Lyrics

When I saw you for the very first time how could I have known
That the life that I'd been living was the thing that I'd outgrown
All my dreams go up in smoke now, as I contemplate the truth
That behaving like a youngster is no substitute for youth

​My heart, pounding, crimson rush defies my will
Through my senses, and emotions start to spill
And the world spins on its axis, that's the danger, that's the thrill
The world spins on its axis, that's the danger

​I'm on a roller coaster hoping I'll survive the ride
As the trappings fall away to show the animal inside
And without a second glance I leave the one I loved behind
Abandoning the loyalty it took so long to find

​My heart, pounding, crimson rush defies my will
Through my senses, and emotions start to spill
And the world spins on its axis, that's the danger, that's the thrill
The world spins on its axis and emotions start to spill

​The world spins on its axis, that's the danger, that's the thrill
And through it all I'm standing still
Through it all I'm standing still

​Then it's over like it started, we move on to something new
And the cold chill of indiference is all I feel from you
You would have thought that I'd remember, as I contemplate the truth​
That behaving like a youngster is no substitute for youth

My heart's pounding, crimson rush defies my will
Through my senses, and emotions start to spill
My heart is pounding, crimson rush defies my will
Through my senses, and emotions start to spill

​And the world spins on its axis, that's the danger, that's the thrill
The world spins on its axis and emotions start to spill
The world spins on its axis, that's the danger, that's the thrill
And through it all I'm standing still

Through it all I'm standing still
Through it all I'm standing still
