Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Come on, take a step towards me
So you can figure me out
I've been hoping and praying for a single way
To show you what I'm all about
And I know, and I know this is the only way of pleasing the crowds
But when this is over and done with and we walk away
There should be no doubts

[Pre-Chorus]
So let's get a little closer now
Let's get a little closer now

[Chorus]
You say, you say that we're all tied up
And wrapped around in useless, useless states of mind
But at the same time we're still young
We have the time to realize that we were wrong

[Verse 2]
Come on love run with me
Get the whole while out of this house
So we can get a better feel for each other
I'll take you, back to, when you
Remembered how you used to
Just live your life a little for me
Take the time to let it go
Step away and watch me grow

[Pre-Chorus]
So let's get a little closer now
Let's get a little closer now

[Chorus]
You say, you say that we're all tied up
And wrapped around in useless, useless states of mind
But at the same time we're still young
We have the time to realize that we were wrong

[Bridge]
You can stay if you want to
And I write to you and tell you how you've always been so special to me
You can stay if you want to, and I'll try
You can stay if you want to
And I write to you and tell you how you've always been so special to me
You can stay if you want to, and I'll try
To keep you close to me
To keep you close to me
To keep you close to me

[Chorus]
You say, you say that we're all tied up
And wrapped around in useless, useless states of mind
But at the same time we're still young
We have the time to realize that we were wrong
