Psychological stalker song, think Criminal Minds-style maybe.
I picture a 70s-era basement suite or rec room, old couch and TV set...


Better watch your boundaries, girl
Can't just cross your heart and hope to die
Better watch your step there, boy
Can't just cross the line, you know why

Oh you read too much
Into things and then you're stuck
With the world at large
The world at heart, it's all too much

And the nights are long
Sitting at home
And your needs are strong
And you're alone

Nevermind what you thought she said
Forget the voices in your head
What you thought was right was left
When you do you worst, it's your best
It ain't no crime

You've got the right to rise
But you pick up right where you left off
And it's round two tonight
Will you fall and will she fight

And the nights are long...
