Before you say you love me Joe
How am I supposed to know?
When you go under the waves
What am I supposed to say?

I see people on the floor
Aspiring to the sea
Can’t stay here anymore
We're turning into thieves

If I stay here trouble will find me
If I stay here I'll never leave
If I stay here trouble will find me
I believe

Joe I'll always think of you
As a kinder child who knew
This was never gonna last
Oh Joe you fell so fast

Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is a virtue
Don't they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is virtue
Don’t they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is virtue
Don’t they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is virtue
Don’t they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is a virtue
Don't they?

I see people on the floor
Aspiring to the sea
Can't stay here anymore
We're turning into thieves

I see you rushing now
Tell me how to reach you
I see you rushing now
What’d Harvard teach you? (repeat x5)
