lyrics

You go shrinking my head
Into something that may actually make sense
You laugh at my pretense
Acting tougher than I am
Got me all figured out
Know how I tick, you’ve got me down
Bet you even know how
You’ll get me where you want me baby

Don’t get too close
Or I push you away
Cuz Lord only knows
All the games you can play
Are you having trouble deciphering the sign
I wear on my forehead
To shorten the line
Of cunning deceivers and turpentine
It says stay away, can’t you read, or does that not apply to you
Do I want it to?
Never mind, read the sign

I feel you look in my eyes
But I try not to return the favor
For it would not be wise
To let you see past these walls that I savor
I fear what you would see
If you looked too deep into me
Why you still around
You should be gone right now
While you still can flee

Don’t get too close
Or I push you away
Cuz Lord only knows
All the games you can play
Are you having trouble deciphering the sign
I wear on my forehead
To shorten the line
Of cunning deceivers and turpentine
It says stay away, can’t you read, or does that not apply to you
Do I want it to?
Never mind, read the sign


Does it challenge you to
Try to see through
The front I put up
To weed out the few
That are crazy enough
To go call my bluff
So you called my bluff did you?

Don’t get too close
Or I push you away
Cuz Lord only knows
All the games you can play
Are you having trouble deciphering the sign
I wear on my forehead
To shorten the line
Of cunning deceivers and turpentine
It says stay away, can’t you read, or does that not apply to you?
Do I want it to?
Never mind, read the sign
