Lyrics

Verse 1
It’s a human sign
When things go wrong
When the scent of her lingers
And temptation’s strong

Pre-Chorus
Cold, cold heart
Hardened by you
Some things look better, baby
Just passing through (Oh no, no, no, no)

Chorus
And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
’Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no, no, no (No, no, no, no)
And this is what I should have said
When I thought it, but I kept it in

Pre-Chorus
Cold, cold heart
Hardened by you
Some things look better, baby
Just passing through (Oh no, no, no, no)

Chorus
And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
’Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no, no, no (No, no, no, no)
And this is what I should have said
When I thought it, but I kept it in

Pre-Chorus
Cold, cold heart (Oh)
Hardened by you
Some things look better, baby (Oh)
Just passing through (Oh no, no, no, no)

Chorus
And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
’Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no, no, no (No, no, no, no)
And this is what I should have said (And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time)
(’Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find)
When I thought it, but I kept it in (I’m not the man they think I am at home)
(Oh, no, no, no)
(Oh no, no, no, no)

Outro
