+ TONGUE TIED

Verse 1: I get the shakes Adrenaline pumping through my veins, Taking every ounce of restraint, So I freeze I make a fist Bends at the wrist pushing nails within Digging deep into my skin Tongue in cheek

Pre-Chorus: Trying to keep my cool But you keep pushing through the roof Pouring gasoline on quite a short fuse

CHORUS: I hit a wall, it made me fall Stumbled off into the night Could barely crawl Tongue tied, sipping on rewind Reliving all the wrong words Slipping off my tongue Tongue tied, tripping on rewind Still eating all the wrong words Slipping off my tongue

Verse 2: So you push back Fueling the wrath, tug a war with words Pushing the boundaries so it hurts I wana scream

Pre-Chorus + CHORUS

Bridge: There comes a time when I think The yellings done, we’re through But then you play your wicket games And I’m screaming back at you

Refrain I get the shakes… Taking every ounce of restraint, so I freeze

CHORUS x2
