Whatever you're searching for,
you won't find it here.
But I'll admit, something keeps pulling me back
into your atmosphere.

I'm really good at mistakes.
All the marks I left on the page.
They seem to never wanna disappear.

Why do you still come around,
when all I do is push, push, push you away.
I really, really wanna take a chance on you,
but I, I hesitate.

I'm afraid to start.
Don't wanna break your heart.
Just finished picking up the pieces from this mess.

I never meant to hurt nobody.
But now I tend to move slowly.
Cause if I ever slip from your fingertips.
My name will be stained on your lips.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

It feels like everybody's watching
To see what my next move is.
Do I proceed with caution
Or do I just dive in.

I'm fine with taking it slow.
Enjoy life on my own.

But I can be confusing sometimes.
I know.

I'm surprised you're still around.
Baby all I do is push, push, push you away.

I really, really wanna take a chance on you.
But I, I need to make sure
This isn't just a phase.

I'm afraid to start.
Don't wanna break your heart.
Just finished picking up the pieces from this mess.

I never meant to hurt nobody.
But now I tend to move slowly.
Cause if I ever slip from your fingertips.
My name will be stained...

I'm afraid to start.
Don't wanna break your heart.
Just finished picking up the pieces from this mess.

I never meant to hurt nobody.
But now I tend to move slowly.
Cause if I ever slip from your fingertips.
My name will be stained on your lips.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

Nothing wrong with taking my time with love.
I don't wanna be the bad guy again.
I don't wanna be the bad guy again.

Still working out the kinks in my tainted love.
Colors played out from my heart to his
Different shades that I can't predict.

Nothing wrong with taking my time with love.
