There are a lot of things you never say
I read between the lines
I admit at times I've been unclear
I'm coming clean
This time next year

They say the more you love
The less you know
And there are places we should never go
And things I should not have to know about


Call it in the air
Stop pretending like you care
Just take it all
Or leave it there
But just call it in the air

We were stuck together
Like two kids caught in a fire
We were stubborn
Or too stupid
Or too scared
To get out
So what can I say?
What can I say?
I can't think of one good reason
To get up and walk away

Call it in the air
Stop pretending like you care
Just take it all
Or leave it there
But just call it in the air

You're so in love
But can't commit

You're so in love
But can't commit

Call it in the air
Stop pretending like you care
Just take it all
Or leave it there
But just call it in the air

    General CommentAt some points his voice reminds me of Conor Oberst's. I can't say I don't like it.

    The guy I like can't make up his fucking mind of whether he wants me or his old girlfriend so these lyrics are pretty justified for me by that.

    Awesome.

    General Comment"Stop pretending like you care"
    I agree with OneSecondRegrets... But this line I think isn't saying to necessarily STOP caring, but stop PRETENDING. In other words, make it REAL or STOP CARING. Either way, stop PRETENDING. Yeah, anyway, I'm sure that was obvious to you all, but I didn't get that right off the bat...

    General CommentYeah, it's about making a decision. The name of the song comes from sports, where two teammates are under a ball they have to catch. One of them has to "call it in the air" and make the decision to be the catcher, or else they'll probably collide and not catch anything.
