lyrics

I'm in this room full of people I don't even want to know
Never felt so claustrophobic, never felt so all alone
I'm looking for a window but there's not a one in sight
If there was I'd open up and escape into the night
See, my girl just said she loves me but i don't believe her yet
I pretend to have the luxury of playing hard to get
I'm afraid I'll push it too far and I'll want to take it back
But she'll be gone before I realize it's way too late for that

(Chorus)
If she'd tear down the walls I'd watch them fall and welcome her in
I can't tear them down with my own two hands when I've spent so long building them
So I'll wait up here until you understand this is as lonely as it gets
Unless you walk away but then I guess we'll both know
The regret, the regret

You, you're not so different; You've been bitten in the past
Some might say you're reckless; some would say you move too fast
You say love is a reaction; only chemical at best
You see all these unhappy people and wonder what more they expect
I know you've got your reasons but I wonder if you've tried
To live as though it were all a dream and not a dirty lie
Til then we'll be standing here and, no, we don't mind the wait
I mean what's the point of skipping out if you don't sleep in late?

(Chorus)
If she'd tear down the walls I'd watch them fall and welcome her in
I can't tear them down with my own two hands when I've spent so long building them
So I'll wait up here until you understand this is as lonely as it gets
Unless you walk away but then I guess we'll both know
The regret, the regret
