lyrics

C'mon honey, crack a smile.
You’ve been sitting over there for a while.
The straight line of your mouth makes a girl’s heart break.
I know, I know, I joke a lot.
But I’m fightin' with all I got.
It’s a laugh and love out of you I wanna shake.

You’re a tough crowd tonight.
I can’t get a rise out of you.
I’d even take tears tonight,
I’m dyin’ up here for you.
You’re a tough crowd honey...
I don’t know what I’m gonna do.

I can see it in your sigh.
You hear right through my sorta lie.
I hate not keeping anything from you.
I call you after a silent spring...
You haven't missed a single thing.
Lord, that's love...and it's infuriating, too.

You’re a tough crowd tonight.
I can't get away from you.
I need you so bad tonight,
and maybe you need me too.
You’re a tough crowd honey...
I don’t know what I’m gonna do.

The tension’s high...I’m almost cryin’...
I don’t know if I can go on tonight.
Say something...throw something...I just know we gotta do something.

I’m standing in this darkened room,
blowing through the smoke at you.
The straight line from your eyes makes a girl's heart shake.
Just as long as you understand;
that's as far as I have planned.
This won’t be a love that I forsake.

You’re a tough crowd tonight.
I can’t get a rise out of you.
I’d even take tears tonight,
I’m dyin’ up here for you.
You’re a tough crowd honey...
I don’t know what I’m gonna do.
