Hearing all about How we’re swinging in full bloom It’s the best thing we can do Do you wanna dance? Step in step we move Spinning records in your room Holding on real tight To every breath we drew Painted with your silhouette I can’t bear the thought Of ever losing you Singing "Tintin in Tibet" When I Was A Child, Pale Horses, Cardinal, and The Bearer of Bad News Everything we love All wax and digital Connecting me and you Holding on real tight To every breath we drew Painted with your silhouette I can’t bear the thought Of ever losing you Singing "Tintin in Tibet" Holding on real tight To every breath we drew Painted with your silhouette I can’t bear the thought Of ever losing you Singing "Tintin in Tibet"

Try to put me into your little boxes On the hillside Please don’t picture me in the perfect family It hurts my insides I don’t want to be the smart one anymore Just to act right I don’t want to be the good one anymore Just to act nice Maybe I’ll wait for my master’s degree I hope that’s alright Maybe I'll study some form of psychology To fix my own mind I don’t want to be the smart one anymore Just to act right I don’t want to be the good one anymore Just to act nice I don’t want to be the smart one anymore Just to act right I don’t want to be the good one anymore Just to act nice

Hit my head, another fucking time today And I’m so full of regret I really miss All the things we used to do Another month in the dark I bet I can’t do another day in my bed I think I’ll go insane Someone please give me a hand Pull me out of the drain Drain Drain Drain So it goes, spinning out of my control There’s nothing I can do Except maybe wear a helmet Anything to get me through Concussion number two I can’t do another day in my bed I think I’ll go insane Someone please give me a hand Pull me out of the drain Drain Drain Drain

There’s a silence growing Between the bed sheets of our love Of our love, of our love I’ll keep grasping loose ends They are frayed, I’ll tie them up Tie them up, tie them up Love, I feel like I’m a prisoner To a faith I hardly half-believe There is so much shit that I’ve held onto Could I know, Lord, have I been deceived? Have I been deceived? Have I been deceived? You say sit with questions Hold them open in your hands In your hands, in your hands But I'm tired and ruined A burdened goat, no promised land Love, I feel like I’m a prisoner To a faith I hardly half-believe There is so much shit that I’ve held onto Could I know, Lord, have I been deceived? Have I been deceived? Have I been deceived? Have I been deceived?

It’s hard to write a song When things are going good in this life This life that is so long Healthy for now, I hope I’m right So I’m holding on tight I don’t want to let you go tonight So I’m holding on tight I don’t want to let you go tonight Romantic at heart I think I want more than just this compartmentalizing My heart I think I want more than just this part So I’m holding on tight I don’t want to let you go tonight So I’m holding on tight I don’t want to let you go tonight Don’t want to do you wrong Don’t want to do you wrong Don’t want to do you wrong

We both know where this is going, pretty sure Nothing needs to be different I’m just falling more and more Please just ask me the question, let’s move forward If timing isn’t the issue, Then why don’t you tell me What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for, baby? Held me at my darkest, through the storm Though I’m often disastrous I can feel you more and more I know that a few years isn’t much But I know this love that I’m feeling Will never fall out of touch What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for, baby? What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for, baby?
