On The Sidelines
Words and Lyrics by Samantha Schultz
© 2011 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

I give and you take but there’s no
Thanks for nothing, baby, it would work
Anyway I’m kind of crazy
But that’s just what I say to make it
Go away sadness; I can’t deal
With you, I’m so happy, but at the same
Time just tends to kill me
‘Cause all I do is think of you

But you take it from me
You take it from everyone
What you want, what you need to get by
‘Cause you don’t care
You don’t care about anyone
I can’t believe how many times I’ve tried
Baby, you’re gonna crash and burn
When you see that you’re not the center of the world
So I’m gonna step aside
‘Cause I’m not meant to wait here on the sidelines

I try to walk away but you pull me
Back when times were simple, there were
Heart attacks are what you give me
What can I do?
‘Cause all I want is you


And I know that you know that I’m not invisible
And I know that you know that loving you makes me miserable
Yet you take and you take and you take
And I break and I break
And I hate and I hate how I just can’t get over you
I just can’t get over you


But I’m here on the sidelines
