  • Come on, take a step towards me
    So you can figure me out
    I've been hoping and praying for a single way
    To show you what I'm all about
    And I know, and I know this is the only way of pleasing the crowds
    But when this is over and done with and we walk away
    There should be no doubts

    So let's get a little closer now
    Let's get a little closer now

    You say, you say that we're all tied up
    And wrapped around in useless, useless states of mind
    But at the same time we're still young
    We have the time to realize that we were wrong

    Come on love run with me
    Get the hell out of this town
    So we can get a better feel for each other
    I'll take you, back to, when you
    Remembered how you used to
    Just live your life a little for me
    Take the time to let it go
    Step away and watch me grow


    So let's get a little closer now
    Let's get a little closer now

    You say, you say that we're all tied up
    And wrapped around in useless, useless states of mind
    But at the same time we're still young
    We have the time to realize that we were wrong

    You can stay if you want to
    And I write to you and tell you how you've always been so special to me
    You can stay if you want to, and I?ll try
    You can stay if you want to
    And I write to you and tell you how you've always been so special to me
    You can stay if you want to, and I?ll try

    To keep you close to me (x3)

    You say, you say that we're all tied up
    And wrapped around in useless, useless states of mind
    But at the same time we're still young
    We have the time to realize that we were wrong Publisher: TUNECORE INC

  • Cj from Lalaland, --hmm i think i downloaded this song, or maybe it was another by this band...it was called "so peter, you've become a pirate". it seemed like a weird song title but they don't mention the phrase at all in the song.
