Lyrics

3 Time's A Charm

Written By: Alicia Champion & Danielle LoPresti

V1:
Your mouth moves
I don't hear what you say
I'm busy counting the picture frames
Hanging empty on our wall
I've been the wound
You've been the salt

CHORUS:
I can't stand this every day
The shit you're feeding me is more than I can take
You leave me once
You leave me twice
If 3 times is a charm
Then get lost for good tonight

V2:
I remember how I caved
The sickening way you'd manipulate
I used to take it
I used to pray
For the guts to finally say to your pathetic face

CHORUS

Lover In Passing

Written By: Alicia Champion

V1:
We parted
And started
To find new lives
Our love was
A gift but
Short lived in time

Now you've found new company
And possibly have lost all memory of me

CHORUS:
But I can't be jealous, it makes no sense
No matter with whom you share your bed
For I was a lover in passing you see
There is nothing that ties
Nothing that ties you to me

V2:
Your love had
Contained all
The strength of four
You've moved on now
As I sit here
Alone I crave you more

But everyone I love seems to disappear
Will you just be another to leave me here?

CHORUS

Annamosity

Written By: Alicia Champion

V1:
Sitting alone
In our cold, Boston home
Going crazy with these thoughts
In my head
You're down south
Laying in her bed
Is it warmer down in Maryland instead?

And to think I'd be alright with you...

CHORUS:
Fucking someone else tonight
With your fingers running free
Leaving me with thoughts of you and
Annamosity (animosity)

V2:
Is she soft
Softer than my heart
That's given you the freedom to tear me apart
And does she kiss
Kiss you hard
Harder than it is to hide these new scars

And to think that you just might be...

CHORUS:
Fucking someone else tonight
With your fingers running free
Leaving me with thoughts of you and
And I.... (Anna...)
Cannot find where I belong
I'm caught between the right and wrong
Opening my arm to bleed with...

BRIDGE:
Animosity is all I know
As I gasp for hope
That you will see you're killing me
In this game of infidelity

And to think that you just might be...

CHORUS:
Fucking someone else tonight
With your fingers running free
Leaving me with thoughts of you and
Annamosity (animosity)
Fucking someone else tonight
With your fingers running free
Leaving me with thoughts of you and
Anna
Anna
Annamosity (animosity)
