Baby, baby
When the time comes
Can we keep it together?
Can we keep those lines
We've drawn so clearly wrong?

Baby, baby
When no one's around
Can we keep those hands to ourselves?
We'll flip it up when it all goes down

Call it
Heads or tails?
We do this till one of us fails

And I know that every word
Burns a hole in your pocket
I know that every time you reach in
You're a little bit guilty
'Cause you know you forget
And every word turns your stomach into knots
And I will keep them tied
For as long as I'd like

Well, can you keep me a secret?
Well, a secret is only as sweet
As the lips that keep it
Can you keep me alive long enough
So you know you'll survive this?

Heads or tails?
We do this till one of us fails

And I know that every word
Burns a hole in your pocket
I know that every time you reach in
You're a little bit guilty
'Cause you know you forget
And every word turns your stomach into knots
And I will keep them tied
For as long as I'd like

Can we say
Can we throw it away from the top?
And I missed it
Tell me, what did you say that you know?
This is how it goes
Can we say that it was all a waste?
And if you, if you say it, say it to my face
'Cause you know loving is leaving you

And I know that every word
Burns a hole in your pocket
I know that every time you reach in
You're a little bit guilty
'Cause you know you forget
And every word turns your stomach into knots
And I will keep them tied
For as long as I'd like (x2)

    General Commenti feel like its about an unstable relationship. like he never knows how each day is going to go its a 50/50 shot.


    also the beginning makes it seem like its a sort of forbidden love, maybe one of them is cheating. or maybe its just a secret
