This song is by Taking Back Sunday and appears on the album Happiness Is (2014).

When you took that ring off
Balled it in your fist
Eyes like a smoking gun
Surprised at what you did

Said, "Don't even think for a second
You're following me in
My parents are home
And so is my kid"

Just go on
In that house that you hate
That house that we bought
And failed to make

When you took that ring off
I sat there stunned
Parked out in my car
Surprised by what you'd done

The courage that that must've took left me utterly speechless
And though it came as no surprise I still couldn't believe it

You'll never be happy
You'll never be happy

But it was all for nothing
Yeah, it was all a waste
You held on tight
And for dear life
But it was all for nothing

When you took that ring off
Threw it at your feet
You didn't say a word
Much less look at me

The courage that that must've took I just could not believe it
In that moment you were perfect and it made all that bullshit seem worth it

But it was all for nothing
Yeah, it was all a waste
You held on tight
And for dear life
But it was all for nothing
Yeah, it was all a waste
You held on tight
(Held on tight and)
And for dear life
(For dear life)
But it was all for nothing
(Held on tight and
For dear life
We held on tight and
For dear life
We held on tight)

So just go on
That house that you hate
That house that we bought
And failed to make
It was all for nothing
It was all a waste

And now
You'll never be happy
Oh, you'll never be happy

'Cause it was all for nothing
Yeah, it was all a waste
We held on tight
And for dear life
But it was all for nothing
Yeah, it was all a waste
We held on tight
(Held on tight and)
And for dear life
(For dear life)
But it was all for nothing
(Held on tight and
For dear life
We held on tight)
When you took off that ring
(And for dear life)
When you took off that ring
(We held on tight)
