Lyrics

Next time
I’ll have somewhere else
To be
I’m running
Away from you
Can’t take being
Besieged

Knowing that I got some scar on you
Knowing that I held the ground to you

I’m trying
Just to see
The bigger picture – oh
Be the bigger man
Don’t hit first – resist attack
But know
I’ll hot you back

Knowing that I got some scars on you
Knowing that I held my ground to you

Knowing that I knocked you down
Knowing that I let my tongue go
I aimed and I let out my rounds
On you

Do I have to be the bigger man?

Always the better?

Forget that
Forget that
Forget that

I want to hit you back – ooh
Hit you back – yeah
Hit you back – oh
Hit you back – yeah
Hit you back

Knowing that I got some scars on you
Knowing that I held my ground to you

Knowing that I knocked you down
Knowing that I let my tongue go
I aimed and I let out my rounds
On you
