Settle in for the night
It's the quiet life you've been waiting for
And all that you want it will be there
Well, don't you believe me?
Well, don't believe me anymore

I see you're scared as you stand on those stairs
Don't ask because you won't come back to me
My heart grows heavy, you can't start when you're not ready
I know it's fast
The hesitation dies but you won't outlast

By the time you see what's left
The distance will grow I suppose
You're all out of breath
And I should have known

It feels like nothing
But a hand keeps touching your heart
The first time you can't make sure
You better hold still, you're so smart

My heart, your hand
I swear I understand

    This song is about the anticipation of the future. Those two people will grow apart and he knows it but he will wait for her anyway, she touches his heart.
