Dreams


Linger

 

If you, if you could return, don't let it burn, don't let it     1     .

I'm sure I'm not being     2.     , but it's just your attitude,

It's tearing me apart, It's ruining everything.

 

I swore, I swore I would be true, and honey, so did you.

So why were you holding her hand? Is that the way we stand?

Were you lying all the time? Was it just a game to you?

 

But I'm in so deep. You know I'm such a     3.     for you.

You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.

Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,

Do you have to let it linger?

 

Oh, I thought the world of you.

I thought nothing could go wrong,

But I was wrong. I was wrong.

If you, if you could get by, trying not to     4.     ,

Things wouldn't be so     5.     and I wouldn't feel so used,

But you always really knew, I just wanna be with you.

 

But I'm in so deep. You know I'm such a fool for you.

You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.

Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,

Do you have to let it linger?

 

And I'm in so deep. You know I'm such a fool for you.

You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.

Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,

Do you have to let it linger?

 

You know I'm such a fool for you.

You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.

Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,

Do you have to let it linger?
