You look at me with your eyes on the floor
I know the truth, baby, you just can't hide anymore
I'll count to ten
And this time, I won�t start over again

She said, "Let's play our cards and hope for the best"
I sigh and step back, but I really just have nothin' left
Caught in the rapture,
My heart's still yours to capture
Feels like we're runnin' in circles

We were starvin' for something more
And landed face down on your floor
Put your money where your mouth is
Money where your mouth is, girl
Come around baby, just sing along
'Cause you're the whole story behind this song
You better stop breathin'
Before you stop believin', girl

I feel the time slippin' right through my hands
Remember the night we left our footprints in the sand?
Forever after
Let's start a brand new chapter

Dim the lights, darlin', step into my shoes
I'll meet you halfway, but we've really got nothing to lose
Baby, it's your call
Who's it gonna be to take the fall?

We were starvin' for something more
And landed face down on your floor
Put your money where your mouth is
Money where your mouth is, girl
Come around baby, just sing along
'Cause you're the whole story behind this song
You better stop breathin'
Before you stop believin', girl

Sorry won't always get you by
Dreams are just that until you try
With every step forward, we take two steps back
But hand in hand, we'll get back on track

We were starvin' for something more
And landed face down on your floor
Put your money where your mouth is
Money where your mouth is, girl
Come around baby, just sing along
'Cause you're the whole story behind this song
You better stop breathin'
Before you stop believin', girl

We were starvin' for something more
And landed face down on your floor
Put your money where your mouth is
Money where your mouth is, girl
