You’re on your own, clinging to a script that you’ve gone off again.
Paging through to see where you went wrong again.
You never let it die.
I come along.
Never part my lips to say an idle word.
But you can’t rest unless you’re my entire world.
And you never let it die.
You want me to say how much I need you,
but I don’t really see the need to.
You want me to hold you like he held you,
but isn’t he the one that fell through?
I just want to be the one you run to.
So shut up and let me love you.
You beg for dawn.
The air you push is bitter, but I bite my tongue.
As fading night replaces all our brighter suns,
you never let it die.
We blunder on.
You’re losing hope that I can be your chosen one.
If you can’t see what I can’t say is shown and done,
then you’ll never let it die.
I don’t know why I could never bring myself to say it.
I don’t know how we wound up in this game we’re playing.
I know I want you.
