Time to Break Away

Boy I can’t explain to you
All the things that you do
My heart, my soul are shaking
My walls are breaking, aching
For someone like you to knock them down
I can’t tell you how much I’ve looked around
Trying to find someone who gets me, fits me
Understands me, I gave up a long time ago
Just decided my answer to all was no
But then you came along

Baby we can’t just be chill
We can’t help the way we feel
It’s all or nothing, and we know it’s true
So let’s do what we gotta do
You know the words we can’t seem to say
I think it’s time to break away

Our hearts are singing the same song
For one another we long
We’ve discovered commitment’s huge
You can’t play with hearts, especially your own
So we both stray away
From those who tend to hold our hearts at bay
We see potential
And fear turns exponential
Escalating then devastating
Us enough to call it off
No more lovey-dovey, no kissing-hugging
Friends is the way to go
Cause deep down we both know

It’s just so hard to do
You’re so cool, you get me, I get you
No drama, no stress,
Just chillin and fun as its’ best, 
The rest of the world can only wish
For a friendship like this, it’s bliss
We hang out, no strings
But our hearts tell us different things
We can’t stay this way
We gotta jet, get outa this thing, we can’t let
Our hearts and emotions get the best of us,
They’re jealous, they see us, can’t believe us
So cool with each other, so chill
Not letting how we feel
Get the best of our hearts, before emotion starts
And then we are forced to admit
