Every Minute

You’ve taken me for the fool again—why don’t I ever learn?

Lessons taught and lessons learned haven’t amounted to anything

Why do I let you walk all over me?

Sometimes the good outweighs the bad,

But when it’s all said and done I’ve cried more than I’ve smiled

Every minute that my eyes are open is a minute that I’m breathing for you

God, sometimes the pain is so intense I can’t breathe

God, sometimes the love is so intense I can’t leave

But I need to know what to do

I’ve never been good with words, but it seems you’re good with lies.
