My friend assures me "it's all or nothing"
My friend implores me: "For one time only make an exception"
Wrap her up in a package of lies send her off to a coconut island
With the status of my emotions "Oh", She says, "You're changing."
But we're always changing
Because if you don't want to talk about it then it isn't love
But, I'm sure there's something in a shade of grey or something in between

But I am not really worried, I am not overly concerned
I am not worried

It washes her away and Anna begins to change her mind
And I'm not ready for this sort of thing
But I'm not gonna break and I'm not going to worry about it anymore
I'm not gonna worry about it anymore
But it's not all that easy so maybe I should just:
I am not worried, I've done this sort of thing before
Because I don't get no sleep in a quiet room and...
The time when kindness falls like rain
And every time she sneezes I believe it's it's love and

It's keeping me awake and Anna begins to toss and turn
Oh lord... I'm not ready for this sort of thing
Her kindness bangs a gong
It's chasing me away
Oh lord, I'm not ready for this sort of thing
