"The Stakes Are High" as written by and Ezra Mordechai Furman....
I dove into your heart like a pool
But there was no water in it and I felt like a fool
When I hit the concrete bottom and I broke in two
Ooh oh oh oh oh oh
Walked to the hotel through the door
But the man at the desk said you weren't staying there no more
And I felt so stupid so sorry that I called you a whore
Ooh oh oh oh oh oh

You were just doin' what you had to do
And I feel so dumb for bein' mad at you ooh
I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
My heart is full I've got no room, no room

I grew up with my family
But I didn't not want to leave and I cried like a baby
I asked, "Could I ever come back home?" and my Dad said "Maybe..."
ooh oh oh oh oh oh
So I found a new place to live
But I had trouble figuring out what's not real and what is
The big city was so crazy I could hardly even breathe
Ooh oh oh oh oh oh

And now I'm living in a fantasy
And I will always live there probably ooh
You could move in, you could move in with me
You could move in, you could move in with me
The stakes are high, the trees are green okay!

We're all just doin' what we have to do
Nothin' will ever be like it was back in 1992 no-o
And I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
My heart's real full but I'll make room, I'll make room
I'll make room, I'll make room oh-ho
Okay well, woh-oh!Woh-oh!Woh-oh!Ooh!
I got tell you that the stakes are high
and the stakes are high, the trees are green
and don't be mean and don't be mean n-n-n-n-n-no!
Woh-oh!Woh-oh!Woh! Hey! 1,2,3,4!
