This Is How It Goes Submit Correct Lyrics

Suddenly I can't stay in this room
You'll never sway, and I have nothing left
That I can think of to say
What do you want me to think of my thoughts?
Bear it in mind, if I cannot believe in me
Who will I then be?

And so I'll run but not too far
In case you chase me, oh

But this is how it goes, baby
I'll get angry at your words and I'll go home
And you won't call after me, yeah
'Cause I'll be back before you know, you know

So give me a toothful of that smile
And know-it-all eyes you show me
Just to prove that you don't need to lose it
You tell me I'm your fortress of desire
But is it a crime for me to say my own view
And want then not to fear you?

And so I'll run but not too far
In case you chase me

But this is how it goes, baby
I'll get angry at your words and I'll go home
And you won't call after me, yeah
'Cause I'll be back before you know, you know
Yeah, I'll be back before you know

And so I'll run but not too far

'Cause this is how it goes, baby
I'll get angry at your words and I'll go home, yeah
And then you won't call after me, yeah
'Cause I'll be back before you know, you know
Yeah, I'll be back before you know

And so I'll run but not too far
