Here I am with my hand back on the lever
I never thought that I could ever deceive her
But you never know until you're
Standing there yourself
Just how it feels to love somebody else
When you've tried
And you've tried and tried and tried

You've got to do what you've got to do
Roll when your heart says roll
Look to yourself and be true
Call me again when you're through

I know how hard it is to make the changes
When your life's in line
And you can't rearrange it
I'm on your side but that hasn't helped
You don't want to hurt somebody
Because you don't want to get hurt yourself

Caught in the middle and there's a door to either side
You walk through the one
But you're going to leave the other one wide
You never know when you're going
To want to slip back inside
And go the other way
When it comes another day

Now you say that you've changed your mind
You're going to try it with him
Just one more time
That's alright I've really want to say
Is that you're taking the easy way out
