Be Sensible Lyrics

by Jimmy Eat World

Let me have the keys and you can take a rest
from the lightless main street until the next
who knows what there was to see before the light turned green
there's so much hell to live

the static or the silence; don't know which is worse
the dial isn't broken; that's the way it works
to the new professionals irregular is normal
it's all in how you pray
not what needs to change

don't get comfortable
don't be sensible
swing with all you have
stop me if you can

imagine we had canvas with the midnight coat
dig our fingers in and then we'd watch the snow
maybe I need stronger meds
don't let those feelings in
I can't get closer now

matters straight across and just for me to use
but there's always another choice; another way through
the notes in progress float along over your candle song
the game is how you play
not who wears a ring

don't get comfortable
don't be sensible
swing with all you have
stop me if you can

I'm on the losing side
not every time
I'm gonna lose this love of mine
here are the words defined
but not one is mine
why are we still so afraid
the things we do deserve the rightful names

don't get comfortable
don't be sensible
swing with all you have
stop me if you can

don't get comfortable
don't be sensible
swing with all you have
stop me if you can

I'm on the losing side
not every time
I'm gonna lose this love of mine
here are the words defined
but not one is mine
why are we still so afraid
the things we do deserve the rightful names
