Right step in the wrong direction
Hesitant with no hesitation
You know where you don't belong
It all goes wrong
So wrong

Up to the act to the chemical fiction
There's no such person, I'll always pretend
For me to be somebody
Anyone but me
(So go)
Hold me up to break me down
Just pick me up to push me down

Take these wings off my shoulders
I'm ready to fly
Push me off or push me over
It's too hard to decide tonight
My word is breaking down tonight
My arms are breaking off tonight
So keep your balance
And keep your eyes closed so tight tonight

Farewell to the dreams we wish for
Kiss goodbye
Come on, kiss it once more
And all their best was bigger than you
It's all too big for you

I'm out of breath and I can't slow down
Enough is enough
The plot has burned out
Breathe in, breathe out
It's all for you
It's all we can do
(So go)

Hold me up to break me down
Just pick me up to push me down
So go away

Take these wings off my shoulders
I'm ready to fly
Push me off or push me over
It's too hard to decide tonight
My word is breaking down tonight
My arms are breaking off tonight
Keep your balance
And keep your eyes closed so...

So hold on to me
Tell me every, everything
Say everything to me
So hold on to me
Tell me every, everything
Say everything to me
So hold on to me
Tell me every, everything
Say everything to me, please

Take these wings off my shoulders
I'm ready to fly
Push me off or push me over
It's too hard to decide tonight
My word is breaking down tonight
My arms are breaking off tonight
So keep your balance
And keep your eyes closed so...

    General CommentALOT of the lyrics are wrong in this post..

    but this song to me is about trying to get away from someone who is no good for you, but at the same time a big part of your life.
    just like he says this person will "build him up" but then "break him down" and "pull him up" to "push him back down"; you feel like this one person puts life into you and inspires you, makes you happy, but then lets you down and hurts you..again and again and again.
    you want the strength to get away from this person but you feel like theyre already a part of you.
    he wants to break off his wings (that person supporting him) and fly away by himself without that person's help. He wants to be free of this person and try to move on.
    But at the same time it's hard to do that because who can fly without wings?

    I love this song
