You're kicking tires, I'm sitting on the fence
Love's falling all around us and it don't make sense
How long can the two of us beat around the bush
We're right out on the edge but we need a little push

Dancing on the tightrope, wearing it thin
Instead of closing our eyes and jumping in

(chorus)
Do you want to kiss
Do you want to kiss
Do you want to kiss
You go first

You're dodging the moon and I'm playing it safe
Look what we're not doing, oh boy, what a waste
And what could be worse than never saying it at all
Is never knowing the feeling, never feeling the fall

What's it gonna take to get us both there
Can't you see what I'm suggesting, it's a double dare

(repeat chorus)

You start if you have the nerve
I'll trust my heart, but you go first

(repeat chorus)
