Lyrics

"Stare"

Dial the phone and hear a voice
There's no other option,
you've got no choice
When you're living in the 21st century
I'm glad to know she mentioned me
But how many other guys does she know?
How many must find beauty
in the same red rose?
I know I'm a downer,
but that's the way it goes
When you've learned to brace yourself
from the blows

PRE-CHORUS
If you want to talk it over
I'll be in the kitchen
Swallowing my pride
And if you think it will bring you closure
I'll be in the bedroom
Wishing that I'd die

CHORUS
'Cos love is a game
And I'm not really sure how to play
And love is a constant
It will not go away

All I've been doing
is sitting here singing the blues

VERSE 2
Sorry lover girl I'm too good for you
Can't you see all this fun
I'm having in solitude?
I don't mean to be unkind,
don't mean to be rude
But there's only so much time in a life
and can't you see I got a lot to do?
So much learn, so much to find
in a very narrow scope of time
I hope you don't mind

BRIDGE
My coldness
My lack of reception to your insinuating connection with my body
The way you coyly smile upon me
The way I pretend like an oblivious friend
That your not in the least bit fond of me
No no

PRE-CHORUS
But if you want to talk it over
I'll be in the kitchen
Swallowing my pride
And if you think it will bring you closure
I'll be in the bedroom
Wishing that I'd die

CHORUS
'Cos love is a game
And I'm not really sure how to play
And love is a constant
It will not go away
And physical connections
Go with it despite what other people say
And I'm finding it hard to disgard my morals
For just a little bit of fun today

Sorry Mr. Blues I think I"m done sitting with you...

OUTRO
I got what you want
I got what you want
I got what you want
(repeat 3x)
