I see you across the room
Can't say hi; it's too soon
Don't know why this doesn't fit
I try and try, still I can't make it.

The world is wide, where's my corner?
Somewhere to hide, somewhere to flow from
People here are all so friendly
They smile and smile, still they can't see me.

And I thought that I'd made it so far
But I'm right back down to the, right back down to the
Down to the wire

Act your age; quit your stalling
Turn the page, heed your calling
Are you the dance or the dancer?
You ask and ask and still no answer.

And you thought that you'd made it so far
But you're right back down to the, right back down to the
Down to the wire

So come on now, blow my cover,
Bend my knees, be my Other.
There's still a place you can't take me
There are still some things you can't make me...

And we thought that we'd made it so far
But we're right back down to the wire
