I Think We're Alone Now (Tiffany cover)
. . .


Waiting as I'm wanting to
Speaking as I'm spoken to
Changing to your point of view
Fading as I follow you

A boyish notion of false emotion
These words are spoken despite my love
A fool's devotion was set in motion
My eyes are open now

It's a glass cage so I can't pretend
You hide beneath the physical
I see it coming
But I can't defend
You cut so deep
My belief is gone
My belief is gone
My belief is...

Tell me what I want to say
Save me for another day
Break me, it's the game you play
Hate me as I turn away

A boyish notion of false emotion
These words are spoken despite my love
A fool's devotion was set in motion
My eyes are open now

It's a glass cage so I can't pretend
You hide beneath the physical
I see it coming
But I can't defend
You cut so deep
My belief is gone
My belief is gone
My belief is gone
My belief is gone
My belief is...

It's a glass cage so I can't pretend
You hide beneath the physical
I see it coming
But I can't defend
You cut so deep
My belief is gone
My belief is gone
My belief is gone
My belief is gone
My belief is...

Farewell
This blackened eye
You've learned your lessons falling down
Far behind and tracing footsteps home

Despite your lack of pride
You wore your imperfections well
Dignified
Spend your time alone
Trace your footsteps home

Your hands are always reaching out of favor
Your kind are only good for bad behavior
Your mouth was never one to trust
You're always speaking out
Falling far behind
Falling out of line

Farewell
This bitter tongue
You spoke your lessons falling down, talking out
And breaking silence

Despite the harm you've done
You swallowed your rejection well
Amplified
Sing your song alone
Trace your footsteps home

Your hands are always reaching out of favor
Your kind are only good for bad behavior
Your mouth was never one to trust
You're always speaking out
Falling far behind
Falling...

Your hands are always reaching out of favor
Your kind are only good for bad behavior
Your mouth was never one to trust
You're always speaking out
Falling far behind
Falling out of line

A Painting for every face
No correction, just cover up
She can't afford to come off
hard cause she's too cold to shiver
Too cold to shiver
Too cold to shiver in this cold
She's too cold to shiver

All the hands along the wall
Taking time to break her fall
Minds divide the heart in two
Empty as the shadows walking over you
Over you
She's walking over you
Breaking the fall over you

(Always Wanting)
(Watching) Minds divide the heart in two (For you)


(Always Watching)
(Waiting) Shadow walking over you (For you)

Pictures for every place
No affection, just shut her up
She can't afford to make it
hard cause she's too cold to shiver
Too cold to shiver
Too cold to shiver in this cold
She's too cold to shiver

All the eyes behind the wall
Taking time to watch her crawl
Broken hearts are never true
Empty as the shadows walking over you
Over you
She's walking over you
Watching her crawl over you

(Always Wanting)
Broken hearts are never true (Waiting)
(For you)

(Always Wanting)
Shadows walking over you (Waiting)
(For you)

(Always Wanting)
Broken hearts are never true (Watching)
(For you)

(Always Wanting)
Shadows walking over you (Waiting)
(For you)

It's my red star
It's my red star (can't let go)

Best of cruel intentions
Binding what they fail to mention
No truth
All pretension
Raise your hand to give attention

You'd give it
We'd take it
You'd build it
We'd break it
You sign and we erase it
You'd feel it
We'd fake it

It's my red star (steal it)
It's my red star (can't let go)
It's my red star (conceal it)
It's my red star
Oh no...

Wasted education
Celebrating imitation
Misplaced admiration
Speaking for a generation

You'd give it
We'd take it
You'd build it
We'd break it
You sign and we erase it
You'd feel it
We fake it

It's my red star (steal it)
It's my red star (can't let go)
It's my red star (conceal it)
It's my red star
Oh no...

Lights out
Boys sleepwalking on the weekend.
Black out
Two nights killing off a best friend

Fall out like soldiers walking off the deep end
Hands out
Don't stop marching til the hearts rend
Lights out
Girls keep walking, ooohhh

Lights out
Boys sleepwalking on the weekends
Lights out
Girls keep walking on the east end
Lights out
Boys sleepwalking on the weekends
Lights out
Girls keep walking, ooohh

Lights out
Boys sleepwalking on the weekends
White out
Two lights shining on a dead end

Drawn out
Like circles trailing off the pavement
Stand out
Don't stop marching till the hearts mend
Lights out
Girls keep walking, ooohh

Lights out
Boys sleepwalking on the weekends
Lights out
Girls keep walking(ooohh) on the east end
Lights out
Boys sleepwalking on the weekends
Lights out
Girls keep walking, ooohh

I promise you one day
I promise you always
We'll make it out one day
I promise you always

The time goes by
And sets the stage
They play their parts
And act their age
They never forget the lines that they say
Speaking slowing

As time goes
I set the stage
We play their parts
And act our age
We'll never forget the words that they'd say
Talking slowly

I promise you one day
I promise you always
We'll make it out one day
I promise you always
Keep Walking, ooh

I promise you one day
I promise you always
We'll make it out one day
I promise you always

I promise you one day
I promise you always
We'll make it out one day
I promise you always

I promise you always
We'll make it out one day
I promise you always

Children behave
That's what they say when we're together
And watch how you play
They don't understand
And so we're...

Running just as fast as we can
Holdin' on to one another's hand
Tryin' to get away into the night
And then you put your arms around me
And we tumble to the ground
And then you say

I think we're alone now
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I think we're alone now
The beating of our hearts is the only sound

Look at the way
We gotta hide what we're doin'
Cuz what would they say
If they ever knew
And so we're

Running just as fast as we can
Holdin' on to one another's hand
Tryin' to get away into the night
And then you put your arms around me
And we tumble to the ground
And then you say

I think we're alone now
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I think we're alone now
The beating of our hearts is the only sound
