She’s taken an interest in you She’s following everything you do But she won’t admit it If you take an interest in her Things won’t be how they were But you won’t regret it You’ve kept to yourself But now there’s someone else Do you think you’re ready? Maybe she’s the one Or is it just for fun Make your move already She’s taken an interest in you She’s following everything you do But she won’t admit it If you take an interest in her Things won’t be how they were But you won’t regret it You act so out of touch Because you think too much You’re always so careful Are you scared she’ll break your heart? Scared of things falling apart Don’t be so fearful Get yourself together She won’t wait forever She’s taken an interest in you She’s following everything you do But she won’t admit it If you take an interest in her Things won’t be how they were But you won’t regret it

When fear gets your way Tell yourself that everything will be okay Don’t let it toss you around Try to keep your feet on the ground You’ve got to keep your sanity And control your anxiety When nothing is going your way And you start to feel afraid Don’t give in to fear Fear will drag you down Your thoughts can keep you up all night Convincing you that nothing is going to be all right When you don’t know what the future holds Everything feels out of control When nothing is going your way And you start to feel afraid Don’t give in to fear Fear will drag you down You’ve got to step up to the plate You are in control of your own fate You control your own destiny Fear is your greatest enemy Don’t give in to fear Fear will drag you down You control your own destiny Fear is your greatest enemy When nothing is going your way And you start to feel afraid Don’t give in to fear Fear will drag you down

The tears of a clown at a military parade The clouds moving for the sun Live and let live on Christmas Day Stop fighting and have some fun I’m surprised That your tenderness Shines Through your bitterness I’m surprised To see you smile You’re so alive I hope this stays for a while So many paths that you can take You can open up and just let go You can tear down the wall and show your face Surprise us and say that you’re okay, okay? I’m surprised That your tenderness Shines Through your bitterness I’m surprised To see you smile You’re so alive I hope this stays for a while I’m surprised To look into your eyes And see the person you’re meant to be I’m surprised That your tenderness Shines Through your bitterness I’m surprised To see you smile You’re so alive I hope this stays for a while

Whenever I hear this melody I start to feel nostalgic I hear it in high fidelity And I start to feel nostalgic We used to have fun together We would stay out all night long I thought it would last forever Sadly I was wrong Every time this song starts to play It takes me back to better days Whenever I hear this melody I start to feel nostalgic I hear it in high fidelity And I start to feel nostalgic We used to sing together We would always mess up the words But we just loved the rhythm And when it went to the minor third Now it’s all just a memory And the feeling lives inside me Whenever I hear this melody I start to feel nostalgic I hear it in high fidelity And I start to feel nostalgic Carry me back to Those memories Back when we were so care free Memories Ohhh Memories Ohhh
