Structure + Lyrics

Verse

still sitting there, with your legs crossed
not paying attention to me
and if we talk, i'm just curious
will this end up like it always does?

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

it's all the wrong i've done, all the wrong i'll do, that keeps me from trying
that keeps me quiet...

Verse

throw out your arms, to each side
it's easier to let things go
and when we talk, i think what we say
it's questions then silence and silent we remain

Pre-Chorus

Chorus / Feedback Guitar Solo

it's all the wrong i've done, all the wrong i'll do, that keeps me from trying
keeps me from calling you
something i just found out
something you know by now
hope makes you so strong
strength keeps you alone, far away
