lyrics

Rebecca, I know
there’s nowhere to go
it all fell apart but it happened so slowly
I didn’t notice
that we were losing control

Rebecca, don’t cry
I told you no lies
I kissed you back but I still don’t know why
I don’t think I love you
but I sure can get lost in your eyes

we don’t belong to each other right now
don’t let me be the one keeping you down
who do you go to when I’m not around?
is it someone I know?

Rebecca, I see
we’ll never agree
and it’s hard to be callous to someone so sweet
I don’t want to hurt you
and I don’t want you to hurt me

Rebecca, it’s late
and I can’t let you stay
besides you still insist you don’t want me that way
we said we’d be careful
but lines in the sand blow away

please don’t pretend that you don’t understand
I can’t spend my life in the palm of your hand
and when I’m in your arms I forget who I am
so I think we should stop

Rebecca, I know
there’s nowhere to go
it all fell apart but it happened so slowly
I didn’t notice
that we were losing control
