lyrics

I am a boy when I should be a man
Like Cyrano when it comes to Roxane
You stand so close to me and I’m in awe
There is a risk you may be striking my core

All hands on deck this ain’t a drill
The damage has yet to be found
The shields are weak and almost down
She’s bound to break apart if you so will

I’m standing here
Not knowing where to turn or go
Captain’s no-win scenario

I was a boy when I should have been more
I stole a kiss and now I’m not so sure
Am I your prisoner or am I free?
Within the smoke of battle it’s hard to see

All hands on deck this ain’t a drill
The damage has yet to be found
The shields are weak and almost down
She’s bound to break apart if you so will

I’m standing here
Not knowing where to turn or go
Captain’s no-win scenario
