I can feel you pull away
And it's just as I lean in
And the timing cuts me wide open
With amiss I am betrayed
Slicing right through my thick skin
Yet I seek another hide
I'm asking you to…

Stay…
In my arms
Wait…
You're breaking me apart

I'm out here on a limb
But I'm holding out my hand
Hoping you can make the climb with me
But I'm carving in the bark
And it falls to where you stand
Trying silence on for size
I'm asking you to…

Stay…
In my arms
Wait…
You're breaking me apart

I miss you in my fingers
And valleys in between
It's odd how feeling lingers
For something yet unseen
There's ages between
My heart and my mouth
My veins throb with that
Which I can't spit out
Now I don't need much
Just presence in mind
And the assurance
Your ache matches mine
So stay…
Please don't pull away from me…
I'm asking you to…

Stay…
In my arms Wait…
You're breaking me apart
