Chorus Take the upper hand Take what makes you feel right Romantic contraband You seem to sling me every night Do you think you're grand? Never sharing in the blame Baby, you're just bland Why my songs are all the same Verse 1 I'm in love with a girl Who doesn't care if I breathe Ghosts out without giving Me a chance to grieve Pre Chorus Trying to make sense Of the future in the present tense Leaves me hanging in suspense But at what expense? Repeat Chorus Verse 2 Utters not a single word That I can believe But God I'd wanna die If she decided to leave Pre Chorus Trying to make sense Of the past in a future tense Leaves me in suspense But at what expense? Chorus Have the upper hand Take what makes you XXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXXX XX XXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XX XXXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXX X XXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXXXX X XXXXX XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX X XXXXXXX XXXXX XX XXXXX XXXXX X XXX
