You said, I’m a shore, I can build our castles out of sand
The day, I got washed away and it’s a long walk home again

I should have known, the look on your face
You climbed in the car, where you wanted to go
Rumors, I’d heard, no longer ignored
You opened your mouth but before you could speak

I said no, I really, don’t think, I want to know
I really, don’t think, I want to go that far, now
Let’s just stay right where we are now
Live, well enough, alone

I squint at the road but I can still see
Windshield reflections, you’re staring at me
You’ve something to say, that I don’t want to hear
And it gets hard to drive, when I’m covering my ears

So, I say no, I really, don’t think, I want to know
I really, don’t think, I want to go that far down
I’d rather stay uninvolved now

These fevered confessions, frighten me and though you’re my friend
I swear, if you don’t stop soon, it’s a long walk home again

You just won’t quit, what made you believe
I wanted to hear the secrets you keep?
Now, I see what it takes, your head hits the windshield
When I hit the brakes

‘Cause I said no, I really, don’t think, I want to know
I really, don’t think, I want to go that far now
Let’s just stay right where we are now

I said no, I really, don’t think, I want to know
I really, don’t think, I want to go that far down
You’ve gotten me involved now
Now, look what you’ve done
