Lyrics[edit | edit source]

William Patrick Corgan (2021)

there it goes
playing with my heart again
i don't know when
i'm gonna come up for air
for you now, dear
for you now
for you now

and the way you look at me
makes me happy inside
knowing all the while
i can't hide

come and go
wasting my years
i was born to fear
that there's something in the air
for you now, dear
for you now
for you now

and the way you look at me
makes me happy inside
knowing all the while
i can't hide

come and go
wasting my years
i was born to fear
that there's something in the air
for you now, dear
for you now
for you now

and the way look at me
makes me happy inside
knowing all the while i can't hide

when you've thought to come back
would you take me home?
when you've thought to come back
all alone

Original lyrics

there it goes
playing with my heart again
i don't know when
i'm gonna come up for air
for you now, again
for you now
for you now

and the way you look at me
makes me happy inside
knowing all the while
i can't hide

come and go
wasting my years
i was born to fear
that there's something in the air
for you now, again
for you now
for you now

and the way you look at me
makes me happy inside
knowing all the while
i can't hide

when you've thought to come back
would you take me home?
when you've thought come back
all alone
all alone

there it goes
playing with my heart again
i don't know when
i'm gonna come up for air
for you now, again
for you now
for you now

and the way look at me
makes me happy inside
knowing all the while i can't hide

when you've thought to come back
could you take me home?
when you've thought to come back
all alone
all alone
