Verse 1
Sometimes I just can't find any words that help me explain
The feeling I get when you set me up just to knock me down again
First you want things to be differentthen you want things the same
There's a party going on in your mind but I'm too old for games
And if you ask me what I'm made of I'll tell you to your face
Don't ask me if I'm a man or a mouse when the rats are winning the race
Verse 2
'Cause I'm burning a short fuse and it won't last
And if you're gonna snooze you're gonna lose,it's burning up fast
And when the heat is on and the bombs all explode
I'll be long goneheaded down the road
Verse 3
Looks like you still can't see anything from my point of view
We've been through it all and we talk things outbut what you say is not what you do
You drag me on to a see-saw, we're up and then we're down
And with our love we go to hell and back; and then we go to town
And if you ask me for the problem, I'll tell you to your face
You're driving me right out of my mind and that's an awful thing to waste
Verse 4
'Cause I'm burning a short fuse and it won't last
And if you're gonna snooze you're gonna lose,it's burning up fast
And when the heat is on and the bombs all explode
I'll be long gone headed down the road
Verse 5
At times we get so closethen you get that look in your eyes
A light goes on, a better ideabut you better not even try
Everything's gonna go crazy; it's all wrong then it's all right
And if you're winding up for the big one, well you better not wind too tight
And if you ask me if I'm all right I'll tell you to your face
I'm like an astronaut that's on the launch pad and I'm headed into space
Verse 6
AndI'm burning a short fuse and it won't last
And if you're gonna snooze you're gonna lose,it's burning up fast
And when the heat is on and the bombs all explode
I'll be long gone headed down the road
Verse 7
I'll be long gone
I'll be long gone
On down that road
