You showed me my tomorrow 
 Beside a box of matches 
A welcome threatening stir 

My hopes of being stolen 
 Might just ring true 
 Depends who you prefer 

But if it's true you're gonna run away 
Tell me where 
I'll meet you there 

Am I snapping the excitement 
If I pack away the laugther 
And tell you how it feels 

And does burden come to meet ya 
If I've questions of the feature that runs on your dream wheel 

The day after you stole my heart, 
 Everything I touched told me it would be better shared with you 

With you 

And now you're hiding in my sleep 
And the book reveals your face 
And there's a splashing in my eyelids 
As the concentration continually breaks 

I did request the mark you cast 
Didn't heal as fast 
I hear your voice in silences 
Will the teasing of the fire be followed by the thud? 

And the jostling crowd 
You're not allowed to tell the truth 
And the photo booth's a liar 

And the sharpened explanation
But there's no screaming reason to inquire 
I'd like to poke them in their prying eyes 
With things they never see if it smacked them in their temples
