the earth stopped cold at dawn lyrics – hootie & the blowfish

another reason to doubt me
another teardrop falls
i can’t wait for a friend when loneliness calls
another kiss in the bas*m*nt
pour salt on my tongue
no one cries for heroes left unsung

look at me when i’m talking to you
look at me in the eyes
then look away and tell me why, why

another tasteless movie
another kiss goodnight
could be a dark oasis in my life
another icon smashed to pieces
by yesterday’s romance
another hated person, no more chances

look at me when i’m talking to you
look at me in the eyes
then look away and tell me why, why

playin’ with a happy boy
a cold place for a man
familiar faces in a foreign land, oh oh

the hands kept spinning around the face
but the earth stopped cold at dawn
for a moment, then moved on
for a moment, then moved on
