I’m tired of watching you fall
You’re so eager to climb high
You always give it you all
But it’s a long drop from the sky

And I guess I’m the same way
And sometimes I fall for it too
That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t play
Or claim that we never flew

If it ever seems like I’m not there
It’s just because I’m scared
Don’t ever think it’s because I don’t care
If it seems like I’m not there (x2)

I see it all happen ahead of time
But there’s not much that I can do
And you can tell when I’ve jumped too far
You’re ready when I fall through

Sometimes I don’t know what to say
To make you see you’re still alive
And I know it hurts and the world turns gray
But you pull through and you survive


I can’t tell if you’re a bit on edge
When I meet him the first time
I just want to let him know
He’s walking a fine line
You deal with these things quietly
But I don’t hang behind
And if he’s like the last one was
This time he’ll hear my mind
