This track is all about sarcasm and impatience. I hate waiting and I get frustrated when people don't 'get' me. Well, I used to anyway.


I’m this way because I’m cold,
cold enough to know knowing does no good.
I’m this way because I’m wrong,
wrong to let it end, end the way it should.
If you’re laying down your arms, lie down and be done
because lying is what we’ll do.

Just to wait for you takes all my strength and I won’t.
Because, nobody breaks the way I do
and I don’t think I want me to

I’m this way when I wake up,
up before the dawn. It’s dawning on me now.
I’m this way because you’re not.
Not because I care. Caring is not allowed
If you’re saying you can’t take the weight of this
then, maybe, wait until I’m gone

It’s your fault I can’t stay… stay asleep inside…
Whose side did you take…taking all my time…
it’s time to be awake making up my mind

Just to wait for you takes all my strength and I won’t
Because, nobody breaks the way I do
I'm this way and you won't budge
I'll be here, you'll be fine

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
