Standing alone in the dark in the woods
You said I could have kissed you but I didn't know I could
Standing in the water in the shower next to mine
I can hear you calling to someone walking by

You're so pure that we can't talk together now
So I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have worked out
But it's something I can't help thinking about

Lying on tables you talk and we see stars
Lying in bed your dreams are familiar and bizarre
There was a report from your mother after the time had passed
Then there was another guy cause I'd been afraid to act

You're so pure there's things I don't want to tell you now
I'm sure it's best that things didn't work out
But it's something I can't help thinking about

Everything looks better far away
It gets distorted when it's right in your face
So which is better is hard to say
It's a decision I'm always having to make
