What You Signed Up For - Jennifer Nettles Band

What if I stopped?
What if I quit?
What if I just threw up my hands and walked out on this shit?
Would you even know, know what you were missing?
Or would you want to take back those times you just talked and talked and talked and talked and never listened?

What if I tire?
Get tired of playing grown
What if I just turned on my heels, took my ball and went home?
Would you then regret all those things that you said?
Or would you stop opening your mouth before you engage your head?

What if I left all my ghosts in the past?
What if I just grabbed my guitar and stepped out on your ass?
Would you then stop playing, playing the game just to win it?
I've learned we don't want you as captain, we just want you to play in it

Did you forget who you're dealing with?
'Cause I'm the queen of in between
Just throwing it back and throwing a fit
Look at the board and let's check the score
It's one for me and none for you
Oh yes it's true, look what you signed up for

They wonder why women just want to pack up and leave
It's 'cause we're given too many grievances and no permission to breathe
So as far as I'm concerned, it's time for me to go
And if you want me you can find me
In the town that you can write me

Did you forget who you're dealing with?
'Cause I'm the girl to hold the world between the downy cradle and a raging fist
And if you ever want to settle the score
Well pack a lunch and bring it on over for the ride
Look what you signed up for

Look what you signed up for baby.....
Look what you signed up for honey.....
Look what you signed up for sugar.....
Look what you signed up for darlin'.....
