Lyrics & Music

Verse 1:
Oh, once upon a midnight eerie I woke with something in my head
I couldn't escape the memory Of a phone call and of what you said
Like a game show contestant with a parting gift 
I could not believe my eyes
When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend
Who needs to humor me and tell me lies, 
yeah humor me and tell me lies
And I'll lie too and say I don't mind And as we seek so shall we find
And when you're feeling open I'll still be here 
But not without a certain degree of fear
Well, what will be with you and me I still can see things hopefully

But you Why you wanna give me a run-around?
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up?
When all it does is slow me down

Verse 2:
Shake me and my confidence About a great many things
But I've been there I can see it cower 
Like a nervous magician waiting in the wings
Of a bad play where the heroes are right 
And nobody thinks or expects too much
And Hollywood's calling for the movie rights
Singing "Hey babe, let's keep in touch", 
hey baby, let's keep in touch
But I want more than a touch I want you to reach me 
And show me all the things no one else can see
So what you feel becomes mine as well 
And soon if we're lucky we'd be unable to tell
What's yours and mine, the fishing's fine 
And it doesn't have to rhyme, so don't you feed me a line


Verse 3:
Tra la la la la bombardier, this is the pilot speaking 
I've got some news for you
It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop 
And there ain't a whole lot that you can do
Oh sure the banner may be torn and the wind's gotten colder 
Perhaps I've grown a little cynical
But I know no matter what the waitress brings
I shall drink it and always be full, yeah I will drink it and always be full
Oh I like coffee and I like tea I'd like to be able to enter a final plea
I still got this dream that you just can't shake 
I love you to the point you can no longer take
Well all right okay, so be that way 
I hope and pray that there's something left to say
