Even at the bottom of midnight
when you’ve watched me come undone,
even under cover of daylight
When I’ve buttoned up my tongue,
I’m living in a world of stage fright,
while you wait to see me
undefended, not pretending now.

So put your arms around this hollow
like a castle made of sand.
Put a wall between this sorrow
and the riches in my hands.
It’s about as far as I go
to let you see my heart again;
it walks beside this frozen road.

Slow down, keep your eyes on me.
Slow down, cause you’re almost free
and all I want, yeah,
all I need to say:
it’s not so far away.
It's not so far away.

So high that you get over
and closer than your breath.
So low that you can’t get under
the moment of your death.
I did not come here for saving,
I’m just trying to accept
the way it is, the way it is.

Slow down, keep your eyes on me.
Slow down, cause you’re almost free
and all I want, yeah,
all I need to say:
you're not so far away.
You're not so far away.

You float along inside [indistinct]
You float along and fall away.
Float along [indistinct].
inside, yeah.

slow down keep your eyes on me.
slow down cause you’re almost free
and all I want yeah
all I need to say:
it’s not so far away.
It's not so far away.
