Life is too short to wonder
Who's gonna make the next move
And will it slowly pull you under
When you've always got something to prove

I don't want to wait a lifetime
Yours or mine
Yours or mine
Can't you see me reaching for the lifeline
Your lifeline (x4)

You say that I misheard you
But I think you misspoke
I hear you laugh so loudly
while I patiently wait for joke

I don't want to wait a lifetime
Not yours
Not mine
Can't you see me reaching for the lifeline
Your lifeline (x4)

It's a crime with only victims
We're all laid out in a row
And it's hardest to listen
to what we already should know
I could hold out for a lifetime
Yours or mine
Yours and mine
Can't you see me reaching for your lifeline
Your lifeline (x4)

Pure pain...A criminal would confess rather than be subjected to this torture.
The criminals aren't so innocent after listening to this dreck.
Boring, painful, pretentious, cloying, all of those things. That tremulous oh-so-sensitive voice and off-key guitar are so grating. Phew.
this is just gross.
It's OK, but the dun da da dun da da dun da da. C'mon Ben! I know he laid this song down in one take and unfortuantely it comes across like thatl; lacking a lot in a melody. Lyrics are pretty good and possibly with better a better melody could be brought out of the depths of a cloying song of annoyance.

I'm not digging the guitar either. The simplistic waltz strums sound like me trying to play the guitar...and I stink out loud.

I love the vocal quality...excellent
Ben and the guys play to a sold out house tonight at the Warner in DC. Got one ticket - looking for another. Anyone?
