lyrics

You had your hands in your pockets
I had you in my arms again
We need a new phase, baby
Don't you tear me down now
Don't you tear me down now

What makes you think you can shock me?
You were my teenage drama queen
You've got me where I want you
Don't you tear me down now
Don't you tear me down now

Oh no, not this fight again
This confrontation at the end
This scene is old, this plot is thin
Don't nobody ever win

These empty streets are all you know
In cold weather, your winter gloves will do just fine
Stand firm and quit that shakin'
Take a look around, girl
Damn, we built this town, girl

Put on your winter gloves and just walk on home

Calm down, I'm not your father
Not anything you had in mind
Not burning on the dance floor
Too busy to play now
Too polite to say now

I hear you laugh in photos
From far away, I feel you post up on my wall
I know you're cold and lonely
I did not reject you
We're all adults here, let's act accordingly

Put on your winter gloves and just walk on home

Sprawled out on my bed alone
I'm instant stream -- I'm in the zone
with Seeley Booth and Dr. Bones
Get up on that microphone
Oh no, not this fight again
This confrontation at the end
This scene is old, this plot is thin
Don't nobody ever win

Put on your winter gloves and just walk on home

We bring the rubble in after the fire
We go to therapy
We try to figure out why
We bring the rubble in after the fire
We go to therapy
We make a mess of our lives
