These words are from my tongue and lips,
And I don't have control over this.
Can you see that this just won't work?
You're hanging from my fingertips,
And I can feel you start to slip.
I know this is what you want.
Writing it out again,
(Writing it out again)
Writing it out again.

Face the words that hurt you,
'Cause I won't be there.
Turn around and pick up your hat.
I'm so scared of what to do.
Calm because I'll be alone.
I never wanted to be afraid.

Now I'm listening,
Barely breathing,
Still wide awake from my dreams.
Now you know I was the definite boy.
This will be alright.

Face the words that hurt you,
'Cause I won't be there.
Turn around and pick up your hat.
I'm so scared of what to do.
Calm because I'll be alone.
I never wanted to be afraid.

Tell me, oh why, once again,
(Time again)
Words I don't comprehend,
(This time)
I will be alright.
I'm telling, oh why,
(Time again)
Words I don't comprehend,
(This time)
It will be alright.
Telling, oh why,
(This time again)
Words I don't comprehend.
Be all right.

Face the words that hurt you,
'Cause I won't be there.
Turn around and pick up your hat.
I'm so scared of what to do.
Calm because I'll be alone.
I never wanted to be afraid.

Oh why, once again,
Words I don't comprehend.
Be all right.
