lyrics

I don’t know where we are
How can it be so hard to tell if I’m still the boy you like the best of all?
We grew up together
And I always thought we’d wind up the same

But we're not the same
Don't say it's above me
I'm not a saint
You're supple and lovely
We'll find our way, just say this is something you want...

...or would you lead me there when I least expect?
We'll arch our backs and we'll bend our necks
And we won't dare to talk about what comes next
Could it be any less?
Could it be any less than the best thing?
And could it be we've both been waiting for something to break?
You can't be smart when your heart's at stake
Are we awkward for awkward's sake?
And if this is a test, did you get the best of me?

So, have we risked it all?
Would you kill me with a call?
Would you keep me up all night waiting for the things you can’t un-say?
“Your best-laid plans, just blow them away!

We can start today
All you could ask for is ours to take
If you take me on fast enough”
Fire away!
Don’t wait till the summer is gone

You say you don't know what to say
(“I say my lines and stay awake”)
I'm off the cuff, I'm on the take
But you say, "ok"
("Ok")
Come on and cut us a break!

So what would change?
I want you to touch me
We're still the same
It's not like you love me
