  • Hit me like a shot out of the dark
    Hit me like a bolt of lighting striking
    Blinding by the lighting of a spark
    Every thing we knew before igniting

    terrified, razor wire, no time to waste
    bye bye bye bye yesterday

    And all of those misdemeanors that we fought about before
    Under the circumstances
    they don’t mean much anymore
    And all of those wicked words I said to you and you to me
    Under the circumstances
    I just want to make peace

    Springtime on the sidewalks of New York
    We were watching anthill armies fighting
    All of them so caught up in their war
    Never saw that baby carriage coming

    terrified, razor wire, no time to waste
    bye bye bye bye yesterday

    And all of those misdemeanors that we fought about before
    Under the circumstances
    they don’t mean much anymore
    And all of those wicked words I said to you and you to me
    Under the circumstances
    I just want to make peace

    And all of those misdemeanors that we fought about before
    Under the circumstances
    I don’t need to make war
    And all of those hurtful words I said to you and you to me
    Under the circumstances
    I just want to make peace Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
