Sharks keep swimming off the pier underwater They're just shadows if they stop then they'll die We should try to be just like those sharks that we see We can't stay frozen in this spot Is it the way you feel that makes you still? Your body is paralyzed So, c'mon c'mon List the possibilities One: you leave your life And run away with me I know. I'm sure No need to be so demure Let's keep on talking See the way the water laps the shore See the sand slide off into the tide Dragged down deep your soul is just like the sand If you stay here just one more night Is it the way you feel that makes you still? Your body is paralyzed So, c'mon c'mon List the possibilities One: you leave your life And run away with me I know. I'm sure I checked every open door Let's list the scenarios Two: you can stay And you'll waste your life away The nights will be cold And the days will all be gray I know. I'm sure I checked every open door It's all dead ends and stiff headwinds No place for a creature like you So, c'mon c'mon List the possibilities One: you leave your life And run away with me I know. I'm sure I checked every open door Let's list the scenarios Two: you can stay And you'll waste your life away The nights will be cold And the days will all be gray I know. I'm sure I checked every open door Like three: You're not free Four: You'd abhor Five: You don't survive Six: You can't fix Seven: It's not heaven Eight: It's not great Nine: You're not fine! And ten?!

Are you back home now? Do you even care? Did you come correct Did you wash those blues Out of your hair Did you like how I Said I wouldn't stare And yet here I am Like a spotlight shined On your affairs Like a thief, he's coming in the night And turning on your lights, he's gotta lot of nerve He's stealing your dreams and he's causing a scene Got to give him what he deserves Try not to be E - motional M - ade your choice gave it a chance and now O - h I know you feel let down but T I O N A L Try not to be It wasn't all fiction Feelings you cultivate You didn't pyramid scheme Variations of the mean How much was fake From a soft landing You'd kiss him awake To a sunspot beam With friction in the seams Until it would ache Like a thief, he's coming in the night And turning on your lights, he's gotta lot of nerve He's stealing your dreams and he's causing a scene Got to give him what he deserves Try not to be E - motional M - ade your choice gave it a chance and now O - h I know you feel let down but T I O N A L Try not to be On your own For the first time you're on your own

Cynthia, have you heard? The kids got a new word It's in the dictionary and everything The years quickly have unfurled We're wandering a twilight world It passed without us even noticing My whole world is made up for you Long I have waited only for you Cynthia, do you recall Those late nights in the fall We'd speak of the universe's enigmas Cynthia, did we try our best In those stale hotel rooms I'd watch you undress Fumbling like dazed teenage lovers My whole world is made up for you Long I have waited only for you
