lyrics

When we first met I think you thought I was cool
I’d act and laugh and joke and try and play the fool
And every time I saw you was like the first day of school

Now my nose is running because you left me cold
I think you tried to call me but I couldn’t hear my phone

The messages you gave me were written in chalk
The letters splayed on brick because you wrote on the wall
Least they'll be gone tomorrow but still everyone saw

I wish I could’ve slid from the top of the slide
I’m standing by the pool waiting for you to dive
I wish that I could swim at least I tried

I have had enough
I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough of your empty words
I’ve had enough of waning with the herd
Will you tell me when the tide turns
I have had enough
I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough of you, you are absurd
I’ve had enough of you and your concerns
Will you tell me when the tide turns

If I had one wish it’s that I’d never met you
I’ll act and lie and try and pretend that you weren’t cruel
Now every time I see you is like the last day of school

You’re drawn to deceit like a moth to a flame
In a small town everyone knows your name
I know somethings will never change

I have had enough
I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough of your empty words
I’ve had enough of waning with the herd
Will you tell me when the tide turns
I have had enough
I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough of you, you are absurd
I’ve had enough of you and your concerns
Will you tell me when the tide turns
