I've been wondering where you are tonight

I've been dreaming that dream and I'm terrified

Did I do something wrong, did I do something right?

Baby, I'm paralyzed


Was that look on your face meant to frighten me?

'Cause you've already scared off my dignity

Now it's getting so late and I've still got the need

Baby, please set me free


And we're dancing the dance of the road

Carrying all the weight we can hold

And we're learning the lines that we'll say when we're old

Dancing the dance of the road


There are times when I think but I do not believe

And I stay just the same when I know I should leave

There are times when I cry but I can't seem to grieve

Maybe I'm just deceived


It's a dangerous game that we've chosen to play

When you can't quite believe all the things that you say

And the comfort you keep at the end of the day

Only gets in the way
