Feeling worn down
Like a piece of glass
It doesn’t take too much to get yourself to feed your monkey
Tell some white lies, they can swallow them
You don’t see just how you got into this situation

Late at night,
late at night you weep for something better than the secrets you keep laying down,
Just lay down here close to me,
and tell me what you want from me.

And i said Hey now,
give me the meltdown,
take it out on me this time around,
oh no it aint over now i can feel the world spinning round and round and round

Hey now,
give me the meltdown,
take it out on me don’t let me down,
oh no it aint over now i can feel the world spinning round and round and round.

Wide awake now and your monkey’s dead
You’re so perfect that you never really need nobody
Put your hands down, you’re among your friends
You just take and take and take and take and take and take and

Late at night, late at night
You weep but your no better than the secrets you keep
Stay down, just lay down here close to me
Pretend you’re never leaving me.

  • Hi, this is the part that comes before what you have:

    Feeling worn down
    Like a piece of glass
    It doesn’t take too much to get yourself to feed your monkey
    Tell some white lies, they can swallow them
    You don’t see just how you got into this situation

    Here’s the 2nd verse:

    Wide awake now and your monkey’s dead
    You’re so perfect that you never really need nobody
    Put your hands down, you’re among your friends
    You just take and take and take and take and take and take and

    Late at night, late at night
    You weep but so no better than the secrets you keep
    Stay down, just lay down here close to me
    Pretend you’re never leaving me.

    In the second chorus its ment to be ‘but your not better than the secrets you keep’ instead of ‘but so not better’

  • secret

    I mean ‘but your no better’
