On Again, Off Again

Nick Cardilino

 

I knew I loved her from day one

Her smile lit up the office, made it so much fun

I could tell she kinda liked me too

But everybody knows a work romance isn’t safe

It took three months to ask her for a date

Then I called it off, worried what the boss would do

And it’s been…

 

On again, off again

In and out of love again

On again, off again

In and out of love

One day high, the next day low

These ups and downs have got to go

I want to be on again for good

 

So I prayed for an act of God

And soon enough, she landed this glamour job

Now we can go out anytime we like

But since then, it isn’t me changing my mind

By Tuesday, she’ll say I’m not her kind

Then on Friday, she’ll ask if I have plans that night

You see, we’re…

 

Chorus

 

Why do I keep hanging on?  I don’t need this stress.

Maybe I should break it off.  My heart says “no;” my head says “yes”

But still it’s…

 

Chorus

 

I know that it don’t make sense

But I want to be on again for good
