i’d trade all this for happiness if it was guaranteed
i’d stay up all night just to talk to you
put my hand down on your knee

but we can’t stay like this forever
no something’s gotta change
’cause friends are friends, lovers are lovers
and i can’t think of us as friends

for several years now i’ve been thinking of us as family
or at least assuming someday that eventually we might be
but it turns out you’ve been thinking something different completely
and you expect me to just sit back passively watching you leave me

this ain’t no hostage situation
no it’s just something i’ve gotta do
’cause you might think you’re gonna leave me
but baby i’m not leaving you

you can’t blame a guy for trying
don’t look scared, i’m not that dangerous
you know me and this isn’t all my fault
don’t act scared, i’m not that dangerous

i’m not that dangerous
