From Midnight Sun EP


I know that you didn’t want it to show
But when nobody came to your aid
You felt betrayed
Clearly it’s been anything but easy
When I suddenly get out of hand
I understand

But I’m not quite sure what you mean
Telling me I’ve released the guillotine
When you’re the one
Talking up a storm and then some

Hold on you’ve been reading my mind all wrong
When you felt that you were so unfair
I didn’t care
And maybe it was when you thought you saw through me
That you filled up with regret
Yeah, that I’d get

But I just don’t know how it’s brave
Asking me to unleash a tidal wave
When you’re someone
Looking for a reason to run

So now we’ve locked our minds
And there’s a fortress that our hearts hide behind
If we learn how to let them go
We’d act like we don’t know
But it’s alright, upon our common ground we stand and fight
And on the subject of sympathy
I think we’d both agree

‘Cause what’s the point putting up a wall
When each opinion takes the form of a wrecking ball?
When you’re the one talking up a storm and then some
And I’m no fun, looking for a reason to run
It can’t be done
It’s every other conversation
