No more concessions
I can’t keep losing ground
I wanted you
I wandered through the haunted half of town

A night with someone new
Is just something to do
Until you take me
Would you take me on?
If you don’t call soon
It won’t be long

But what I need now is to retrace where I’ve been
And play disc one, track eleven over and over and over again
New York had a skyline, too
But I tore it down to give to you so you’d take me
So you’d take me on
If you don’t call soon
It won’t be long
‘Till we regress
And go our separate ways

We both have our needs now
They got out of hand
The strings that you pull now
Could kill a lesser man

The lessons came too soon
So we left them out and locked ourselves in your room

So now where do we go?
It’s five years on, you’re old enough to know that I’m waiting
Turn around
I can’t keep holding out
And talking rings around the one thing that you know I’ll never say:

“Could you save me?”
Are we safe from harm?
If the worst comes soon I won’t be wrong
We lost our place
But we can take it back from covert attacks and overreactions
Oh, but it’s only until you take me
Would you take me on
Please come back soon, I won’t wait long
I’m hanging on for today
