You go jogging and I go strolling
You map your course and take the freeway
I find back roads
And cut some short routes
Lose the time and God damn I'm lazy at this

You go dancing and I go trying
I take a wrong step and end up flying
You look embarrassed
I look my part
Awkward glances
That about sums up us

And Heaven knows
That I ain't any good at this
A crimson rose
And laughter for the first time we kissed
I don't think I hold what it takes
With this gold tie choking back my lack of wit and spunk
I need a pep talk

You go swimming and I go drowning
A huddled circle where I'm drying
I cough up water
Appear OK
So much for my 15 minutes of fame

You go talking and I fly solo
You go party, but I'm a loner
Nothing changes while clocks keep ticking
And when I'm with you I just keep fucking it up

And Heaven knows
That I ain't any good at this
A crimson rose
And laughter for the first time we kissed
I don't think I hold what it takes
With this gold tie choking back my lack of wit and spunk

You go driving and I take shotgun
Sure it's raining, but damn we have fun
We take back roads and skip the freeway
I quit dreaming
And enter my nightmare again

I need a pep talk

And Heaven knows
That I ain't any good at this
A crimson rose
And laughter for the first time we kissed
I don't think I hold what it takes
With this gold tie choking back my lack of wit and spunk
I need a pep talk
