Surefire 03:46
It’s not in my veins To be playing games, But I could write a book— Call it made-you-look Leave it up to me: Can I let it be Like I know I should? You remind me that I'm not in control I'm out of control, man You know I think that I’m better alone, But you’re keeping me open And what I see in you is something they don’t You already know that I don’t mean to impose; It’s only emotion CHORUS: I’d bet my pride That you are where my heart would rest At home in another life, But in the meantime I’ve left behind Something that I can’t forget It's surefire as a turning tide Your fire is still burning bright You don’t like to chase— You think it's a waste, But I really need Men to take the lead Way you made me care Had me really scared; It upset me ‘Cause you remind me that you’re running the show You’re running my show, man Is the timing why I’m sleeping alone And losing my focus? And what I love in you is something they don’t Even notice I just want you to know It’s more than emotion CHORUS Where would I begin If you let me in? Color like a rouge At the thought of you We could hit the road If you wanna go Do you want to?


"Surefire" is a melancholy reflection on what could’ve been. It explores the tense dynamic between two people who could be good for each other if the situation & timing were different.
