Just outside your town
a three hour drive
come over here
I will make it worth your while
take your time
you can't give what you haven't got
I'm the emotional kind
and apparently you're not

First comes the fire
then we go dancing on wires

Now we're done
I'm listless and overrun
Your shadow will soon be gone
but at least I know your name
and the way you would kiss me

So we fade to grey
memories do no good
your fingers slip away
faster than they should

Open all my doors
but darling, I've been here before

Now we're done
I'm listless and overrun
Your shadow will soon be gone
but at least I know your name
and the way you would kiss me

I'm not gonna stop til you ask me to

Your heart of stone
I'm waiting here by the phone

Now we're done
I'm listless and overrun
Your shadow will soon be gone
but at least I know your name
and the way you would kiss me

    General Commentsome parts of this song just gives me a feeling of one night stands.
    Your shadow will soon be gone
    but at least I know your name
    and the way you would kiss me
