Piano man

I've got nowhere to go, and 
this place is nowhere I should 
be. I can see it in your face, 
forever isn't what you see 
you're looking at me. 
I always try to run, cuz safe 
feels better than when you 
leave and done Is all I become.
But, there's just something in 
me that's held tight in your 
grip. I can't help but stare at 
the shape my name gives your 
perfect lips.
I hear you calling my name, 
and I know tomorrow I will 
never be the same. 
Still, I always run into a just 
love me fight, knowing its just 
to get you through your lonely 
I listen to you playing your  
piano, singing to me with a 
smile "girl take me home, 
sweet baby girl, it's better than 
wondering around all alone"
And it's so sad knowing, 
is all of me you ever want to 
know. And knowing all of this 
and still I dance for you, still 
to you I always go.
And every time you kiss me 
and promise everything is 
alright, you promise tomorrow 
you will call, but I know it'll 
only be a call creeping towards 
the night.
