Album: Not So Soft
Song: Anticipate


Anticipate


You are subtle as a window pane
Standing in my view
But I will wait for it to rain
So that I can see you
You call me up at night
When there's no light passing through
And you think that I don't understand
But I do

We don't say everything that we could
So that we can say later
Oh, you misunderstood
I hold my cards up close to my chest
I say what I ahve to and I hold back the rest

Someone you don't know
Is someone you don't know
Get a firm grip, girl
Before you let go
For every hand extended
Another lies in wait
Keep you reye on that one
Anticipate

Dress down and get out there
Pick a fight with the police
We'll get it all on film for the new release
Seems like everyone's an actor
Or they're an actor's best friend
I wonder what was wrong to begin with
That they should all have to pretend
We lose sight of everything
When we have to keep checking our backs
I think we should all just smile,
Come clean and relax

Someone you don't know
Is someone you don't know
Get a firm grip, girl
Before you let go
For every hand extended
Another lies in wait
Keep you reye on that one
Anticipate

If there's anything I've learned
All these years on my own
It's how to find my own way there
And how to find my own way back home
