Lyrics

I've always felt so scared of all this needing
Everyone that I've met has been somewhat mistreated
That's how it feels when you know that something's wrong
Then you came along like a swan over the lake
And flew across my eyes and out into space
And I ran and I crawled and I chased to get a taste
That's what I did--OH

If there's just one thing you've got to remember
It's to write down your name and your phone number
That way you'll have it and we'll make something out of this mess
And if all else fails and the ship won't set sail
God forbid, but I guess the both of us will bail
But as far as I can tell, I think things will be swell

Have you seen me cry
Tears like diamonds?
Down and down they fly
Faster and faster
Like the speed of love
Batting a thousand
But a homerun crack at love
This is where I tell you that
I know love's what I need to work at

So now the two of us, we lie on each other
With our premonitions out in the gutter
Who would have thought that I'd make it this far?
I make it seem like I'm stronger but I'm quite the ante
And now I'm so caught up I can't escape this pattern
But when I started losing hope, there you were, there you bloomed

Have you seen me cry
Tears like diamonds?
Down and down they fly
Faster and faster
Like the speed of love
Batting a thousand
But a homerun crack at love
This is where I tell you that
I know love's what I need to work at
