Hey Tess, I've told you this a million times before
When I can't find the keys and I can't find the door anymore
Your dress is all wet from the raining outside
You've run from him again, you can't find a place to hide

Let's stay up all night and confess to the stars
Of all the secrets that you tell me and how you've run too far
Run too far

Sometimes it's better to just sit and smile
As our life, it's passing us by
Sometimes it's better to just sit and stare
As our life, it's passing us by

Yeah, yeah, passing us by

Don't feel alarmed, Tess, don't be afraid
Of all the people you surround yourself with, they're all insane
And don't be around when the clock strikes twelve
Even if I call you out, even if I call your name
Call your name

Sometimes it's better to just sit and smile
As our life, it's passing us by
Sometimes it's better to just sit and stare
As our life, it's passing us by
As our life, it's passing us by

It's passing us by, you and me
It's passing us by, you and me
It's passing us by, you and me
It's passing us by, you and me

I can't find the sea when the fog's on Haight
I can't find you anywhere, this lonely heart
Don't be around when the clock strikes twelve
Even if I call you out, even if I call your name
If I call you out, if I call your name
