lyrics

I asked you for time
And you gave me 20 minutes
Sure, my head's together now
I asked for a sign
And finally found my limit
I know you're gonna push me past it, somehow

I wanna thank you for that stolen kiss
(I want it back)
Thanks for ruining my favorite movie
(Watch it fade to black)
And thanks for loving me
Just enough to make me wanna cry
But I'm not gonna cry

I wasted a year
I guess I'll just go on singing
Let me know if I break through
I lent you an ear
Now all I hear is ringing
Go ahead and answer it
I'm sure that it's for you

Thanks for showing up unexpectedly
(I'm all right, I guess)
Wearing a shirt that was a gift from me
(Really, I'm a mess)
And thanks for loving me
Just enough to make me wanna die
But I'm not gonna die

Thanks for the song
That you wrote for me and threw away
It took all night to get it right
But it didn't stand up in the light of day
Did it sound like this?

Thank you for the broken path you took
(On and off again)
Thanks for deciding to close the book
(We're not even friends)
And thanks for loving me
Just enough to make me wanna cry
But I'm not gonna cry
You made me wanna die
But I'm not gonna!
