    Baby you try to rob me blind
    Steal the thoughts from my mind
    Get my tongue all knotted and twist-tied
    Emotions wound in a bind

    ‘Cause I’m
    Scared to live without you
    But I know if I try
    I’ll still live and die
    Still smile and cry
    Still breathe and I
    Will go on

    See that’s the nature of us
    We
    Dance to the same beat
    Without moving the same steps
    And we
    Walk the same road
    Without taking the same path
    And we
    Do the same wrongs
    Without making the same mistakes

    We’re parallel lines
    Together apart
    Like two separate heads
    That beat with one heart
    In the same chapter
    But you’re a page behind
    Then you’re quoting a passage
    I can’t even find

    We got syncronation
    Wrapped in syncopation
    Speaking the same words
    With a different intonation
    Confusing modulation
    Leading only to frustration

    So maybe we should just
    Stop
    Talking
    And start
    Listening
    And keep
    Moving
    At a slower pace
    Love is not a race

    ‘Cause I don’t know what the future holds
    And the only thing we got to do
    Is stay black and die

    But maybe we could
    Try
