Off the Record


Words and Music by Brian Larsen


And you
Don't know
But I cannot tell you
I have worked
So hard
And I will
Break you apart

You don't deserve
To have it good
You don't deserve
To be understood
I'm on my way
To end the fight
But I may have
A hybrid light

I can look 
Across the room
And know that
I will be happy soon
It's been a long
Long time
And I've waited
My turn in line

CHORUS:
Off the record
You're my best
But put me on
And I won't attest
I didn't do anything wrong
I was trying to get along

Gettin' along
Try to be strong
You don't know
But you can't know me
What would you say?
And how would you feel?
If I told you
That I'm not real

That's an excuse
That you can't deny
My misunderstanding 
Of what you imply
Oh, you won't win
As long as I'm here
To hold you back
Into your fears

Gettin' along
Try to be strong
You wouldn't know
But you can't know me
Off.... the record

CHORUS

Gettin' along
Try to be strong
Who would know?
But you can't know me
You won't know 
Anymore
But if I told you
You'd know the score
You wouldn't know
If I wasn't right
You wouldn't know
If I knew the night

BRIDGE:
You do not
You know you were wrong

Gettin' along
Try to be strong
Who would know
But you can't know me
I'm gonna tell you
That you're wrong
But don't believe me
I've lied for too long
And you 
Don't know
But I cannot tell you
I have worked so hard
And I will break you apart

You don't know...
