Music & Lyrics by Jac Mestel


Music & lyrics by Jac Mestel

How much can we take?
How long ‘til we break?
How? How could I know
We’d have so little time
But so many minutes to grow?

Why don’t you do what you want with me?
Oh you think you can handle me?
Well, you best find yourself a new lover
Cause baby, you’re wrong
Baby you’re wrong

What more can we do?
Let time pass through?
And while your waiting find somebody else
Don’t latch on to me
Cause I want to be by myself

Oh, just take what you want from me
Oh, you think you’re in love with me
Well, put one foot in front of the other
And baby you’re gone
Baby you’re gone

For who do you stay?
I’m spent for the day
And I don’t remember how things got so far
I stopped listening
We just can’t defend who we are

You just had the last piece of me
So there’s no possibility
That we’ll find ourselves in each other
Baby we’re through
Baby we’re through
