Last night I thought I'd just go ahead and pull my hair out
I hate to wait around for failure I'd rather do it on my own
Then wait
The nervousness never fades

This not an invitation
For you to crawl inside of me
This is not your love song to analyze
More like a good sleep remedy

This is song I wanted to write about this girl I know
But I know you'd all just twist it into what you wanted me to say
And mean
You don't know a thing

All these things I want to tear right out of me
Like how it matters how I care what people think
It's you it's you it's you it's you
We've got to get out of here before it kills us

I'm going to put my heart right on the page and let It bleed right through
There's nothing else to do
The words, they're eaten all
The words The words they want to Eat this up

Runners take your places
Ready on your marks
Gun goes, they're off
Runners leave the start

I watch you as your run away
With part of my heart
I'm stuck here at the start
You finished with my heart
