I know what you're doing
I see it all too clear
I only taste the saline
When I kiss away your tears

You really had me going,
Wishing on a star
But the black holes that surround you
Are heavier by far

I believed in your confusion,
You were so completely torn
It must have been that yesterday
Was the day that I was born

There’s not much to examine,
There’s nothing left to hide
You really can’t be serious
If you have to ask me why
I say goodbye

‘Cause I am barely breathing
And I can’t find the air
I don’t know who I’m kidding
Imagining you care
And I could stand here waiting
A fool for another day
I don’t suppose it’s worth the price,
It's worth the price
The price that I would pay

And everyone keeps asking,
What's it all about?
I used to be so certain
And I can't figure out

What is this attraction?
I only feel the pain
There's nothing left to reason
And only you to blame
Will it ever change?

‘Cause I am barely breathing
And I can’t find the air
I don’t know who I’m kidding
Imagining you care
And I could stand here waiting
A fool for another day
I don’t suppose it’s worth the price,
It's worth the price
The price that I would pay
But I'm thinking it over anyway
I'm thinking it over anyway, yeah, yeah, yeah

I've come to find
I may never know
Your changing mind
Is it friend or foe?

I rise above
Or sink below
Every time
You come and go
Please don't come and go, oh woah

Cause I am barely breathing
And I can’t find the air
I don’t know who I’m kidding
Imagining you care
And I could stand here waiting
A fool for another day
I don’t suppose it’s worth the price,
Worth the price
The price that I would pay
But I'm thinking it over anyway, yeah
I'm thinking it over anyway, yeah, yeah, yeah, ooh

I know what you're doing
I see it all too clear
