You’re scared I'm gonna hurt you
Would I?
Trouble and desert you
Could I?
I can prove you wrong in a second.
Listen to my song before you step in...
There's something about you, I need
And when I'm not around you, I bleed.
I can hear your voice when I'm sober.
Calling to me over and over again.

You doubt the benefit, say we've been over it
And I can't do a thing to change your mind…
And yet it's obvious, that you're still part of this,
Explosions every time our paths align.

Or am I blind...

You think I'm gonna harm you
Would I?
Dazzle and disarm you
Could I?
Told you that my song is my weapon.
Better sing along if you step in.
I’m so glad I found you, honey
Even though you won't stop running
You can build your wall even higher,
I would climb it over and over again.

I’m getting tired of this, but I won’t fold because
I know you're trying to see how far I bend.
You've got to let me in. It's getting cold and
There are wolves who want to drag me to their den...

But here I stand...

You say I ruined it, but it was perfectly
Impossible for me to be your friend.
I sat through all your shit, hoping you’d notice me,
And now I’m losing sight of who I am.

Never again.

Sorry to disturb you, baby
Nobody deserves you, maybe...
