I met you in the fall when dark was closing in
When darkness came to pass the light shown brightly in
On we who knew that all along it had to end
The summer sees our dusk right as we begin

I don't wanna be a wrench in your gears
I just wanna be
I don't wanna be another spoke in your wheel
Do you know what i mean?

Now it appears the time we go our separate ways
In truth i wish sometimes we'd forego those plans you made
It's unacceptable to me that nothing can be done
To save two lovers from impending separation

I don't wanna be a wrench in your gears
I just wanna be
I don't wanna be another spoke in your wheel
Do you know what i mean?

This expiration date
Is driving me insaine
This expiration
Is driving me insaine

I don't want you to follow me and lose yourself
But with two thousand miles betweeen us
We'll need help
Will such a distance serve to make our love secure,
Or will it go the way so many have before?

I don't wanna be a wrench in your gears
I just wanna be
I don't wanna be another spoke in your wheel
Do you know what i mean?

This expiration date
Is driving me insaine
This expiration
Is driving me insaine
Insaine
Insaine
