do you want to fall in love
or are you trying to break your own heart?
sometimes it’s hard to know the difference

do you want to take it slow
or are you trying to let it fizzle out?
time is a candle and it’s melting down

o i’ve got a feeling that there’s a spark
between our flint and tinder hearts
your house is on fire but i might hang around
build something up on that charred ground

do you want to get together
or do you want to get out of this town?
how hard would it be for you to just up and leave now?

do you think this is a good idea
or are you hoping i will change your mind
stray dog on the highway
i can't read the signs

at the edges of this four cornered night
there’s more than just comets taking flight
all your lovers are leaving but i just might
stick around; try to breathe new life into this ghost town
