Crowded Elevator

Album: Scream 3 Soundtrack (1999)
  • Fifteen minutes to six and fourteen floors to go
    Thirteen suited strangers make a crowded elevator slow
    And I've got a million words and phases on the tip of my tongue
    For the only non-stranger next to me, soon she'll know
    (let ?em stare)

    If I could
    I think I would give in
    And let you in on how I feel
    I need to spill
    Let it all out right now
    And expose every inch in front of them

    Twelve more floors
    And your eyes in mine are all I need to come clean
    Or should I wait until the lobby
    And spare the lives of some twenty-six nervous eyes
    Being occupied by the little red numbers passing by?
    If I wait one minute longer
    I think I will die
    (let ?em stare)

    If I could
    I think I would give in
    And let you in on how I feel
    I need to spill
    Let it all out right now
    Expose every inch in front of them

    You help me to feel, see and know why all the while I've been so inquisitive
    I can't go back ?cause now I know
    How it feels to open up and breathe Writer/s: ALEX KATUNICH, BRANDON BOYD, BRANDON CHARLES BOYD, CHRISTOPHER KILMORE, JOSE PASILLAS II, JOSE ANTHONY II PASILLAS, MICHAEL EINZIGER, MICHAEL AARON EINZIGER
