All the mistakes I made I made because
I didn't know myself very well
And by this stage I feel like I really shouldn't know myself
I'm forced into a sponsored silence
Where I'm only paid if I don't say
What I want to say

Open up your eyes and see
I can't throw it all away
Open up your eyes and see
I can't give it all away

I couldn't even care what you say
Change
You change everything
Blame it on your obvious ways

I gamble my praises
And throw the jukebox from my favorite phrases
As we cling to the nightclub walls
We whisper the words

We whisper them wrong
So we screamed out the wrong words
Into our own song
And with a kiss that tasted like drugs
Which taste like we'll never ever make it home

Open up your arms and say
I can't throw it all away
Open up your arms and say
I can't give it all away

I couldn't even care what you say
Change
You change everything
Blame it on your obvious ways

Throw me around
First you've got to count me down
Don't you think you should count me down before you throw me around
You throw me into another move I can't remake

It changes everything
Open up your arms and say
Give it all away
I couldn't even care what you say

Change
You change everything
Blame it on your obvious ways
