I know how to play this game.
One, two, three and I'm safe.
Count real slow to five,
You couldn't keep my around if you tried.

I know how to beat the rage,
Of my tender age.
Touch me once in the hall,
But don't look back and don't call.

(Chorus)
There are some things I can hardly say,
You've got me feeling a brand new way,
Please don't let this be summer long.

I used to play this game,
In the middle lane,
Pass them all on the inside.
And don't get caught in a lie.

(Chorus)
'cause I want to stay.

All the nights and wasted time,
Trying to get my head to change its mind.
All the talk of what it could be.
When it never was.

There are some things I can hardly say,
You've got me feeling a brand new way,
Please don't let this be summer long.
Please don't let this be summer long.
'cause I want to stay. (x3)

Please don't let this be summer long.
(I want to stay)
Please don't let this be summer long.
(I want to stay)
