Split Screen Sadness
by John Mayer



And I don't know where you went when you left me but
It says here in the water, you must be gone by now
I can tell somehow
One hand on the trigger of the telephone
Wonderin' when the call comes
When you say it's all right. You got ya heart right.
Maybe I'll sleep inside my coat and wait on your porch
til you come back home alright .
I can't find a flight.

We share the sadness, split screen sadness
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
All you need is love is a lie cuz
We had love but we still said goodbye
now we're tired, battered fighters
And it stings when it's nobody's fault cuz there's
Nothing to blame at the drop of your name it's only
The air you took and the breath you left

So maybe I'll sleep inside my coat and
Wait on your porch til you come back home oh right
I can't find a flight

So I check the weather, wherever you are cuz I
Wanna know if you can see the stars tonight
Might be my only right (ride?)

We share the sadness, split screen sadness
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
We share the sadness, split screen sadness

I called because I just need to feel you on the line
Don't hang up this time
And I know it was me who called it over but
I still wish you'd fought me til your dying day
Don't let me get away
Cuz I can't wait to figure out what's wrong with me
So I can say this is the way that I used to be
There's no subsitute for time
Or for the sadness
Split screen sadness
We share the sadness
Split screen sadness
Oh, in the sadness it's so right, it's so right.
