(Fernando Garibay, Shep Solomon)

I hear the words you speak it's clearer every time
The middle, the end, the sound of every line
But do they mean a thing when defenses are stoppin' you
From saying everything that I need you to?

Do you know what it's like when it kills, it's a crime
When the one that you want is only speaking in empty rhymes
'Cause I want you, want you, want you, I've fallen over you
So don't tell me, tell me, tell me the sun will see the moon
When I need ya, need ya, need ya you make me wait in line
Just be cool tonight, don't lie

Oh, do you remember the first time when it was you and I
When lonely days and memories erased with time
And everything in front of us was ours to lose, yeah
But somewhere along the way you had to choose

Do you know what it's like when it kills, it's a crime
You tell me you want me but I don't see you standin' by
'Cause I want you, want you, want you, I've fallen over you
So don't tell me, tell me, tell me the sun will see the moon
But I need ya, need ya, need ya you make me wait in line
Just be cool tonight, don't lie (no, no)

Yeah, I thought you could be something more like the light in my life
But these barricades they get bigger and bigger time passes by
There's a web filled with holes and I can't stop myself I keep falling through
Just say anything, right now that should do

Oh, don't leave me
When you lose it

Do you know what it's like when it's gone, it's a crime
And it's so obvious but we know the truth's not kind
But I want you, want you, want you, I've fallen over you
So don't tell me, tell me, tell me the sun will see the moon
When I need ya, need ya, need ya don't make me wait in line
Just be cool tonight, don't lie
Just be cool tonight, don't lie
