​Thorns

This song is by The Thorns and appears on the album The Thorns (2003).

Thorns, (Thorns,)
Just keep walkin' away (Just keep walkin' away)
From it all. (From it all.)
I don't have a plan
For callin' you back (For callin' you back)
Ever at all. (Ever at all.)

Thorns, (Thorns,)
Keep walkin' away (Keep walkin' away)
From it all, (From it all,)
'Cause I shouldn't have to tell you, ('Cause I shouldn't have to tell you,)
Every time I see you, (Every time I see you,)
You know I don't want you around. (You know I don't want you around.)
And I shouldn't have to tell you, (And I shouldn't have to tell you,)
Every time I see you, (Every time I see you,)
I'm gettin' sick of putting you down. (I'm gettin' sick of putting you down.)

Thorns, (Thorns,)
You keep stickin' around (You keep stickin' around)
In my side. (In my side.)
I just want to know
When you will go (When you will go)
Once you arrive. (Once you arrive.)

Thorns (Thorns)
Keep stickin' around in my side. (Keep stickin' around in my side.)

Keep hangin' around; (Keep hangin' around;)
And I'll keep walkin' away, (And I'll keep walkin' away,)
'Cause I shouldn't have to tell you, ('Cause I shouldn't have to tell you,)
Every time I see you, (Every time I see you,)
You know I don't want you around. (You know I don't want you around.)
And I shouldn't have to tell you, (And I shouldn't have to tell you,)
Every time I see you, (Every time I see you,)
I'm gettin' sick of putting you down. (I'm gettin' sick of putting you down.)

Thorns, (Thorns,)
Keep walkin' away from it all. (Keep walkin' away from it all.)
Thorns, (Thorns,)
Keep walkin' away. (Keep walkin' away.)

Ain't no talkin' to, (Ain't no talkin' to,)
No gettin' rid of you (No gettin' rid of you)
Once you've got your (Once you've got your)
Foot in the door! (Foot in the door!)

Keep hangin' around; (Keep hangin' around;)
And I'll keep walkin' away, (And I'll keep walkin' away,)
Thorns... (Thorns...)
Thorns. (Thorns.)
