I can’t foresee

What you’re going to say

But everything I touch

Seems to rot away

 

I’ve got a stomach ache

That makes me know I’m right

Cold chills, my body shakes

Because you couldn’t tell me tonight

 

 

I’m waiting

Waiting for the news

That I don’t want to hear

Don’t want to know

Don’t want to take

 

 

I didn’t ask for this

I didn’t ask for this

You drew a line in the dark

But the line was too ambiguous so I questioned the mark

But I didn’t ask for this

I truly didn’t ask for…

 

Inside your mind

You’ve let me in before

I return the compliment

You show me to the door

 

Prudence calls you

And then I’m far away

Bit part, footnote

To your enlightened play

 

 

I’m waiting

Waiting for the news

That I don’t want to hear

Don’t want to know

Don’t want to take

 

 

I didn’t ask for this

I didn’t ask for this

You drew a line in the dark

But the line was too ambiguous so I questioned the mark

But I didn’t ask for this

I truly didn’t ask for this

 

 

I get real close to you and then

I realize

That I’ve lost my friend
