Sometimes I get up just to watch you sleep
You know when I get high, it’s just to be near you
But this can’t sustain

You’re so soft, soft as your voice takes me apart & gives me away
Piece by piece, day after day

You can hold me down, I know you’d like to change but you don’t know how
Everything looks great here in your shadow of doubt
You can still hold me down

I get so tired, I try to turn you around
& All of my words they keep falling by the wayside, eyes wide
You’ve got nothing to say still, you can’t turn away now

You can hold me down, I know you’d like to change but you don’t know how
Yeah, everything it’s great here in your shadow down
I want to hold you the way that you hold me

I need just touch to move me, I need you who sees right through me
I can’t stand to hear you say, “Your yesterdays were all my mistakes”
Why do I give so much when you give up?

You can hold me down, I know you’d like to change but you don’t know how
Everything looks great here in your shadow of doubt
But I’m going to hold you the way that you hold me down
