Verse 1:

In the distance I see you coming towards me
the closer you get
its harder to reach
I follow your lead
in hopes you'll give me what I need
Lonely I am, shining you are
The lights on you, I want you, you're too far.

Chorus:

Walking backwards upside down when you fight me
I still want you near
Despite the fact you're letting go
Everythings so clear
But you're holding me down, setting me back
I want you so bad, don't know how to act

Verse 2:

Slowly I start to think about the way you are
Reminded that I can't quit
Proving that you can't be far, and I don't this shit
Worse things happen as we get closer and closer
Oppisites attract, wishing you would go away

Chorus:

Walking forwards right side down when you fight me
I still want you here
Despite the fact you're letting go
Everythings so clear
But you're holding me down, setting me back
I want you so bad, don't know how to act

Bridge:

The reasons why I let you in
The reasons why I stay
I can't put my finger on it
I can't stand you anyway
You make me feel like shit
Turn around and walk away
I want to try
To be different
Without you
I don't need you
I don't know why
You're not far enough away from me
Get the fuck away from me
You're not far enough away from me
GET THE FUCK AWAY!

Final Chorus:

Running sideways when we talk
I don't want you here
Despite the fact you're letting go
Everythings so clear (so clear)
That you're holding me down, setting me back
I want you so little, don't know how to act
Singing: (closing)
Confusion.
Broken Inside.
Exclusion.
You had no right.
Delusion.
My mind made up.
Conclusion.
You're not the same close-up
I want you
I hate you
I need you
Don't know how to act (act echos)

    General CommentThis song is about a boy I liked but my conscience tells me that he isn't worthy of me, and how I figure it out and shit.
