1.
Motivation fades The clock is ready to call it a day When a charming guest Is escorted straight to my desk With a modest request So begins the chase You live on the way back to my place Could I spare a ride? I'm overly quick to oblige Yes I'll drive you home Your home Wherever you'd like to go Yes I'll drive you home Your home I'm wanting to get to know you better A well-oiled machine We've coasted into a pleasant routine Talking all the way We always have something to say The best part of my day Making hasty plans To go hear one of our favorite bands Saved our ticket stubs It's obvious we are in love Yes I'll drive you home My home Wherever you'd like to go Yes I'll drive you home My home I'm wanting to spend the night together You kick up your feet Reclining into the passenger seat As you start to snore I quietly lock both the doors To keep you safely on board Finally set a date A ceremony to commemorate The horizon's glare The thrill of the wind in our hair Yes I'll drive you home Our home Wherever you'd like to go Yes I'll drive you home Our home I'm ready to spend our lives together.

What you said was too rude to repeat What you said made me squirm in my seat What you said was a showcase of wit What you said was a box office hit So you think that you're above me Well you're obviously high So you think that you can snub me Look me right in the eye Uh oh bang bang you're dead Shame you said what you said What you said dragged my name through the mud What you said left me thirsty for blood In your head maybe seemed innocent to you But instead what you said hurt Even more because it was true So you think that you're above me You've forgotten your place So you think that you can snub me Say the words to my face Uh oh bang bang you're dead Shame you said what you said So you think that you're above me Don't get carried away So you think that you can snub me Better watch what you say Uh oh bang bang you're dead Shame you said what you said.

What have we here? It’s not what you think I’ve had time to consider my words And nothing to drink Caught in the act With sweat on my brow I knew sooner or later you’d find out So how about now? Don’t cry for your mother Don’t curse your discovery I don’t think any less of you There’s room in my heart for two Don’t call me your lover Don’t grudge me another one You shouldn’t let it bother you There’s room in my heart for two Don’t look surprised You had to suspect I’ve got way too much time on my hands What did you expect? To let me go Would be such a waste There are plenty of other girls happy To be in your place We’re all adults There’s no need to shout We can talk later on if you want I’m busy right now So run along Now be a dear Could you turn off the lights on your way out? I’m not finished here.

You said, “I’m sorry if I misinterpreted you.” “I guess I overanalyzed.” But I’m an idiot and you were right all along It’s me who should apologize We kept the stars awake confessing everything 'Til there was nothing left to say And then you turned to me your eyes halfway to a dream What kind of man would turn away? Nobody but me I should've kissed you I should've kissed you Totally blew it I didn't do it But God I wanted to I should've kissed you I told myself when You leaned in closer Here comes my big chance But then it was over And now I miss you I should've kissed you I play that moment back a hundred different ways Each time I kick myself again You had to settle for a hug and squeeze of the hand The consolation of a friend My eyes abandoned you to chase a light in the sky An airplane flying high above I wanted so badly to tell you this isn’t me I need your love – I believe in love Despite how it seems You know this wasn’t What I was intending A tale for the ages A storybook ending.
5.
You can do better than that I won't tell anyone You can trust me You can do better than me.

I recall the first time you caught me dining alone At a restaurant on the third floor You sat down across from me with a bottle of wine Shook my hand and started to pour Then opened the window to the music below A theater under the stars We shared our life stories and a view of the stage Falling in love from afar Though it feels like they’ve played out The same act a million times A routine struggling just to keep From falling asleep reciting their lines You say this is the way we’re meant To enjoy the opera At a safe distance We’ve met at this table now ten years in a row To see the same opera performed Recreating the scene down to the slightest detail The night our tradition was born Attendance is low but still the show must go on The participants gossip offstage The waiter assures us that the wine is the same I guess it gets bitter with age Though it feels like we’ve played out The same act a million times A routine struggling just to keep From falling asleep reciting our lines Still it makes me happy I love you at a safe distance I’ll always love you at a safe distance.

Maybe tonight Maybe not for awhile The odds are not that high On any one day But I know our luck too well To just walk away Maybe tonight Maybe not for awhile It's not gambling when you know You're going to win When you and I spend time The reels start to spin Then we're busy doing nothing Immersed in a boring routine The tiniest readjustment And like a slot machine The magic is back We're like a slot machine That always pays back Maybe tonight Maybe not for awhile You know we'll strike it rich Eventually Just have a little faith In our chemistry And just as I start to wonder When payoffs are far and between We can't shake the spell we're under Then like a slot machine It's cherries and bells We're like a slot machine And everything's well The one thing in my life That always holds true I hit the jackpot when I hooked up with you.

I sing a timeless story The song about a girl A tale of tragic glory To captivate the world I don’t want to award you any undue fame So the star of this lyric doesn’t have a name I want to laugh it off but This isn’t a game I want to write a song and Sing it in your name but Who cares? I’ll recover I want to rip my heart out Throw it on the ground I want to scream your name out Just to hear the sound but Who needs another Song named after a girl The plot line is a classic Been done a million times But never so sarcastic With such ironic rhymes So I hope I get bonus points for novelty When you calculate all the time you wasted on me.

I am an outcast And it suits me fine God knows my actions Really crossed the line Each time you touch a part of me I fear that you'll break it Cause I've done something I regret And I'll never shake it A slip of the finger A mark that will linger forever Hero or villain A legacy hinges on A slip of the finger The fleeting impulse Of a maniac A flash of panic I can't take it back Kings abdicate and nations fall For smaller offences Thought I could justify it all Until I came to my senses Nothing to live for Careless in defeat Why bother looking When I cross the street? I'd promise anything to go back To when my past wasn't checkered But every key we press is part Of our permanent record One lapse of judgement Ablaze in the snarling heat of the moment That's when I lost you darling.
12.
You could torture me to tears And not leave a mark So it’s not easy for me To let down my guard When the natural thing to do Is protect myself From an overwhelming touch Crossing into pain If you’re delicate enough You can have your way But I need a safety net So you’d better not forget The rule of tickles is You’ve got to stop when I say when If you take this game too far I’ll never play with you again So watch for subtle cues ‘Cause I like you a lot Can I trust you, or not? When your fingertips explore All you feel is touch As sensations in my skin Cause my blood to rush It’s like falling deep in love With a platonic friend I can’t do it to myself It’s impossible ‘Cause I’m only sensitive When I’m vulnerable The successful hand relies On the element of surprise Laughter doesn’t always mean That I’m having fun I may laugh reflexively Before you’ve begun But you have my full consent If you’re willing to relent I’m easy to amuse ‘Cause I like you a lot Can I trust you, or not?

I've fixed my dwelling for the night Lights in pairs come passing by Where I hide I need some time now on my own Leave my loneliness alone To lick my wounds Night has found me just in time To help me close my eyes one more time Living a boy's adventure tale In so many ways For so many days Can't escape if I wanted to I may be dreaming but I feel awake I've been lost in so many places Seeked love in so many faces A change of weather, the rain pours down My head in hands, pressed to the ground And where am I supposed to go now A voice I hear Singing a lullaby for me Because of you Oh you know it's true I love you, I love you So many ways.
