I tried to tell you how I feel but it came out wrong
It wasn't what I meant, it was much too strong
but sometimes baby, I just see red
I just see red

And before I had a chance to apologize
You went off alone and I realized
Tonight I'm going to face an empty bed
Hangin' by a thread

Chorus:
Hangin' on the hope that you still care
A tiny strand of rope is all we share
I want to take back the things I said
Hangin' by a thread

I don't know what's going on in your mind
But I know I'm in a race against time
And all I see is trouble up ahead
trouble up ahead

I close my eyes and see a bright razor blade
cutting through the plans that we made
a picture of a future in my head
hangin' by a thread.

Chorus:
Hangin' on the hope that you still care
A tiny strand of rope is all we share
I want to take back the things I said
Hangin' by a thread

Bridge:
Before it's all lost to the wind
Hear me out again
I've got something on my chest
And it won't let me rest, let me rest
let me rest, let me rest
