He makes me smaller with every embrace that I ask for
Sit between the sheets of paper he writes on and I
I keep on shrinking and he stays the same
I keep on shrinking and he stays the same

Keeps every dollar he earns under his pillow while he sleeps
Fits me in the palm of his hand and I'm restless oh
I keep on shrinking and he stays the same
I keep on shrinking and he stays the same

He's gonna make me watch him leave
Done all the things that he asked of me
He makes me fall, makes me fall to my knees
Smaller than my mother, he looks down on me

He drifts off slowly, it's like he can't talk in silence
Kicks me in his sleep as he dreams of another oh
I keep on shrinking and he stays the same
I keep on shrinking and he stays the same

He's gonna make me watch him leave
Done all the things that he asked of me
He makes me fall, makes me fall to my knees
Smaller than my mother, he looks down on me

Used up all of my words
I can't read him anymore
Used up all of my words
I can't read him anymore
