lyrics

Felt so useless tonight
used me up and now I’m useless

Left me here a shell
well hell, who wants a shell?

Made my statement
made my position clear,
then you dug me out and spit me out a shell.

And I can’t blame you
I could name you
Ch-ch-chances are you wouldn’t like that much.

So I silently drink you in your entirety
and still don’t have enough.

I don’t want to feel anything anymore
and that’s a good thing ‘cause I can’t.
All I wanna do is talk to you and not sound dumb
but I don’t stand a chance.

There’s nothing I can do
used me up and now I’m useless

Left me here to hold
onto the things you told me

and it’s not your fault, I built you up
and now you’re way too much to handle
to hold onto the things that

I don’t want to love about you anymore
and that’s a good thing ‘cause I can’t.
All I wanna do’s get over you but that’s just stupid
I don’t stand a chance

Ruined all my favorite songs
used them them up and now they’re useless

I played them all for you
but you were not receptive, just deceptive
in the way I thought you felt, I thought you were
well I thought wrong.
Thought I had you all along.

And I still want to try for you, try to push on through
and that’s a bad thing ‘cause I can’t.
Now those thoughts are useless
I used them up and drank them out and left me here a shell.

Well, hell, who wants a shell?
