Pete Yorn – Dancing In The Dark lyrics

I get up in the evening
And I aint got nothing to say
I come home in the morning
I go to bed feeling the same way
I aint nothing but tired
Man I'm just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby I could use just A little help
You can't start A fire
You can't start A fire without A spark
This guns for hire
Even if were just dancing in the dark
Message keeps getting clearer
Radios on and I'm moving round the place
I check my look in the mirror
I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
Man I aint getting nowhere just living
In A dump like this
There's something happening somewhere
Baby I just know that there is
You can't start A fire...
You sit around getting older
There's A joke here somewhere and it's on me
Ill shake this world off my shoulder
Come on baby the laughs on me
Stay on the streets of this town
And they'll be carving you up all right
They say you gotta stay hungry
Hey baby I'm just about starving tonight
I'm dying for some action
I'm sick of sitting round here trying to write
This book
I need A love reaction
Come on now baby gimme just one look
You can't start A fire sitting round crying
Over A broken heart
This guns for hire
Even if were just dancing in the dark
You can't start A fire worrying about
Your little world falling apart
This guns for hire
Even if were just dancing in the dark
Even if were just dancing in the dark...
