​Can't Take It Back

This song is by Lissie and appears on the album Back to Forever (2013).

I feel like August
I'm all hot and all bothered it's
Too late for talk
Maybe we should sleep it off
But you wanna pick
You're gonna throw 'til it sticks
Put me in my place
What'd I do now
Maybe you oughta count
To 10
Just wait it out

'Cause you might say something you'll regret

And even if you say that you're sorry
I won't forget
Even though you didn't mean it
You can't take it back
Can't take it back
Can't take it back

I feel like dirt
It's six AM and I haven't slept
I been up all night
In another endless fight
Cause you wanna poke
You gonna turn every stone
See what it reveals
It's too much of a struggle
I've seen way to much ugliness
To feel love anymore

And you keep saying things you'll regret

When all your feelings are burning
You make sure that I'm hurtling too
And you just say that you're sorry
And I, I take you back
I take you back
I take you back

Everything started so innocently
You were so gentle
So sweet
And I can't be perfect
And I can't be your girlfriend
If you can't accept me
And if you're not happy
Maybe it's not meant to be

When all your feelings are burning
You make sure that I'm hurtling too
And you just say that you're sorry
And I, I take you back
I take you back
I take you back

When all your feelings are burning
You make sure that I'm hurtling too
And you just say that you're sorry
And I, I take you back
I take you back
I take you back
