Blacking out - Barenaked Ladies

I'd be kidding myself to think that I'd be any use to you at all
Tell me something I don't know
Just another notch in your belt is all that I would end up being so
Tell me something I don't know

Any lesson you learn
Is gone in a moment
You know you'll probly get burned
But here you go like you own it

And you give it all that you're worth
Make it loud in hopes that you're heard
With your deepest guts just strewn and spilling out

With a little finesse I might have wound up somewhere better than the floor
Tell me something I don't know
I'm a bit of a mess but tucked in brushed off I look somewhat like before
Tell me something I don't know

Any lesson you learn
Is gone again with the moment
You call her name as she turns
You know you've already blown it

Still you give it all that you're worth
Say it loud in hopes that you're heard
With your deepest guts just strewn and spilling out

And you know that you'll never win
So you take your lumps on the chin
And you're still smilin' as you're blacking out

And you give it all that you're worth
Make it loud in hopes that you're heard
With your deepest guts just strewn and spilling out

Cause you know that you'll never win
So you drop your hands and you grin
And you're still smilin' as you're blacking out
