I'm my daddy when I drink
My mama when I cry
I'm honest when I tell the truth
And lying when I lie
And there's a lot of things that I don't do
'Cause I don't follow through like I want to
But I don't want to

The devil's begging for me time
The good Lord for my soul
I'm always easier to catch
Than I've ever been to hold
I'm a twisted rose, a tangled weed
The last thing that I need is to want you
'Cause I don't want to

[Chorus]
But that ain't what this love's about
My heart ain't on my side
And if someday it don't work out
Then we can say we tried

I'm not afraid of anything
But now I'm running scared
I know the hurt that this could bring
Is more than I could bear
I'm tired of wearing lonely shoes
I've nothing left to lose that I don't want to
But I don't want to

[Chorus]
'Cause that ain't what this love's about
My heart ain't on my side
And if someday it don't work out
Then we can say we tried

[Chorus]
That ain't what this love's about
My heart ain't on my side
And if someday it don't work out
Then we can say we tried

Yeah we can say we tried
