I see the lines that connect me to you.
I see the lines that divide us into groups.
I know the ways that we'll stay the same.
And I know the ways we'll pretend that we can change.

I see the lines on your face.
I know that there's a toll this takes on you.
I don't want to be the one who breaks you or weighs you down.

I want to tell you that I'm alright.
I might slow down or sigh sometimes.
I'm just shaking it off.
I'm just telling myself not to let go.

I'll stare out at rooms that used to be full.
I'll weather storms and sleepwalk through the lulls.
I'll close my eyes and do what needs to be done,
I'll shut my mouth and just try and have some fun.

It's not a question of what anyone deserves.
I don't know what you've seen or what you've heard.
I've never had any reason to believe
That we get what we want or even what we need.

But I'm alright.
I might slow down or sigh sometimes.
I'm just shaking it off.
I'm just telling myself not to let go.

I want to tell you that I'm alright.
I might slow down or sigh sometimes.
I'm just shaking it off.
I'm just telling myself not to let go.
Not to let go.

I'll be holding on.
I'll be holding on.

I'm alright.
I might slow down or sigh sometimes.
I'm just shaking it off.
I'm just telling myself not to let go.
