Lyrics

Oh, once upon a midnight dreary,
I woke with something in my head.
I couldn't escape the memory of a phone call and of what you said.
Like a gameshow contestant with a parting gift,
I could not believe my eyes
when I saw through the voice of a trusted friend who needs to humor me and tell me lies.
Yeah, humor me and tell me lies.

And I'll lie too and say I don't mind
and as we seek so shall we find.
And when you're feeling open, I'll still be here.
But not without a certain degree of fear
of what will be
with you and me.
I still can see things hopefully.

But you,
why you wanna give me a run-around?
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
when all it does is slow me down?

Shake me and my confidence
'bout a great many things.
But I've been there, I can see it cower like a nervous magician waiting in the wings.
Of a bad play where the heroes are right,
and nobody thinks or expects too much.
Hollywood's calling for the movie rights singing,
"Hey babe, let's keep in touch.
Hey baby, let's keep in touch!"

But I want more than a touch, I want you to reach me.
And show me all the things no one else can see.
So what you feel becomes mine as well
and soon if we're lucky we'd be unable to tell what's
yours and mine,
fishing's fine,
and it doesn't have to rhyme, so don't you feed me a line.

But you,
why you wanna give me a run-around?
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
when all it does is slow me down?

Tra, la, la, bombardier, this is the pilot speaking and I've
got some news for you!
It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop and there ain't a whole lot that you can do!

Oh sure, the banner may be torn and the wind's gotten colder,
perhaps I've grown a little cynical.
But I know no matter what the waitress brings I shall drink it and always be full.
Yeah, I will drink it and always be full.

Oh, I like coffee and I like tea,
like to be able to enter a final plea.
I still got this dream that you just can't shake,
I love you to the point you can no longer take.
Well, all right!
Okay, so be that way!
I hope and pray that there's something left to say!

But you,
why you wanna give me a run-around?
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
when all it does is slow me down?
Oh, now,
why you wanna give me a run-around?
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up

when all it does is slow me down?
