Yourself To Me

 
 

I tell you how it will be 
Then you call me cynical 
You call it a self-fulfilling prophecy 
Creating its own pinnacle 

Then you close up 
And I look down at the floor 
Pretending to agree to some degree 
Before I bail for the door 

Are you happy right now? 
Did I slow you down? 
Trading in for tender words
Instead of tender sounds 

And does he feel the ground? 
Do you believe his vows? 
Why did you ever give yourself to me? 

Will you ever get my subtle hints? 
Do I ever get yours? 
Are we two one-way streets so close to each other
That will never cross? 

And can you hear my voice? 
Do you allow me that much? 
How are we ever going to find a boiling point 
If we never make any fuss? 

Are you happy right now? 
Did I slow you down? 
Trading in for tender words
Instead of tender sounds

And does he feel the ground? 
Do you believe his vows? 
Why did you ever give yourself to me? 

Are you happy right now? 
Did I slow you down? 
Trading in for tender words
Instead of tender sounds

And does he feel the ground? 
Do you believe his vows? 
Why did you ever give yourself to me?
