here it goes and this won't take long
just let me dedicate a song
to a girl who turned this boy to stone
and you know who you are
here's a hint
she dosen't have a car
or the time to be in love with me

why did you say
this feeling has to stay
left me to wait for so long
you don't have to stay
but i hoped you will anyway
all you did was up and go

excuse me, but this won't take long
i'm sorry for writing you this song
but just what do you think you deserve
because when you have a chance
for romance
you burned it at both ends
i guess i'm not sorry in the least

why did you say
this feeling has to stay
breaking this up for so long
you don't have to stay
but i hoped you will anyway
all you did was up and go

you don't have to go
what makes you stay we'll never know
all you do is up and go

up and go
up and go
what would make you stay
up and go
what would make you stay
i guess we'll never know
i guess we'll never know
i guess we'll never know

you don't have to stay
but i hoped you will anyway
all you did was up and go

you don't have to go
what makes you stay we'll never know
all you do is up and go

up and go
i guess we'll never know

    General Commentthis still lacks emotion that the starting line had. the new version of cheek to cheek had no emotion in the vocals and same here. sure the lyrics are emotional but there's no, no emotion behind the vocals.
