lyrics

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
