There are only two places I could go
One is dark and it feels so hollow
And it lets me in only to swallow
To much water until I drown, baby

And the other place is calm and sweet
I can almost feel wings beneath my feet
And I don't care if it feels to deep
I like it, I like it

And I know you wanna take a chance
And I know you wanna understand me
And let me in

But you runaway from what you know
And you runaway from what you don't
I don't wanna wait for you to change your mind
Don't take the time show me your love tonight

There are only two places that I see
One is strong, and the other one feels so weak
And this plan feels so strange to me
It's all I see, baby

And I know you wanna let it go
And I know you wanna flow this love
But you can't

So you, runaway from what you know
And you, runaway from what you don't
I don't wanna wait for you to change your mind
Don't take the time, show me your love tonight
Oh yeah, tonight

All the angels know what I know
You're an angel that sings to me
It's the greatest secret of all
I am free from thinking

But you runaway from what you know
And you runaway from what you don't
I don't wanna wait for you to change your mind
Don't take the time, let's make love

Don't runaway from what you know
Don't runaway, just let it go
I don't wanna wait for you to tell me what's right
Don't fight it, let's make love tonight
Oh yeah, tonight, oh yeah, oh

Yeah, baby, oh yeah
Let's make love tonight
