You say you’re wanting more original thinking 

You're out on the dance floor, making a killing 

It’s easy to see, you’re not into me
But you find yourself still fascinating

Go and live up the good life
Go through on your heels and walk up a high wire

Maybe tonight is a place you can hide
But we know there comes a fateful morning

I shouldn’t love you, save for the sorrow
When I look upon your soul

We stay together, you say “forever”
But there’s always somewhere else you’d rather go

So take your belongings, I hope they’re enticing
Are they everything you need?

You will come running after discovering
That love is what you only get from me

You been running your mouth, talking like a good girl

But you’re always found out, baby, sooner or later

It’s an endless charade, the game that we play

Well baby, don’t look now the stakes are getting high

And you need an answer

Found your seat on the Great Lost Self Romance Disaster

Time: is your well running dry?

If you stay you’ll starve like every other.

Are you ashamed of running away,
Where are the boyfriends that you’ve had?

They gave you a smile, took you for a ride,
Never to be seen again

I shouldn’t love you, with all the tricks you do 

But how can I refuse?

You’ve got the bright-eyed wanderlust lifestyle

And I have all the things that you could use

So take your belongings, I hope they’re enticing

They’ll be nothing that you need

You’ll come running, after discovering 

Love is what you only get from me
