Wild Child - The Cracks

I’ll be the snake dear
you’ll make a run for it
we always said that I would never hold you back

we wear our parents' skin
keep all our demons in
until we slip through all the cracks

you stare me down now
i feel the fire burning
i don’t know if i’ve ever felt like this before
i know we just can’t win
before i let you in
already halfway out the door

(eye, eye, eye) x2

I bait the switch now
you might have fell for it
you always think i know exactly what i need
you start up every fight
i think i’m always right
i’m just surprised when i still bleed

you settle down now
i think you saw it coming
i guess you knew that i would always want you back
so now we say goodbye
i let you see me cry
until we slip back through the cracks

(eye, eye, eye) x2

and if i say i want you back
i want you back
what is to say if you come back
will it be what it was?
you went too far
went way too far
you went too far
went way too far

out again we go
i take it back
so we don’t hurt just like before
and every time it burns a little more
i’ll leave again but never learn to shut the door

(eye, eye, eye) x2

and if i say i want you back
i want you back
what is to say if you come back
will it be what it was?
you went too far
went way too far
we went too far
went way too far
