lyrics

things change
no, they were never meant to stay the same
time erodes the past and hides the pain
don't be afraid
oh, even victors tend to lose their praise
it's not just cowards who run away

in parking lots and on the screen
I watch you dance, I watch you sing
through telephones and magazines
you brought me hope, that's all I need

'cause you know what you want
you're never going to get it by acting tough
you're never going to get it until you give it up
you've got this heart started, it's hard to stop it
I love you so much
I've loved you since the day you caught my eye
when my boyfriend committed social suicide
and it got me talking, it got me talking to you

things change
but there's always ways to stay the same
a different name but a familiar face
try to explain
how one can move through all the waiting games
a thousand steps but then a million ways

in parking lots and on the screen
I watch you dance, I watch you sing
through telephones and magazines
you brought me hope, that's all I need

'cause you know what you want
you're never going to get it by acting tough
you're never going to get it until you give it up
you've got this heart started, it's hard to stop it
I love you so much
I've loved you since the day you caught my eye
when my boyfriend committed social suicide
and it got me talking, it got me talking to you that night

in parking lots with the points of view
(I'm just trying to keep it together)
we spent a lot of julys and junes
and now I sit with a silent stare
and it's got me talking, it's got me talking (to you that night)
a blank stare and an inside joke
(I'm just trying to keep it together)
you're the stranger I have always known
I feel you there even when you go
and it's got me talking

'cause you know what you want
you're never going to get it by acting tough
you're never going to get it until you give it up
you've got this heart started, it's hard to stop it
I love you so much
I've loved you since the day you caught my eye
when my boyfriend committed social suicide
and it got me talking, it got me talking to you

things change
