Step up to the plate to play the game
Seem self equipped to play it safe

Step up to the plate to play the game
Seem self equipped to play it safe
And the boy’s got skills, the girl’s got notion
Smart enough but he lacks devotion
Your reasons ramble and your rhymes keep scheming
But it’s not enough so just keep on dreaming along

And I know you’ll, you’ll never make it on your own
And I know you’ll never get it right
You only take this so far, then leave it all behind
So tonight, I’m making up my mind
Before we take this too far and leave it all behind

So rise up to the occasion cause your robbing schemes,
No explanation, got minor details filling these gaps
And your memory, so just trace your footsteps
Back to where this all started, before you got yourself broken-hearted,
Now just keep it right there cause you’ll, you’ll never figure it out

And I know you’ll never get it right
You only take this so far, then leave it all behind
So tonight, I’m making up my mind
Before we take this too far and leave it all behind

Yeah, I miss you and I’m going to sing you a song tonight
And I miss you and I’m going to sing you a song
One more chance to get this right, one more chance to get it right
One more chance to get this right, so never, get it right
I know you’ll never get it right
You only take this so far, then leave it all behind (get it right)
So tonight, I’m making up my mind (get it right)
You know you make this so hard to leave it all behind

Step up to the plate to play the game
Seem self equipped to play it safe

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship?
    I'm not totally sure.
    But, there are lots of examples to back the relationship idea up in these lyrics.
