As you crossed the room, I was all wrapped up in my cocoon
When you said hello, I had nowhere to run and I had nowhere to go
With a fool like you, I will say anything you want me to
With a fool like me, I'm amazed at how you take it all so seriously.

People come and people go, and people want to tell you just how much they know
But I'm runnin' out of alibis, I got one thing left that I can't deny
Yes I'm doin' time, doin' time, and it won't be long 'til I cross that line
Yes the day will come when it's time to go, you better get ready, 'cause now you know.

In a place like this, you abandon all hope, you just exist
You can't break the spell, well you know you're not in heaven, but you might be in hell.

People come and people go, and people want to tell you just how much they know
But I'm runnin' out of alibis, I got one thing left that I can't deny
Yes I'm doin' time, doin' time, and it won't be long 'til I cross that line
Yes the day will come when it's time to go, you better get ready, 'cause now you know.

As you crossed the room, I was all wrapped up in my cocoon
When you said hello, I had nowhere to run and I had nowhere to go.

Yes I'm runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
Yes I'm runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
