I saw you wave goodbye and play it off as so romantic
I thought it cute, and couldn't help it as my
Strength inside, failed to ward off your advances
And now I'm,
I'm caught up in politics and lies
As entertainers we try and sing this same song every night
I'm tired of trying to treat you like
You ever mattered enough for me to put this kind of time
Or any time at all, I swear
Slow down...
Just enough to
Fake this...
Cause there's way too much riding
On an educated guess
I couldn't live without
Just calm down...
Enough to get me through this
And lay back...
So I can really get a chance tonight
To play out the process while lost in the moment
Where I know this is right
With my arms around you
I'm trying to tune out everything that anyone has said
But who can forget the past
That's so ripe with lies and deceit that
I'm stuck debating to ask you
"With all you've done,
Do you remember how it feels to be in love?"
Even though the stakes were high
The prize I won, well, just wasn't that fantastic
It's left me bruised and wondering how and why I'm
Living the politicians life
Where it's more important to save my image than to save my soul
I guess that's how I survived
And oh, there's a certain part of me that knows they're right
And I hope you know, that I know
But until I care too much I'll just
Slow down...
Just enough to
Fake this...
Cause there's way too much riding
On an educated guess
I couldn't live without
Just calm down...
Enough to get me through this
And lay back...
So I can really get a chance tonight
To play out the process while lost in the moment
Where I know this is right
I tried my best to make an offer
You tried your best to meet my demands
But you won't come close and I won't calm down
Your track record has made this personal
Still everything I said I loved
You don't hear me though...
Slow down...
Just enough to
Fake this...
Cause there's way too much riding
On an educated guess
I couldn't live without
Just calm down...
Enough to get me through this
And lay back...
So I can really get a chance tonight
To play out the process while lost in the moment
Where I know this is right
With my arms around you
I'm trying my best to get these words
And feeling off my chest
And still I'm saving the best for last
We lied down to do what we do best
And throw caution into the wind
Cause what's done is done
"Can you remember how it feels?"
If one night can make me feel like this
I swear I'd take it back if I could take it back
There's so much that I wish I could have asked
Before you let me down and before I let you...
There's only one thing I know I have to ask you,
And that's "do you go through what I am going through?"
