about

Hey, it's that song again! Since the record ended up being shorter than I'd planned, here's a little bonus.

lyrics

Don't ask and I won't tell
It's not as if we even know them all that well
We'll talk about anything else
But it's the only time when we can be ourselves
I'll brush your hair back
You'll shoot me a look that says
"What the hell are you doing? But please do it already,
I've been waiting weeks for this"
I'll move in so close, our lips an inch apart
And then we'll go our separate ways
'cause we belong to others

Come home to bedside lights
We're dodging questions about where we've been tonight
We lie, but there's nothing to hide
As long as we don't touch, then honor's satisfied
But what's the difference? We look them in the eyes
and say "I'm forever your lover and I've forsaken all others,"
with a silent asterisk
Their arms around us, we kiss them goodnight
Our eyes are shut so tight
'cause we belong to others

How could I be such a coward?
Nobody gains from this.

You call, and I'm calling it off
I try to explain that this is not the life I want
You cry, and I'm keeping track
One weight is lifted while another
grips my shoulders and breaks my back
This should be easy, doing what is right
Thought this kind of thing was objective
But from another perspective, I just threw away my life
She lets her hair down and says "honey, come to bed"
But it's you inside my head
'Cause we belong
