Well I always get my hopes up a palm's length too high.
With every step I get closer, I'm still stuck one step behind.
Yeah, but we're just too good at never getting our timing right.
So for right now I'll have to keep putting my loving on standby...

'Cause as much as you lead, you know that I'll follow.
If today you come running, I know that tomorrow,
You could walk away from me in a second flat,
But if I ever left you I'd always come back.
'Cause I'm that kind of woman and you're that kind of man.

It's a long lonesome circle of us coming and staying
And going our opposite ways.
At least the quiet nights are easier than these sunny empty days.
'Cause at least when I'm sleeping I can dream of you keeping me safe,
Or of a Someday so far that when I asked you you'd finally stay.


'Cause I'm that kind of woman and you're that kind of man.
