I know what I said but I always forget
The way that I felt at the time
I meant all the words but I’m getting’ concerned
Out of context it sounds so unkind

A piece of the puzzle or maybe a couple
Wound up in that place that’s called gone
An easy conclusion the difficult truth
Out of context the punchline is wrong

Out of context it’s no use
Out of context ain’t no proof
Out of context out of my mind
Out of context give me a sign

Without explanation it’s hard to be patient
The picture is blurry at best
We’ve ended up playin’ a telephone game
Out of context it’s full of regret

The faint conversation is fuzzy and fading
Like ships in a bottle at sea
There’s no making sense of the start or the end
Out of context it’s all Greek to me

Out of context it’s no use
Out of context ain’t no proof
Out of context out of my mind
Out of context give me a sign
