lyrics

you do not take leaps of faith
and clearly i do not have what it takes
to remain unphased
not to run aground 
when you're making waves

when all or nothing goes
and you're running
so hot and so cold

i waited for you cause at the time
you said you wanted me to
you're not coming are you?

cause you do not take leaps of faith
and clearly i do not have what it takes
to remain unphased
not to run aground
when the look in your eyes
has a lot to hide
and its giving you away

for the difference it makes
i only waited for you cause at the time
you said you wanted me to
you're not coming are you
i waited for you cause at the time
you said you wanted me to
is that rocket science for you?

that sentiments
heavy as bricks and mortar
can carry 
like sound over water
and words
that hold their weight
so effortlessly
begin to strain
and quake at the knees
and at curtain call
they falter and stall
and i say nothing at all 

you're running 
so hot and so cold

i waited for you cause at the time
you said you wanted me to
you're not coming are you?

i like to be alone 
but its nice to know
i'm not the only one
and thats rocket science for you
that's rocket science for you
