Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes
Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes

I'm sorry it took me so long
I'm sorry it took me so long (to come around)
I'm sorry it took me so long (to come around)

Your famous last words started once your fingers hit the snooze
Just nine more minutes, please..
(And they) They all know where to find me
Every word that I said, what a big mistake
And the ones you left out are keeping me away

Well I will never make another promise (without you)
I will never make another promise (with you in mind)

So pace the stairs to your apartment
Like it's where you wanna be
(where you wanna be)
It's where you wanna be
(where you wanna be)

I'm sorry it took me so long
I'm sorry it took me so long (to come around)
I'm sorry it took me so long (to come around)

Well there's a secret I've been perfecting,
I swore I wouldn't but you let me
I'm comfortably confused
(and you...) You've gotten so removed
You know I, I could take the place of those pills
Ocean blue, paint it white
Now who ya gonna call tonight?

Well I will never make another promise (without you)
I will never make another promise (with you in mind)

So pace the stairs to your apartment
Like it's where you wanna be.
(where you wanna be)
It's where you wanna be
(where you wanna be)
[x2]

We paint our sins on the ceiling
I keep them glued to my chest
It keeps me close like a promise kept
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)

If I talk in my sleep, will you just keep trying? (We paint our sins on the ceiling),
I might give it up, if you just keep trying (Well I keep them glued to my chest),
If I talk in my sleep, if I talk in my sleep, it's gone (It keeps me close like a promise kept).
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)
I'm sorry it took me so long
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)
I'm sorry it took me so long
So pace the stairs to your apartment
(Will you stop me, I just wanna know?)
(I'm sorry it took me so long)
Like it's where you wanna be
(Will you stop me, I just wanna know?)
Where you wanna be
