The All-American Rejects – Straitjacket Feeling Lyrics

Back me down from backing up

Hold your breath now it’s stacking up

Etched with marks, but I can deal

And you’re the problem and you can’t feel

Try this on, straightjacket feeling

so maybe I won’t be alone

Take back now, my life you’re stealing

Yesterday was hell

But today I’m fine without you

Run away this time without you

And all I ever thought you’d be

That face is tearing holes in me again

Trust you is just one defense

off a list of others, you don’t make sense

Beg me time and time again

to take you back now, but you can’t win

Take back now, my life you’re stealing

Yesterday was hell

But today I’m fine without you

Run away this time without you

And all I ever thought you’d be

That face is tearing holes in me

but today I’m fine without you

Run away this time without you

And all the things you put me through

I’m holding on by letting go of you

And when that memory slips away

There’ll be a better view from here

And only lonesome you remains

and just the thought of you I fear

it falls away

Yesterday was hell

But today I’m fine without you

Run away this time without you

And all I ever thought you’d be

That face is tearing holes in me

but today I’m fine without you

Run away this time without you

And all the things you put me through

I’m holding on by letting go of you
