lyrics

Stop right now before you hate yourself
Its late and we both know you’ve said enough
Who am I to be unimpressed
And to think that you could ever settle down for your own sake?

I’m learning how to bite my tongue
Without spitting up the needle and the damage done
Because any word that makes it past my teeth
Is sacrificed to the person that you were

I’m just close enough
To watch you as you’re falling through the cracks
If I get close enough
To reach you I will try to pull you back

Look at me, look me in my eyes
Let me stare into the beauty that’s been paralyzed
I see you when you were just a kid
I still remember all the places you would hide

I’m just close enough
To watch you as you’re falling through the cracks
Will you let me get close enough?
I’m just close enough
To watch you as you’re falling through the cracks
If I get close enough
To reach you I will try to pull you back
