Foot in my mouth
I can’t take a step
Because it’s all I can do
To swallow my words
And I won’t cross the street
Because the cars are flying by
It’s all I can do to save myself
I’m not sure about you
You can handle yourself
You’re a big kid now
You can do it on your own
It slowly slips away from
It slowly drops out of my reach
I kept it here to keep it safe
What happens when it runs away?
It hurts so bad to see it fall
It’s even worse to lose it all
It’s something that was meant to be
I knew it’d break eventually
It’s something that was meant to be
I knew it’d break eventually
It hurts so bad to see if fall
It’s even worse to lose it all
It seems as if it’s running back
It’s going to back to what it knows
A common misconception
And it’s headed for election
A slogan’s left to be decided
You’re unlikely to forget what I did
One last time you’ll tell me off
And throw me off the scent of you
I won’t forget the things you said
It’s hard to when they're written down
You’re words they are like gravity
They cut me down and cut me deep
And oh, you will go
Down for the count
A blow to the head
You’re better of dying
The tunnel is thinning
The light is reminding
Of a time you knew
And wish that you had back
Don’t give up; your hope's not lost.

    General CommentIt seems like he thinks this other person is so much better than him; braver, smarter, more intelligent. And he thinks this person has so much going for him, but this person doesn't think so.

    "It’s even worse to lose it all
    It’s something that was meant to be
    I knew it’d break eventually
    It’s something that was meant to be"
    I think the "it" is the person.
