Lyrics

[Instrumental Intro]

[Verse 1]
Who left that little light on?
I thought that you were somebody else
You're the girl who dreams of diamond rings
And I'm the boy who just doesn't sleep
But we're not quite sure what that means yet

A light blinks across the water
I thought of that book you read
Of the man who longed for the love that he'd lost
And how mine was right there with me
But at the time I just couldn't see it, yeah

[Chorus]
You cut me off
You cut me off
It's not your fault
It's not your fault

[Verse 2]
Fly with me south for the winter
You're a bird you just didn't know it
But the airlines are such a pain these days
And plus it's cheaper so it seems
If you just go and use your wings

I don't know if you've got it in you
I don't know if I care
All I know is that I love to hear you talk
And I love to hear you scream
From the tops of all your trees, yeah

[Chorus]
You cut me off
You cut me off
It's not your fault
It's not your fault

[Bridge]
Oh, there is nothing to do here
Oh, there is nothing to do here
Oh, there is nothing to do here
Oh, there is nothing to do without you here

[Chorus]
You cut me off
You cut me off
It's not your fault
It's not your fault

[Outro]
Oh, there is nothing to do here
Oh, there is nothing to do without you here
