Lyrics: How can you be so certain That you’re the one flirting with fire If each choir needs preaching And everyone’s reaching Into their pockets to see what they’ve got If not a lot has changed But if everything’s changing It’s plain to see you say But no one sees face to face Or eye to eye This is not how it has to end   Who wants to be one step ahead And first to the punchline Just one step ahead First to the punchline   When it feels like it’s all closing in All the lines we won’t cross We bend instead Well never mind all the noise going through your head Because every time we talk we say The same things that we’ve said Never mind all the noise going through your head   How can I be so certain That my first impressions are mine If each morning I wake up With circles around me that say I got mine I give in, I give up It’s too much Come on let’s give them hell No why not love You say it would be too hard And there’s not enough In this house of cards   Who wants to be One step ahead And first to the punchline Just one step ahead First to the punchline   When it feels like it’s all closing in All the lines we won’t cross We bend instead Well never mind all the noise going through your head Because every time we talk we say The same things that were said Every line we cross we say the same things that we said Every time we try we play the same old games it’s all been said Now never mind all the noise going through your head
