lyrics

you're most fragile in your evening clothes
most tender when you just can't lose
how far can we take this before it starts to break us?

this is what you wanted
so why are you still crying?
this is what you wanted
so why'd you quit trying?
I think we need some space to get back what you need
cause I can't help but hurt you
it's the downside of honesty

you're most disarming when you're quick to strike
most engaging when we're least alike
how far can we take this before it starts to break us?

this is what you wanted
so why are you still crying?
this is what you wanted
so why'd you quit trying?
I think we need some space to get back what you need
cause I can't help but hurt you
it's the downside of honesty

so this is what it feels like to win?
