Lyrics

I hike the stairs, even though I am tied to this chair
And all the while I am reminded of your smile you give today
Was it for me or him, yes I’ll go out on a limb
And introduce myself once and for all

The critics stare as you untie your chair and extend your hand
They were enchanted but I cannot take for granted what is mine, no
You could say no or yes, but I’d venture a guess
That you do so very little of what you’re told

And I don’t understand why you could not reprimand your caustic lies
You lost the right when you disappeared that night, some Valentine
Was it for me or him, yes I’ll go out on a limb
And convince yourself it didn’t, it didn’t mean a thing

I hike the stairs, even though I am tied to this chair
And all the while I am reminded of your smile you give today
Was it for me or him, yes I’ll go out on a limb
And introduce myself once and for all
