Lyrics


I was taking my time with you

'Cause I knew it was gonna last
Suddenly out of nowhere
You said we're moving way too fast
You can't hold on
So where did we go wrong?

Searching for the right words
That you knew you didn't have
It's right there at the tip of your tongue
Yet every time you open up your mouth
It climbs right back into yourself

If I could break your heart
Just to see what you're made of and what you're afraid of
I would break your heart
Just to see what's inside you keeping us apart

You thought you were escaping
But you ran right into me
Now I'm falling over myself
When, baby, you're the only one I need
You're always here, just out of reach

If I could break your heart
Just to see what you're made of and what you're afraid of
I would break your heart
Just to see what's inside you keeping us apart

When nothing seems to be going your way
You just leave it all behind
You never have that much to say
So I hang on to every word like it's a clue
Piece by piece, I'd rebuild you

If I could break your heart
Just to see what you're made of and what you're afraid of
I would break your heart
Just to see what's inside you keeping us apart
