I saw you coming in the headlights
Rubbing your arms and shaking your head
You say "oh I just don't know, it's not so safe
And it gets so tiresome playing dead"
They've stolen your keys, they lifted your watch.
But you know too well, all too well
What it's like to be caught.
Fragile Handle with care
I've got to face what's never there
Influences I think I am under
They are so discouraging it seems to me
They've stolen my secret longings for you
Please can't you tell me
Is that the worst they can do?
She said, "Oh no I guess it is my fate
To live a life I can't communicate
How painful... Painful... But giving up is ok"
I go for your check I see your check has been paid.
