Come on, take a step towards me So you can figure me out I've been hoping and praying for a single way To show you what I'm all about And I know, and I know this is the only way of pleasing the crowds But when this is over and done with and we walk away There should be no doubts So let's get a little closer now Let's get a little closer now You say, you say that we're all tied up And wrapped around in useless, states of mind But at the same time we're still young We have the time to realize that we were wrong Come on love run with me Get the hell out of this town So we can get a better feel for each other I'll take you, back to, when you Remembered how you used to Just live your life a little for me Take the time to let it go Step away and watch me grow So let's get a little closer now Let's get a little closer now You say, you say that we're all tied up And wrapped around in useless, states of mind But at the same time we're still young We have the time to realize that we were wrong You can stay if
you want to And I write to you and tell you how you've always been so special to me You can stay if you want to, and I'll try You can stay if you want to And I write to you and tell you how you've always been so special to me You can stay if you want to, and I'll try To keep you close to me (x3) You say, you say that we're all tied up And wrapped around in useless, states of mind But at the same time we're still young We have the time to realize that we were wrong
