The first time I ever wrote a song on a bet.

lyrics

Where have you been little Tina
Why so much pain behind your smile?
Where are you going littleTina?
And could you stay for a little while?

Slow down I can hear the sound of your heart breaking
When I smile for you do you know what it is you’re taking?
I see you stripped of all the masks that you’ve been making this time
Ooh, this time
Ooh, this time

I’ve gotta know little Tina
Do you really understand?
Who do you run from, little Tina?
You hold your future by the hand

Slow down I can hear the sound of your heart breaking
When I smile for you do you know what it is your taking?
I see you stripped of all the masks that you’ve been making this time
Ooh, this time
Ooh, this time

Well you’re looking at me with your eyes so sweet
And you never know where we’re going to meet
And you’re taking it off but you’re taking your time and you know
When everything fits but you don’t know where
And you’re going on down but you’re taking me there
And you’ve got the rhythm but not the rhyme and you know

What have you done now, little Tina?
Why did you have to catch my eye?
Will you ever hear me, little Tina?
Or will this be the last goodbye?

Slow down I can hear the sound of your heart breaking
When I smile for you do you know what it is your taking?
I see you stripped of all the masks that you’ve been making this time
Ooh, this time
Ooh, this

Slow down I can see the tracks that you’ve been making
When I smile for you do you know what it is your taking?
When will you leave behind the masks that I’ve been breaking this time?
