sometimes I wonder what’s inside, sometimes I wonder what to hide,
sometimes I think I’d prob’ly scare you…
sometimes I wonder “what’s the truth,”
sometimes I wonder “what’s the use,”
sometimes I think it’s gonna tear me in two…

well, it’s too much like fishing and too much like shopping,
it’s too much like waiting for something that’s coming,
I don’t wanna weigh every word that I say when I’m with you…
and this isn’t a card game that someone is winning,
and it’s not a confession that someone’s been sinning,
I’m only confessing the way I feel & the way I deal with you
+++ do I make myself clear, can you see right through me?
+++ do I make myself clear, did you think you knew me?
+++ if I make myself clear, what good does it do me?…

there’s no use pretending that we’re in control here,
who’s playing a role here for whose benefit, dear?
it’s been a long time since we’ve practiced our lines
+++ and we’re bound to drop a few..

and if this is the circus, I’m not the ringmaster,
I’m more like a clown on the brink of disaster
as you ride the horses in faster and faster circles around the moon… CHORUS

sometimes it’s a newscast when we are together,
and you take the headlines, and I take the weather,
the sports or the movies, or maybe a contrasting point of view,
but sometimes it’s a story, and we are outrageous,
filling in the blank places of each other’s pages,
and I laugh when I find that the you in my mind was much too simple,
much too small, and wore a different shade of blue… CHORUS
+++ clear, you’d prob’ly just walk away, clear,
+++ still I’ve got to say, clear…(it’s clearly you)
+++ sometimes I wonder what’s inside, sometimes I wonder what to hide,
+++ sometimes I think I’d prob’ly scare you…
