Tired

You've been talking for an hour,
and I swear to God that I can't hear a word you say
So will you come to me, come to me
I get caught up and the waves of conversation they wash over me
And they cover me
They cover me

Should I just pack my things and leave
Would I be a bigger man if I built a wall around this heart
And dared you to come in
I could lie to you and say I didn't mean it
But hurts a funny thing
Makes you stronger

[chorus:]
All is nothing in moderation
It's a dirty feeling and
Well it makes you stronger
So I believe I'm just plain tired

There's a funny way your lip shakes
When I know that you've been lying,
And it touches me
I said it comforts me
Comforts me

I guess I should be satisfied
Did you say you love me half the time
I'll settle there
I can build from there
Build from there

Would you be happier if I was only half the man I am
You could shadow me and dare me to come in
I could lie to you
Say I didn't mean it
It doesn't matter
When you stop to think about it

[chorus:]
All is nothing in moderation
It's a dirty feeling and
Well it makes you stronger
So I believe I'm just plain tired

The end is coming
She don't even feel it
It's a strange sensation
I'm almost happy
Well I believe, I believe
I'm just plain tired, I'm tired
(oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Should I just pack my things and leave
Would I be a bigger man if I built a wall around this heart
And dared you to come in
I can lie to you
Say I didn't mean it
But hurts a funny thing
Hurts a funny thing

[chorus:]
All is nothing in moderation
It's a dirty feeling and
Well it makes you stronger
So I believe I'm just plain tired

The end is coming she don't even feel it
It's a strange sensation
I'm almost happy
Well I believe, I believe
I'm just plain tired
Tired

Well all is nothing in moderation
Dirty feeling, strange sensation
But I believe, I believe
Believe I'm tired
