Something in my head, something in my heart
Learning how to lie about the way some people are
Further from myself and falling like a star
Back down on my knees, how did it get this far?
So why do we leave, baby? And why would we wait for anything at all?
The higher the good feeling, the further the fall

I’m thinking about what I’d do honey, I’m thinking about what I’d say
I was a fool, I was afraid, baby
I’m thinking about how I let my fear lead the way
I never realized you couldn’t save me

Subtle was her face, subtle was her hair
Subtle when she spoke, and subtle was the prayer
Subtle was the day she told me in the rain all that wouldn’t be
Subtle was the pain
So why do you say, baby, buy us a round of anything at all
The higher the good feeling, the further the fall

I’m thinking about what I’d do honey, I’m thinking about what I’d say
I was a fool, I was afraid, baby
I’m thinking about how I let my fear lead the way
I never realized you couldn’t save me

I’ve gotta decide, give it up even if I believe in this
So I’d suffer inside, holding on long after I know.. yeah yeah
The higher the good feeling, the further the fall

I’m thinking about what I’d do honey, I’m thinking about what I’d say
I was a fool, I was afraid, baby
I’m thinking about how I let my fear lead the way
I never realized you couldn’t save me
