Whole damn year lyrics

Ok, ok alright
I see ya!

Tryina find a way to explain this
Why you can't touch me tonight?
I can feel you're getting impatient
But I really can't let you inside.
Bad how deep the pain is,
Or you just couldn't believe
And yes, I'm good on the surface,
but I'm a mess, I'm a mess underneath
See winter took the most of my heart
The spring punched right in the stomach,
Summer came looking for blood,
And by autumn, I was left with nothing!

It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It took a whole damn year
It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It's been a bad five years!
Gonna take long long year for me to trust somebody
Gonna take long long year
Gonna take long long year for me to touch somebody
It's been a bad five years!

Not tryina do this on purpose,
Boy I really wish I could
But act like you never heard this
I know you have this misunderstood
When all I just want is to respect me,
Don't tell me you use well
I thought we were heading for Heaven,
but you're about to take me back to Hell.

See winter took the most of my heart
And spring punched right in the stomach,
Summer came looking for blood,
And by autumn, I was left with nothing!

It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It took a whole damn year
It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It's been a bad five years!
Gonna take long long year for me to trust somebody
Gonna take long long year
Gonna take long long year for me to touch somebody
It's been a bad five years!
(x2)

Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
It's been a bad five years!
