Wrap me in warmth and make me feel loved
I've been so far removed from the things you dreamed of
The coldness that runs me will freeze me until I burst

I forget how it was I forget everything
I trace fingers down lines where the creasing begins
You fold more than I fold and that's not the way it has been

We can try if we want but it won't be the same
Take walks in the park but it won't be the same
Pull my heart from your arms as you wrap yourself around me

Darling, you can't keep running to see me
Put your hands to your heart and say it feels empty
Lick the wounds on your sides and stay with you until they dry

I'll stay part of your life, say you fit like a glove
I feel so far removed from the people you love
Hold me close like a shield and squeeze me until it hurts

We can try if we want but it won't be the same
Take walks in the park but it won't be the same
Pull my heart from your arms as you wrap yourself around me

I don't want the world to spread you so thin
To hold you, control you, get under your skin
To watch you grow old when the others have gone
The reasons to hold on, they die one by one

We can try if we want but it won't be the same
Take walks in the park but it won't be the same
Pull my heart from your arms as you wrap yourself around me
Around me
