Talk me down now
And get me ready
For whatever's on it's way
Running out of patience
But that smile hasn't faded
And this is one time you can't hide
That you never could decide
And you still haven't
We're still two nervous kids
Standing in the road (playing chicken)
But neither of us starts to run
Caught in the headlights when the time comes

You confuse me so elaborately
Tongues unleashing straight-laced analogies
Of how we are, and how are we
Just how are we (supposed to figure this one out?)
When there is nothing but doubt
To be sure of, this is sure to be
A tradgedy, if we can't turn this around

Let's start moving
Anywhere but where we are
Cause there's nothing here
Running out of time
I read your smile between the lines
Let's take a Sunday drive
To find out what's on your mind
Cause you mix those signals so well
Just give me a sign (I never can tell)
And it's time to decide, should we run?
We can't be caught off guard when the time comes

You riddle me so profusely
With erected excuses and untold stories
Of how it ends, don't end this now
How does this end (I don't want to find out)
So flood all these worries out
Right now, now right what's wrong
Cause without change we can't go on

You're really funny when you tell the truth, you crack me up
So baby lie to me, 'cause this is serious

We're wasting all of the moonlight's time
And the falling stars no longer shine for us

You confuse me so elaborately
Tongues unleashing straight-laced analogies
Of how we are, and how are we
Just how are we (supposed to figure this one out?)
When there is nothing but doubt
To be sure of, this is sure to be
A tradgedy, if we can't turn this around

You're really funny when you tell the truth
You crack me up
So baby lie to me, 'cause this is serious
