The kitchen is cold

But the coffee is warm

And the suns coming up

The day has just begun

And your already bored.

Bored of cheering me up

Bored of calming me down

Bored of drying my eyes

But there once was a time when you were the one.

You were the blue of the sky

You came after the storm

You were the switch on the wall

In the dark of the hall

I'm still fumbling for

'cause I'm lost in the black

I don't know where I am.

Arms strecthed out in front

I'm calling your name

Just as loud as I can

I know there's words that we will never speak

And the questions can't be answered easily

But I wanted to be easy so

Nod your head if the plans have changed

Shake it, love, if they stayed the same

Smile at me and I will stay

Start to cry and I'll go away

Just please don't leave me guessing.

So you made me come

Then you sent me away

Like a messenger bird

So I circled the earth

Blown away in the wind

But I always returned

With some new little song

Some sad story to tell

Of a breif love affair

With a girl I compared to you and she failed

You said you don't want me to beg

Then you said get down on your knees

'cause you knew that I would

If I do any good satisfying your needs.

And I know all about those things we cannot speak

And just so you know well they don't bother me

So you don't have to be worried

Just nod your head if the plans have changed

Shake it, love, if they stayed the same

Smile at me and I will stay

Start to cry and I'll go away

Just please don't keep me waiting

Just nod your head if your mind's been changed

Shake it, love, if some hope remains

Just say the word and of course I'll stay

Roll your eyes and i'll go away

Just please don't leave me guessing

Just please don't keep me waiting
