Lyrics

You say yes when you’re thinking no

You run at breakneck speed when you feel like moving slow

You hold it in even when you’ve got a lot to say

Oh baby all the ways you give yourself away

 

You wanna dance but you never do

Just a little too caught in what everybody thinks of you

You’ll save your chance for another day so you say

Oh baby all the ways you give yourself away

 

What do you learn waiting your turn

Knowing you give and give and never take

You won’t win playing pretend

Cause when you bend and bend you’re bound to break

 

You drive your car to the edge of town

And dream of flying so far before you turn around

And play the game what a shame that you always play

Oh baby all the ways you give yourself away
