They’re calling you a genius.
Is that why you’re acting so competitive.
And even if they mean it.
Don’t let the feeling get to your head.

I really wanna call you.
Never cleaned up the mess from last time we met.
The roof is gonna fall through.
I’ll stay out in the cold all alone instead.

[Chorus:]
If you think you can, reach out your hand
Like all is well and nothing changed.
I went through hell to watch you in outer-space

The wine is in the basement.
So why can’t I hide away to hibernate?
I’m sleeping through the moment.
And we’re so afraid of getting worse with age?

[Chorus:]
If you think you can, reach out your hand
Like all is well and nothing changed.
I went through hell to watch you in outer-space.

I’m so careful, I got out of the way.
I’m so grateful, just to be just to be able to say.
Won’t you give me distance?
To swallow the words you put on my plate.
And maybe then you’ll listen.
Then I can get out of this one act play.
You see me waving my white flag.
You see me waving my white flag.
Don't you ever wanna take me back?
Don’t you ever wanna take me back?
