Try not to fight it off
Try not to fall too hard this time
Don't want to fall for love
Or the easy rhyme
But you can't help to give into it all
But I know it never seems safe enough to throw
All your trust in

God only shines on the well adjusted
But you're not fooling anyone
You're hurt and your shy
You're not all sex and hips
That's the myth
That's the lie

You don't care for the war
You'd rather just dance

Don't follow anyone
Be on your own
Now that you've learned to run
Where you gonna go?
You need space to wander
You need time to roll

Don't need some sort of master plan
Rather leave something to chance
You're gonna ring from this world
Some sort of last drop of romance

I breathe the live ecstatic
Live love in the light
I'm gonna take
I'm gonna have it
I'm gonna take

You don't care for the war
You'd rather just dance
