I go about my day

Bumping into the things that you say

You’re so far away

But I let you close enough to hurt me.

 

I drown in my dreams at night

Then I wake up but I don’t feel alive.

I know that we’ll both be fine

But ‘fine’ is not a feeling.

 

Now instead of soaring

My heart’s just sore, and I

Don’t know why to try anymore.

I search for a warning

On the parachute I didn’t wear

But it’s only thin air

And I’m falling.

 

I dodge everyone that I see

‘Cause they just want to fix me.

To hurt’s as human as to breathe

But that’s not how they view it, no.

I don’t need your lectures or talks

How I’m broken ‘cause I don’t get back up.

It’s not that I can’t be taught

But who made you the expert?

 

Now instead of soaring

My heart’s just sore, and I

Don’t know why to try anymore.

I search for a warning

On the parachute I didn’t wear

But it’s only thin air

And I’m falling.

 

So I spend my life

On anything but you.

And I see myself for the first time

The one I’ve turned into.

Without you

 

Now instead of soaring

My heart’s just sore, and I

Don’t know why to try anymore.

I search for a warning

On the parachute I didn’t wear

But it’s only thin air

And I’m falling.

 

Ooh it’s only thin air

And I’m falling.
