You left the motor running
But I know you're so attractive
Getting in some sharp practice
You better not do anything reckless

But everybody is going through the motions
Everybody is going through the motions
Are you really only going through the motions?

Lip service is all you'll ever get from me
Lip service is all you'll ever get from me
Lip service is all you'll ever get from me
But if you change your mind, you can send it in a letter to me

Don't make any sudden movements
These are dangerous amusements
When did you become so choosy?
Don't act like you're above me, just look at your shoes

But everybody is going through the motions
Everybody is going through the motions
Are you really only going through the motions?

Lip service is all you'll ever get from me
Lip service is all you'll ever get from me
Lip service is all you'll ever get from me
But if you change your mind, you can send it in a letter to me
But if you change your mind, you can send it in a letter to me
But if you change your mind, you can send it in a letter to me
