I'm a little inclined to quiet my mind
If I cannot see where I should go
How do you know when to let go
When to hold onto something
Soon it won't even matter
She never takes me seriously
When I forget to use the phone
Guess that I'm prone to staying alone
If I cannot find an answer
Soon we'll be together, whatever
CHORUS
But it's a little more believable when you smile
So look alive
When I see you, baby
It's a little more believable when we touch
So look alive
When I see you, baby
I'm definitely beginning to see
Why it's so hard to stay away
What can I say every day
It doesn't get easier
But soon it won't even matter
And I'm sick of this fight
Thanks and good night
I can't even keep myself awake
I'm gonna make another mistake
And turn it around on you, God
Soon we'll be together, whatever the weather
CHORUS
Brief as the winter sun
Swift as a machine gun
And loud as they scream
I think it's father time
Upset to see that I'm
Strange as it seems
Still on my knees
So beautiful, girl, how in the world
Can I convince you that it's true
What can I do to get through to you
My thoughts start to scatter
But it won't even matter
'Cause we'll be together, whatever the weather
Forever and ever
CHORUS
