Music and Lyrics by Laura Mulcahy

lyrics

You say that you give
Without a second of thought
You don't take
But then I know you expect my time
What's on your mind?
You always wanna know

You say that you give
And you give and you give
You never get
A single thing in return
But where are you tonight?
You always wanna know

I'll only take up
A minute of your time
I have spent hours
Composing this rhyme
If you haven't noticed
Its a little unfair
That you say you give and give
But you take and take and take

If you wanna stay
Slow down darling
Stop driving me away
I'll leave today
If I don't get the chance to take a breath on my own
It's not a question
I'm making a statement
I don't owe you anything

You made a mistake
Just don’t make it again
I let it go
For the last of a hundred times
I swore to myself
I won't play this game

I’ve been walked over too many times to
remember
I won’t take it
I know that you know
You don't get one last try

I'll only take up
A minute of your time
I have spent hours
Composing this rhyme
If you haven't noticed
Its a little unfair
That you say you give and give
But you take and take and take

If you wanna stay
Slow down darling
Stop driving me away
I'll leave today
If I don't get the chance to take a breath on my own
It's not a question
I'm making a statement
I don't owe you anything
