I'm my daddy when I drink, my momma when I cry
I'm honest when I tell the truth and I'm lying when I lie
And there's a lot of things that I don't do
'Cause I don't follow it through likeI want to,
But I don't want to

The devil's beggin' for my time, the good Lord for my soul
I'm always easier to catch than I've ever been to hold
I'm a twisted rose, a tangled weed,
The lLast thing that I need Is to want you
'Cause I don't want to

But that ain't what this love's about
My heart ain't on my side
And if someday it don't work out
Then we can say we tried

I'm not afraid of anything but now I'm running scared
I know the hurt this could bring is more than I could bear
I'm tired of wearing lonely shoes, I've nothing left to lose
That I don't want to but I don't want to

'Cause that ain't what this love's about
My heart ain't on my side
And if someday it don't work out
Then we can say we tried

That ain't what this love's about
My heart ain't on my side
And if someday it don't work out
Then we can say we tried
Yeah, we can say we tried
