Lyrics

You want to be lovers, not just friends
Give me time to consider this turn of events
because it feels just like you’ve handed me a hornet’s nest, oh yes.

“From where you’re sitting”, you say, “it’s so easy to see.
A shift to center position from the periphery.”
I know you think you mean it, but will it stand the test? of time?

-don’t you know that you’re
Playing with fire
Messin’ with the way our world’s always turned
You’re playing with fire
And somebody’s gonna, somebody’s gonna get burned, oh yeah.

I’m gonna put on my Saturday best
Take a bus downtown, well, I think you know the rest
Find a bar that’s hoppin’, have a drink, maybe a few, oo oo.
Because I’m still in shock from what you just said
It keeps rollin’ all around and around in my head
These hornets are stinging, what am I supposed to do? ‘bout you?

-don’t you know that you’re
And somebody’s gonna, somebody’s gonna get
Somebody’s gonna, somebody’s gonna get
Somebody’s gonna, somebody’s gonna get burned, oh yeah!
