If you decide to laugh at me
You will be my enemy
But if you'd rather smile instead
We could be the best of friends
And if you get inside my head
I'll hold my breath til I turn red
Sleep with you in an unmade bed
And take you home with me

If you subscribe to a false belief
Reality's a road too steep
But if you stop to think it through
You'll know all that you never knew
And if I fall in love with you
You'll see that none of it was true
And as the floor is falling through
You'll fall back in with me

You're a girl
At war with herself
And you may fight and die
Or you may lay down your arms
It's time to decide

If you deign to speak to me
A model of hypocrisy
And if my words mean anything
More than just a song we sing
It might just be a passing fling
The noise that sets your ears to ring
The bird that summons in the spring
Then flies back home to me

You're a girl
At war with herself
And you may fight and die
Or you may lay down your arms
It's time to decide

You will throw that life away
And we will live to our old age
Together we will wave white flags
Surrender to our happiness
And all that time
You will be loved

You're a girl
At war with herself
And you may fight and die
Or you may lay down your arms
It's time to decide
