I Want To Believe

by Radiator Hospital

You've got the softest lips in town. I spent the last few years figuring that out. I have found you there, standing with your hair in a knot, I could be the boy that you wish that you forgot. 6 O'clock on a Thursday, riding through the west side Sunshine hits my eye, by the bowling alley I swear I saw you cry. Remembering that night will never be enough, and you could be the girl that makes me swear off love.
Skipping school and kissing in your front yard, I'm not in love with you, no I just want to hold you in the dark. Make you wish you were never born. Behind the bleachers at the game that night, you know I wanted you that way. Now that I hold you in my arms so tight, I can't stand your sight. Cutting pictures of armor from magazines, we paste them to the sides of our hearts to keep them from breaking. I feel empty, I feel nervous, I don't know what to do with you. It's not that I don't want to kiss you, just that I feel nothin' when I do. So let down your hair, still wet from the rain last night. No you couldn't fall asleep. It's not that I wanna die, sometimes I just think I'm living a lie. When you wake up in the middle of the night, I won't be there when you turn on the light.
Well if the night belongs to lovers, I will have the day. Put my arms on the back of my head as you walked away. I've been lookin' at you, you ain't lookin' back. You've been playin' tricks on my heart and I'm wonderin' where your head's at. I've been asking your friends, you've been askin' my friends.
Out The Door 02:36
When my stereo breaks, who will I turn to, when love walks out the door? When my speakers blow out, who will ask me to dance? When you smile, will I feel it anymore? I try not to lose my breath, but the nights gettin' colder. You can try to play it cool, take your head off my shoulder. Your glasses got foggy, so you took 'em off. They reflected the streetlights above. Do you remember the way I looked at you? Because I do, yeah I do. You can try to resist your heart. I won't blame you. Sooner or later it will find us, and it won't matter what we do to stop this, when love walks out the door.
