I've got a heart that's in my mind. It's broken, beating out of time. It's you. And when you look me in the eyes I wonder why you try to hide the truth because I know it.
Well you're fast and bright. You burn through the trees of a summer night. You had it bad, I knew.
So take me out of you. I would've noticed if you told me. I hurt you bad even if I didn't try to when you smile a little wider.
Because you love to hold what you can't have. Grab the disappointment by the hand. He'll pull you up and take you down. Always go for the higher ground when you do. And I'm not it.
I'm just hands you can grab and I'm a sucker for the words that you don't have. But you have it bad, I know.
And I don't know how to say this. I don't know how to pay this tollbooth man for my rainy afternoons. Because all he did was give me guidance to the heat of awkward silence and now I feel unfortunate for you.
You can be so uptight in the back room. In a past room. But I fear I've lost hold of all the genuine devotion that I'm supposed to have. You can be toxic and repressed when you don't want to. But I fear that I've fallen to caring less than I have to.
When you smile a little wider.
