Story Behind the Song

"You get what you pay for" - holding back in a relationship, not wanting to let the other person in too close

Lyrics

NOTION

Do I have to tell you everything I think
Open book, broken wing
Do I have to show you
what I really want
Wounded dog, hounded heart

I'll give you an inkling
Spare you a notion
Nothing more
You get what you pay for

Please don't ask me what it's all about
Pierced from the inside out
I don't think I could say
just how it feels
Arching flower, reckless wheel

I'll give you an inkling
Spare you a notion
Nothing more
You get what you pay for

I let you pin me down more than any other
Wrestle meaning, win a lover
Promise not to kill this silent conversation
Infect it with some expectation

I'll give you an inkling
Spare you a notion
Nothing more
You get what you pay for
