I've heard what you've been saying
And I can't believe it's true
I'm careful in what I wish for
But this came out of the blue

Residence or consequence
Nothing really makes much sense
Well it's the price I'll pay, I guess
But I'm sorry for the mess

They're back and I can't get away
Can I think of one good thing to say?
Hey there what's the deal? Tell me how you feel

In my stomach, they all remain
It's a feeling that I can't explain
I wonder if it's real, it still seems so concealed

I don't know what I'm doing
But I'm sure it lies with me
I'm careful for what I promise
Because such promises aren't free
