"I'm just saying, it's not all sand castles and ninjas."
--Libba Bray


Here we go, one more time
Making my heart beat, in jagged lines
And here I go, losing my mind
Again

I see your face, I'm terrified
I want to go, and run and hide
The smiles I wear, the tears I cried
Again

And my jail cell is your smile, so handsome
And to escape, I have to pay ransom
Leaving is a high price to finally be free

And you've got me caught between a rock and a hard place
Choosing between sanity and your face
And the decision is harder than it has to be

My friend told me, about what you thought
What you told him, how you said I was hot
I believe the exact word, you used was
Damn

And we flirted there, at that basketball game
And since then, I just haven't been the same
But you have, and it's that that I don't
Understand

And my jail cell is your smile, so handsome
And to escape, I have to pay ransom
Leaving is a high price to finally be free

And you've got me caught between a rock and a hard place
Choosing between sanity and your face
And the decision is harder than it has to be

And I know you checked me out
And I know you broke my heart
But you fill me up with doubt
And I won't let you rip me apart

So I'm getting out of here
And getting over you
And getting out of here
And getting over you
And getting out of here
'Cause I don't know what else to do


And my jail cell is your smile, so handsome
And to escape, I have to pay ransom
Leaving is a high price to finally be free

And you've got me caught between a rock and a hard place
Choosing between sanity and your face
And the decision is harder than it has to be
It has to be

These are lyrics, but they don't have a tune. If you read them, like them, and want to write an instrumental part, that's cool. Also, if you want to sing it, do it! I would love it!
