Face 03:21
Open up Cause I’m feeling a little made up Time is straight But I feel a little complicated I’m talking to you in my sleep Like you wanted to hear everything Maybe you would get me in And you would hear everything This is what I can’t say to your face Oh Leave it in the background of today Oo This is what I can’t say to your face And now you gotta go Before I bring you down down down down Leave me here I’m feeling less obligated To tell you straight I want it to be instigated by you You know what they say about secrets They make us one Maybe I should just keep this one To my chest and hold it down This is what I can’t say to your face Oh Leave it in the background of today Oo This is what I can’t say to your face And now you gotta go Before I bring you down down down down Now you gotta go Before I bring you down down down down And I know you will see me again Back on this I know And I know that we won’t speak again Back on this I know And if you choose That I’m the one to lose, well you’re face down This is what I can’t say to your face Leave it in the background of today This is what I can’t say to your face And now you gotta go Before I bring you down down down down This is what I can’t say to your face Oh Leave it in the background of today Oo This is what I can’t say to your face And now you gotta go Before I bring you down down down down Now you gotta go Before I bring you down down down down
