lyrics

I have this silly dream…
I don’t know the script; She sets the scene.
I get butterflies waiting in the wings…

Her double-edged sword is swift and I hone it!
She cuts to the marrow and wants atonement
We come together at a pivotal moment…

In heavy-footed haste I trip upstage!
I just want to bury my face.
I stand and deliver all my lines;
She’s laughing out loud along with the crowd!
After we’re cashed out, Her change is tendered.
She wants to forget me, but I have to remember
She waits up while I juggle my keys…
I wake numb with a bauble next to me!

I CAN’T LET IT GO! – OH MY LORD!
I’ve GOT TO LET YOU KNOW - YOU GET ME SO HIGH
But I CRASH SO HARD!

I fall like a fool, it’s all routine…
I forgot how to dance and I don’t know how to sing!
I smile like I could be your light
You know I won’t time it right…

I’m caught in a trick bag baby…
Sometimes it makes me crazy!
I don’t what you think you see
You don’t know what you do to me…

Arise and reach for Her elixir.
Fantasize where you’re gonna kiss Her…
First taste the sweet; then savor the bitter

Calamity hides in gorgeous disguise.
Tricking my heart and breaking my eyes.
Watch what happens ‘cause I can’t do it twice!

She calls my name once again…
I’m careful to bow, and save my head!
I may be shortsighted by my game is long.
Such a show-off, well the show must go on…
I’m dead serious; She’s joking around.
We work the crowd from the inside out…
I put on a spectacle ‘cause I’m so blind.
Now her outbursts are burned into my mind!

I CAN’T LET IT GO! – OH MY LORD!
I’ve GOT TO LET YOU KNOW - YOU GET ME SO HIGH
But I CRASH SO HARD!

I fall like a fool, it’s all routine…
I forgot how to dance and I don’t know how to sing!
I smile like I could be your light
You know I won’t time it right…

I’m caught in a trick bag baby…
Sometimes it makes me crazy!
I don’t what you think you see
You don’t know what you do to me…
