Lyrics

I don’t talk a lot 

‘bout what have, or haven’t got 
But I’m seeing and thinking and dreaming 
Every day 

The price of compromise 
Shows right here in our eyes 
As we watch, what we want, what we need 
Get worn away 
Oh I wish I 
Had the nerve to say

alan's a blur in times square

That I’m burning for ya’ 
Yearning for ya’ 
And love, is a hard thing to hide 
I’m burning for ya’ 
Yearning for ya’ 
And love, is a hard thing to hide 
But I’m learning. I am learning. 

When that freight train 
whistle blows 
I just, turn my head and go 
I step up, and breathe in 
as she rolls 
On out of sight 

And when you look at me and smile 
I feel we’re both such liars 
Swaying, then saying, ahh the timing 
just ain’t right 
Oh I wish I could 
Hold you every night 

I’m burning for ya’ 
Yearning for ya’ 
And love, is a hard thing to hide 
I’m burning for ya’ 
Yearning for ya’ 
And love, is a hard thing to hide 
But I’m learning. 
I am learning from you baby. 
I am learning.
