We're sipping cocktails
Looking down upon the riot
You whisper, "Baby
Love the way you look tonight
I want to save you, save you
From the world outside"

I know it seems you're
All I wanted and much more
But then to tell the truth
I've been through this before
They say, "I'll save you, save you"
But they never do

I think you know
I want to believe you
But in my heart
I know that I'll leave you
It's just so sad how
Instincts deceive you
Or does it please you?

Everything you say
Makes me want to stay
But everything you've done
Makes me want to run, run, run

I'll make the decision that
I can't be with you
Walking out the door
But I already miss you
Thinking about how
I used to kiss you
I'm getting butterflies
I'm getting butterflies

I'll make the decision that
I'm too good for you
Can't you see you're calling?
It's hard to ignore you
Try to be strong
But babe, I adore you
I'm getting butterflies
I'm getting butterflies

We're back in high school
In the yard we used to fight
But you would sneak in
Through my window every night
I want to take you, take you
To the world outside

Well, I assumed it's
What I wanted at the time
(Oh, at the time)
But your eyes were like
A constant warning sign
(A warning sign)
I want to take you, take you
And I didn't mind

And even though
I didn't believe you, (no)
You had a smile
So easy to see through
I know that there's a part of me
That always needs you
Try to reach you, (what)?
Try to please you

Everything you say
Makes me want to stay
But everything you've done
Makes me want to run, run, run

I'll make the decision that
I can't be with you
Walking out the door
But I already miss you
Thinking about how
I used to kiss you
I'm getting butterflies
I'm getting butterflies

I'll make the decision that
I'm too good for you
Can't you see you're calling?
It's hard to ignore you
Try to be strong
But babe, I adore you
I'm getting butterflies
I'm getting butterflies

I know, I know, I know
We aren't good together
I can't let go, I'm sure
That we should be forever

I look around
There's no one above you
I think you know that
I'll always love you

And baby I'm bad too
It's not just you
But I can't wait
Forever to trust you

Everything you say
Makes me want to stay
But everything you've done
Makes me want to run, run, run

I'll make the decision that
I can't be with you
Walking out the door
But I already miss you
Thinking about how
I used to kiss you
I'm getting butterflies
I'm getting butterflies

I'll make the decision that
I'm too good for you
Can't you see you're calling?
It's hard to ignore you
Try to be strong
But babe, I adore you
I'm getting butterflies
I'm getting butterflies
