Watch your expectations crumble.
I hear the things
Are the same things you never,
Never knew that you never wanted.
I take those things with me to sleep.

I'm not the one you want.
There is no time.
I don't think I can.

How hard can you push on me
And how can I act differently
Without making this something more
Than I am one to put up with?

I won't let a heartbreak happen.
I can see the harm;
I had a net for August.
It's safe,
Let's not slow it down,
We won't wear it out.
We time travel.

I'm not the one you want.
There is no time.
I don't think I can.

How hard can you push on me
And how can I act differently
Without making this something more
Than I am one to put up with?

I'm not the one you want.
There is no time.
I don't think I can.

How hard can you push on me
And how can I act differently
Without making this something more
Than I am one to put up with?

How hard can you push on me
And how can I act differently
Without making this something more
Than I am one to put up with?
