you’re sending me mixed messages
mixed messages that i can barely work through
where the heart lies, which messages
comin’ truly from you.

when i get too close to you
i feel the fear, i can almost hear it
then you call me late at night
sayin’, “can i be with you?
i wanna be with you”.

you’re sending me mixed messages
mixed messages that i can barely work through
where the heart lies, which messages
comin’ truly from you.

you keep your thoughts to yourself
to keep me guessin’ as we’re undressin’
then you’re gone for days on end
and here we go again
here we go again.

you’re sending me mixed messages
mixed messages that i can barely work through
where the heart lies, which messages
comin’ truly from you.

i can’t keep bouncing around like this
cut me loose then pull me in for a kiss
if you know what you want i wish you’d tell me
clearly.

wonder why it bothers me
i wonder why, i even wonder why
if i had another lover
would it get to you
would i get through?

this puzzle of mixed messages
mixed messages that i can barely work through
where the heart lies, which messages
comin’ truly from…

you’re sending me mixed messages
mixed messages that i can barely work through
where the heart lies, which messages
comin’ truly from you.
