecting the perfect reaction To pull me back

It's true That it kicks you in the teeth when you are least expecting
Bad news
Oh it beats you black and blue before you see it coming

It's true
That it kicks you in the teeth when you are least expecting
Bad news
Oh it beats you black and blue before you see it coming
