Can you stop the world?


Can you stop the world?

I'm sitting so I can see the sunny side of the city
Thinking of what I don't and what I know about you.
But, seriously I've sought to soon see what's it all about.
Seeing you as sincere, there's one question I have left for you.

But then, I freeze as I look in your eyes,
And my brain feels like it's frozen in ice.
And, all I need is a little motivation,
Because you have all of my inspiration.
Oh, what can I do? What can I do to get you?

The skies rolling black, and I feel now's my chance to call her
And say, "Hey babe, ya' know, I thought I just give you a holler."
But then, I just freeze, and my mouth-- sealed with solder.
And, I just can't get through my dismay to risk it and call her

Just to say,
"Oh baby, I feel so rad for you,
And yet, I don`t know what to do.
Oh baby, my head is in a twirl.
Is it true? Can you stop the world?"

Oh, I'm in a cold sweat.
It's because of you, my mind is in a mess.

So, I'm kind of distracted in procrastination,
And there's apparitions of trouble and exaggerations.
So, I stare at the phone and dream of how things could be.
For, to take a chance is too great to execute, indeed.

For, my lady in my dreams calls for me.
I reach for my armor, but the shines smudged, you see.
No light in sight and the winds in a whirl.
I just want to know, can you stop the world?

Oh baby, I feel so radical.
Yes, my heart sings for my body and my soul.
Oh baby, my head is in a twirl.
Is it true? Can you stop the world?
