3. Mixed Messages

Your body told me a secret last week, and
mine responded with the customary heat.
Friends is okay, but sometimes it's hard
when your boundaries are all over the place
and I'm not on your dance card.

Mixed messages, mixed message hey yeah
I'm picking up mixed messages, mixed
messages hey yeah

This problem is not unique to you - there's
another, and she can't decide what to do.
Hiding behind someone else's rules, she
left me high and dry without a word – I
call that unnecessarily cruel.

I fall into your eyes when you look at me -
ah, shoot me now, put me out of this misery.

I'm picking up mixed messages, mixed
messages hey yeah, I'm picking up mixed
messages, mixed messages hey yeah

Ah but look around, I think I'm being unkind,
maybe I do it too - the blind accuse the blind.
But I fall into your eyes when you look at me -
someone shoot me now, put me out of my
misery.

I'm picking up mixed messages, mixed
messages hey yeah, I'm picking up mixed
messages, mixed messages hey yeah

I'd commit to you if I could draw you in,
but this moment-to-moment thing, oh darling
it's doing me me in...
