Lyrics of Run-around

Oh
Once upon a midnight dearie
I woke with something in my head
I couldn't escape the memory of a phone call and of what you said
Like a game show contestant with a parting gift
I could not believe my eyes
When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend who needs to humor me and tell me lies
Yeah humor me and tell me lies
And I'll lie too and say I don't mind
And as we seek so shall we find
And when you're feeling open
I'll still be here
But not without a certain degree of fear
Of what will be with you and me
I still can see things hopefully
But you
Why you wanna give me a run-around?
Is it a sure fire way to speed things up?
When all it does is slow me down
And shake me and my confidence about a great many things
But I've been there
I can see it cower like a nervous magician waiting in the wings
Of a bad play where the heroes are right and nobody thinks or expects too much
And Hollywood's calling for the movie rights
Singing hey babe let's keep in touch
Hey baby let's keep in touch
But I want more than a touch
I want you to reach me
And show me all the things no one else can see
So what you feel becomes mine as well
And soon if we're lucky we'd be unable to tell
What's yours and mine the fishing's fine
And it doesn't have to rhyme so don't you feed me a line
But you, why you wanna give me a run-around?
Is it a sure fire way to speed things up?
When all it does is slow me down
Trah lah lah bomba dear this is the pilot speakin' and I've got some news for you
It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop
And there ain't a whole lot that you can do
Oh sure the banner may be torn and the wind's gotten colder
Perhaps I've grown a little cynical
But I know no matter what the waitress brings
I shall drink in and always be full
Yeah I will drink it and always be full
Oh I like coffee and I like tea but to be able to enter a final plea
I still got this dream that you just can't shake
I love you to the point you can no longer take
Well all right
OK so be that way
I hope and pray that there's something left to say
But you, why you wanna give me a run-around?
Is it a sure fire way to speed things up?
When all it does is slow me down
Oh you
Why you wanna give me a run-around?
Is it a sure fire way to speed things up?
When all it does is slow me down
