Lyrics: Orbiting

Orbiting

 

Once, I heard someone say

That every hello is a goodbye waiting

And I took those words to heart

To shield it from breaking

 

Once, I heard someone say

That in love you must be brave

But this I could no longer dare

The peril was too grave

 

And I didn't want to stay

And I didn't want to go

Looking for what love is all about

And I didn't want to stay

And I didn't want to go

Looking for the fastest way out

I kept my distance, orbiting

 

Like Venus, I strayed too close to the Sun

And I was burnt, and I learned how to run

And as I ran (and as I ran)

I ran too far (I ran too far)

I began to freeze

I could find no ease

 

And so, I was in a strange place

Watching others taking part in love's great race

Watching them collide and drift off-course

Asking why, when I was safe, I still felt remorse

And I didn't want to stay (and I didn't want to stay)

And I didn't want to go (and I didn't want to go)

I kept my distance, orbiting

 

And I didn't want to stay

And I didn't want to go

Looking for what love is all about

And I didn't want to stay

And I didn't want to go

Looking for the fastest way out

I kept my distance, orbiting

 

Saxophone solo

 

And I didn't want to stay

And I didn't want to go

Looking for what love is all about

And I didn't want to stay

And I didn't want to go

Looking for the fastest way out

I kept my distance, orbiting
