Midnight: now I get to turn into the pumpkin
I tried to dress as a man for a while.
Jack-knife: with a little cut, this Jack-o-lantern
gets to wear his idiot smile.

But baby, I thought I heard you say this could get ugly -
telling me as though I don't already know.
Baby, I couldn't give away the shadow of the thing we called romance.
I know I had my chance.

How I wish I could erase the question mark that's waiting
at the end of every caress.
Now I know the phrase too late's an understatement,
so I'll smile and confess ...


If love could save us, wouldn't we be saved?
If tears could save us, wouldn't we be saved?
If doubt could save us, wouldn't we be saved?
