​Red Flags

This song is by Sondre Lerche and appears on the album Sondre Lerche (2011).

Red flags are vying for my attention
Nothing adds up
Getting by on old goodwill
Backtracking thoughts from their destination
I closed my eyes thinking I could keep up still
How do you know your limits, honey?
How do you walk the line?

My vision was blurry as dawn faded in
But I saw you on the roof tonight
I would just say this to mess with your head
I saw you on the roof tonight

You have a gift for compelling defense
Even tonight I considered every word
But I can't summon the needed credence
Once off the hook you dissolve and I concur
And so it goes you remain unattainable
I'm high then low so tell me
Just how did you know my weakness honey?
How do you walk the line?

Turns out I'm a witness, what's your alibi?
I saw you on the roof tonight
I wouldn't just say this to mess with your head
I saw you on the roof tonight
My vision was blurry cause dusk used to run the show
Fading in, fading in

All the footwork
All the charades
What's it for?
Fingers crossed
Once I've lost all trust in you
I can't lose you anymore

And so I've decided to stick to my guns
I saw you on the roof tonight
Turns out I'm a witness, what's your alibi?
I saw you on the roof tonight
My vision was blurry but I can't deny
That I saw you on the roof tonight
I swear I don't say this to mess with your head
Fading in, Fading in
How do you know your limits, honey?
How do you walk the line?
