Fear and sweat, my muscles ache
I smile but it's just a fake
I fade away, it troubles me what you're gonna say
Just a day away, and you will be here to stay

I wait and I wait, and what I really hate
Is the panic that stops me from breathing
My knees hit the floor, and I panic more
Until you open my door...

This whole world could explode around us
Will they ever know we had a third chance?

I wait and I wait, and what I really hate
Is the panic that stops me from breathing
My knees hit the floor, and I panic more
Until you open my door...

    General CommentI like the lyrics a little, but I wasn't really interested in this as a whole like I was with On Most Surfaces. It seems like it's about a relationship.. like pre wedding jitters or something or other
