The Back Of Your Hand Lyrics

When you give it up for gone but you're still digging in the mind
And your staring out the window saying everything will be just fine
Keepin' with whole affair every word seems out of line
No matter what angle you get - it's polished -- till it shines

Take a guess - at where I stand ---------- pick a number -- one to two
Take a look ---- at the back of your hand

Just like you know it --- you know me too
And when you say who the hell am I living with -- what just went down
Where did this come from - why are all my colors faded brown
Why did it change --- what's with the rage
Who's the dude with the extrall - what's the verse the line the chapter the page

Take a guess - at where I stand ---------- pick a number -- one to two
Take a look ---- at the back of your hand

You think you're lost without any place left to go
Like you need ----one of those kisses -- long and slow
First glance is not what it seems but there's some things that I just know
Like you take --- two sugars with a splash of cream

Your take a guess - at where I stand ------ oh take a number -- one to two
Take a look ---- at the back of your hand
Just like you know it --- you know me too
Yeah like you know it - you know me too
Just like you know it - you know me too
