The Long Way AroundThe Long Way AroundWhen the wind blows me your way. I have no control over what I do.All I can do is think of you.I'm looking for the path that I should take.The streets seem so hazy, yet your heart gives me the light.The world around me is full of defects and all I want is to feel safe.Whispers in the air burn me up like flamethrower voices,Butterflies in my stomach tear me up like barbed wire kisses.Let's run around hand in hand. Guide me to your underground lair.The world is full of defects, and all I want is to feel safeWhen the clouds point to me, the hate starts pouring.Be my umbrella, I'm your ray of sunshine. Out will appear an everlasting rainbow.The hate will quickly fade, as the loss of control takes over.Insecurity is inevitable. Be my lock, so I can throw away this key.The world around me is full of defects and all I want is to feel safe.Now I've got you all to myself. No one can take you away.You put the m. e. in me. You put the butterflies in my stomach.
