breakdown lyrics – plain white t’s

i’ve seen a man cry.
i’ve seen a man shoutout,
afraid losing the woman he loves.
i’ve seen a woman lying
to her man flat out,
’bout who she’s been with
and where she was.
i’ve seen ’em both fight,
and try to figure it out.
this fight isn’t going anywhere
i’ve seen a child’s eyes
watching his parents freak out.
i know they see him but they just don’t care.

it won’t stop if they don’t stop yelling.
it’s not the way of working your problems out.
i can’t stand being around this yelling
so i’m finding my way out.

i’m gonna drive and never ever slow down.
i’m gonna drive until i break down.
packing my things and getting out of this town.
i’m gonna drive until i break down.

i’ve seen a childs eyes.
i’ve seen him living in doubt.
not ever knowing what it’s like to be in love.
i’ve seen his friends try
just to help him get out.
he never told them what the problem really was.
i’ve seen a suicide.
he couldn’t figure it out.
he blamed himself because they couldn’t get along.
i’ve seen his parents eyes
trying to figure it out.
where did our baby go and what went wrong?

it won’t stop if they don’t stop yelling
it’s not the way of working your problems out.
i can’t stand being around this yelling
so i’m finding my way out.

i’m gonna drive and never ever slow down.
i’m gonna drive until i break down.
packing my things and getting out of this town.
i’m gonna drive until i break down.

i’m gonna drive until i break down.
hold it inside until i break down.
not gonna try until i break down.
say my goodbyes until i break down.
(baby c’mon)

i’m gonna drive and never ever slow down.
i’m gonna drive until i break down.
packing my things and getting out of this town.
i’m gonna drive until i break down.
[x2]

i’m gonna drive until i break down.
hold it inside until i break down.
