I'm holding you close to me tonight
Feeling your chest expand; breathing in & out
We're trying to speak but words collide
You know what you mean to me; let’s stop this pointless fight

You're piercing the silence with your words
My back isn't listening; it’s heard this all before
Together but feeling so alone
You turn and with tears in your eyes; you ask me "what went wrong?"

Beds are for sleeping (and other stuff)
Not telling lies (you're paranoid)
Love breaks when you bend it (it's not advised)
At odds, we collide (we're paralyzed)

There's an obvious end to this charade
Words on the tips of our tongues; healing scars we've made
I swallow my pride and turn to speak
There’s no-one there next to me; "We're too far gone darling"
