They Never Got You Lyrics

by Spoon

You, when you were coming up
Did you think everyone knew
Something unclear to you
And when you were thrown in a crowd
Could you believe yourself?
Did you repeat yourself?
'Cause no one would hear, I'll just say it again
'Cause they never got you and you never got them

Dont let it break, dont let it start
Dont let 'em in, dont go too far
And cover your tracks
Cover the path to the heart
Dont let those footholds start
And dont let no one in
'Cause they never got you and you never got them

Don't, oh no

You, when you were breaking up
Well they was just, they was just waking up, just waking up
And back in that place where you come from
Did it pay to play along? Thats where Im coming from
Id rather roll it myself or just let it be
'Cause I never got them and they never got me
No I never got them and they never got me, oh

When you was breaking up, break out and breaking up
You gotta breaking up, oh you gotta breaking up
Hey you breaking up, you was breaking up
