I'd never call this an unpleasant situation
I'd never teach you how to lie
But sometimes I have been walking numb
And I must catch myself before I cry
Before I cry

I never call anything ugly
I never call anything strange and alone
I never want to take things lightly
Like they have never been my own

Oh, don't, now I haven't heard it yet
Oh, don't, I haven't heard
But I know them and they are inclined to see
Just who is and isn't a lover in the city

I always thought I would be star bright
I always thought you'd feel it too
But sometimes I have been making conversation
And I must catch myself before I'm down
I'm down on you

I never think they would be scaring me
Sacred couples in this cold
They look so fine in their eagerness
I wonder to myself just how they know

Oh, don't, now I haven't heard it yet
Oh, don't, I haven't heard
But I know them and they are inclined to see
Just who is and isn't a lover in the city

I swear
I'm staking out the whole world
I swear
I'm staking out the whole world
I'm staking out the whole world

I could never entertain you
I'd be far too scared to try
But sometimes I have been talking dumb
And I forget myself and don't ask why

Oh, don't, now I haven't heard it yet
Oh, don't, I haven't heard
But I know them and they are inclined to see
Just who is and isn't a lover in the city
