Come on, it’s only a matter of time It’s only gonna matter if I’m the one you’re hiding from (If you take off and run) But not while you’re still in your prime! You’re wanted for more than your crimes! You don’t even try But you make me laugh, and it turns me on Like my hand on your back when it’s been too long But you told me the things that I loved were a lie You end every breath with a stamp and a sigh I want you to give me a shot And I won’t talk a lot The last time that you were on my side I got lost, but oh my god I tried and I tried I tried not to watch As affection drained out of your eyes So step out of your past, now, and into the night You’re running out of timely thoughts to try on And you’re not even close! You can’t get lost if you don’t know where you’re trying to go But you told me the things that I loved were a lie You start every sentence with “I’ll tell you why...” I’ll be your whatever you want So what do you want? The last time you had me on the line I fell off, but now, of course, I’m fine And you’re fine You’re finding out fast, you were never so one-of-a-kind You’re just one step further back now And you don’t even know How you fell so far to where you are Now you’re blinded by the stars you once flew circles around

Call off your bets, I didn’t mean anything It was late I was a hopeless boy, alive for the first time Didn’t know if I could make it alone I was trying too hard Was I trying too hard? Am I... I’m trying too hard But I watched your face when I kissed you Your eyes closed Your breath... slows And your lips curl up And that’s what I want to see I could have cared less You could have been anyone I set you up With common cause that I overstated Honest thoughts that I couldn’t take: “If I left alone If I let you down Would you take me home Would you hold me down?” But I watched your face when I kissed you Your eyes closed Your breath... slows And your lips curl up And that’s what I want to see That’s what I want you to be
