It's quite safe to assume That I like you cos your perfume Reminds me of a gift I got For Christmas ninety eight Dunno what I did with mine And I can't travel back in time You're a wormhole to the past And if you want me to, I'll wait Your hair, I like your hair It's the way I'd like to wear it On the road trip we won't go on Until it's far too late It's just something that I saw When I camped outside your door You're a wormhole through and through And if you want me to, I'll wait And I worry it'll never be tomorrow The way today just keeps rolling around So if I ever kill my wishful thinking I'll be happy just to see the sun go down In your biography I'm not quite sure who I'll be It's you across my calendar; Your name by every date As I rummage through your purse I cross the days off in reverse You're such a lovely wormhole If you want me to, I'll wait I worry it'll never be tomorrow I worry if you want me to I'll wait

If I never liked you then I just saw in you A latent teenage fantasy Like you we're the one To rescue me from The pains of being seventeen Now I'm counting out my coins Wondering where they could have gone And I'm staring at my shoes Wondering how to put them on Wondering if I ever liked you What if I never liked you? I guess I'm adjusting To this adulthood thing But I can't help but feel the drag These things that I knew When I was at school What was the point if they just held me back? Now I'm counting out my coins Wondering where they could have gone And I'm staring at my shoes Wondering how to put them on Wondering if I ever liked you What if I never liked you? If I never liked you Then what did I ever like?

When you we're seven Were you a better person? Or did you just have fewer Promises to keep? Was it all in my head? I guess you never said You wanna be You wanna be with me At karaoke I was feeling kinda lonely I read your lips And watched you from afar Maybe I just had to Get close enough to you So I could hear you Say that you'll be there Maybe you don't know I'm still awake But I figured I'd not been so shy This time, for goodness sake Still I know that if I blame you You'll fall wounded to the floor But I will not be the one To hand you excuses any more We're slowing down Gonna put it to a stop right now I'm running out of things I can defend Maybe I had it right And you were worth the sleepless nights But I guess we're all worth nothing In the end I just wanted you to say that you'll be there I just want you to say that you'll be there

You've developed An almost independent need To put things in parentheses Even when you've said what you mean When you do it I take the words to heart, and then A touch of bradycardia Knocks me off my feet and to my knees Maybe if I wanted You'd embrace me like them But I'm running at twenty bpm I keep missing The signs when I am running late That say 'do not resuscitate' It's too hard not to lie to myself Maybe if I wanted You'd embrace me like them But I'm running at twenty bpm
