and it's a shame you don't say things you write
everything's running time in your mind
and it's a shame you don't talk with
your mouth when you mean it
and we can sit around all day
we can go our seperate ways around and around
watch this town bring me down
i can see it in your face tonight
and i can see the way you pace around the hall
to avoid the city call
and i see the television spotlight in your eye
a penny spent alright
an afternoon alone with you make the situation right
so everything is alright and i'll hold your head instead
and i'll save your song
as steady as i broke the the line
was it something that you saide made me tired
i bought it in the glance shown across the room
and shine in my mind
canwe go out tonight? television spotlight in your eye
when we're together
