Lyrics

These are the days we're supposed to find ourselves.
These are the days we can't be faithful to anyone else.
Wish I could say that our love's above all of this,
But in your eyes, I see a future that I am not ready for sealed with a kiss.

I want to love you, but I can't right now.
There're too many things I've yet to figure out,
And you deserve better than someone who stays so unsure.
You deserve better, though you'd never ask for more.
I want to love you, but I can't right now.
So do what's best for you and just get out.

I've no complaints that are aimed your way,
You'd love me right until your dying day.
But I can't commit even to a future of bliss.
My life's only started, so how can I chart it all out? Can you answer me this?

I want to love you, but I can't right now.
There're too many things I've yet to figure out,
And you deserve better than someone who stays so unsure.
You deserve better, though you'd never ask for more.
I want to love you, but I can't right now.
So do what's best for you and just get out.

It's the case of the 20-something mystery,
The dilemma of how to choose right now when we can't see where this might go.
We're too young to know.

These are the days where confusion rules.
This indecision is making it too hard to live in the moment with you.

I want to love you, but I can't right now.
There're too many things I've yet to figure out,
And you deserve better than someone who stays so unsure.
You deserve better, though you'd never ask for more.
I want to love you, but I can't right now.
So do what's best for you and just get out.
Go on and do what's best for you and just get out.
'Cause I want to love you, but I can't right now.
