i come to your town
like thirsty lips to a cup
i come to your town
and i wanna call you up
i don't know how you feel
but i hope you feel the same
i've broken every speed limit in your name

sometimes i just wanna bury my head in a hole
tell me do you have the kind of touch that can console?
i wanna hold my hands over my eyes during the scary scenes
will you stay with me at night and stand guard over my dreams?
will you stand guard over my dreams?

you feel like you're out on a long limb
like you've risked it all
but i'll go out there with you
and when the bough breaks
the cradle will just fall
i'd rather go down knowing what it was like
than to keep myself company
one more night
one more night

and i've got something new
something i didn't have before
you were a big dark room
a room without a door
if you will shelter me
i will fill your vacancy
we don't even need the walls, the ceiling, or the floor

and i've got something for you too
something you probably don't need
you can buy it for the pictures, baby
find out its a real good read
i just hope you still want it
'cause i'm bringing it to you
i'm gonna come to your town
i'm gonna call you up
then i don't know what i'm gonna do

you feel like you're out on a long limb
like you've risked it all
and if the bough breaks
the cradle will just fall
i'd rather go down knowing what it was like
than to keep myself company
one more night
one more night

i come to your town
like thirsty lips to a cup
i come to your town
and i'm gonna call you up
i don't know how you feel
but i hope you feel the same
i've broken every speed limit in your name

and sometimes i just wanna bury my head in a hole
tell me do you have the kind of touch that can console?
i wanna hold my hands over my eyes during the scary scenes
tell me will you stay with me at night and stand guard over my dreams?
will you stand guard over my dreams?
will you stand guard over my dreams?

    General Commentthis is such a lost-love song, the kind where you are wondering if they even have thought about you in the past year. are they the same person that used to be them?? Are they going to stand guard over your nightmares?

    General CommentI never heard but iI absloutely love the lyrics.


    and sometimes i just wanna bury my head in a hole
    tell me do you have the kind of touch that can console?
    i wanna hold my hands over my eyes during the scary scenes
    tell me will you stay with me at night and stand guard over my dreams?
    will you stand guard over my dreams?
    will you stand guard over my dreams?

    "will you stand over my drean" reads absloutely haunting but I think this song is alot about ignorance and pretending not to know what you know is gonna happen. Especially the bit about burying her head in a hole and covering her eyes during scary scenes. It sound like she wants this person to step in and do the opposite of what she knows they'll do. I mean there's a reason why she left this person in the first place. but thats the thing that's so hard about relationships. Being "thirsty" for that person even after things don't work out.
