I know what you're doing, I see it all too clear
I only taste the saline when I kiss away your tears
You really had me going, wishing on a star
But the black holes that surround you are heavier by far

I believed in your confusion, you were so completely torn
Well, it must have been that yesterday was the day that I was born
There's not much to examine, there's nothing left to hide
You really can't be serious if you have to ask me why, I say goodbye

'Cause I am barely breathing and I can't find the air
I don't know who I'm kidding, imaging you care
And I could stand here waiting, a fool for another day
But I don't suppose it's worth the price, worth the price
The price that I would pay

Everyone keeps asking, what's it all about?
I used to be so certain and I can't figure out
What is this attraction? I only feel the pain, there's nothing left
To reason and only you to blame, will it ever change?

'Cause I am barely breathing and I can't find the air
I don't know who I'm kidding, imaging you care
And I could stand here waiting, a fool for another day
But I don't suppose it's worth the price, worth the price
The price that I would pay

I've come to find, I may never know
Your changing mind, is it friend or foe?
I rise above, or sink below with every time
You come and go, please don't come and go

'Cause I am barely breathing and I can't find the air
I don't know who I'm kidding, imaging you care
And I could stand here waiting, a fool for another day
But I don't suppose it's worth the price, worth the price
The price that I would pay

I know what you're doing, I see it all too clear
