Last night I settled into you like sleep
I find comfort in these walls
This must be where the angels keep themselves at night
This must be where I feel like I fall

I'll just lie here breathing, I don't wanna move
I'll just lie here thinking, I don't wanna speak
Cause there's a fine line here between where I feel and where I hurt
And I just wanna run to you, run from me

He says, you know I've been here for a long time now
And I should go it's getting late
But when the sun goes down and when the lights go out
I get tired of standing up straight
And she says wait

I feel a little useless now, a bit lonely, a bit scared
I'll admit that I'm losing myself
But you know it's been a long while since I felt I could feel safe, feeling small
And I can't guarantee that I'll remember what's supposed to happen now

But he says, you know that I've been here for a long time now
And I should go it's getting late
But when the sun goes down and when the lights go out
I get tired of standing up straight
And she says wait

He says I'm tired of standing up straight
And she says, I want you to know I'm feeling useless too
But for the time being, I like being small
I'll settle into you if you feel that you can settle into me
And I will find comfort like you find comfort
In the silence of it all

But he says, you know that I've been here for a long time now
And I should go it's getting late
And she says when the sun goes down I wanna make you feel
Like you don't have to stand up straight
Cause I know you're tired of standing up straight
And I don't feel that it's all that late
Yeah she says wait

Don't go, stay

Last night I settled into you like sleep
