The Wire Lyrics

by Haim

You know I'm bad at communication
It's the hardest thing for me to do
And it's said, it's the most important part
That relationships go through
And I gave it all away just so I could say that
Well I know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anyway

You know there's no rhyme
Or reason for the way it turned out to be
I didn't go and try to change my mind
Not intentionally
I know it's hard to hear me say it
But I can't bear to stay in
I just know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anyway

Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire, oh
But I just couldn't take it
I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when I came
Down to the wire

No need to use your imagination
Try and make what you want it to be
Because I'm sorry I did what I did but
It came naturally
And I gave it all away, just so I could say that
Well I know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anyway

When I tried to keep myself together
After all the opportunities
I tried to stay true to you
And tried to do what you wanted from me
And I gave it all away
Just to hear you say that
Well I know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anyway

Always keep your heart locked tight
Don't let your mind retire, oh
But I just couldn't take it
I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
Ooh yeah

Always keep your heart locked tight
Don't let your mind retire
Always keep your heart locked tight
Don't let your mind retire, oh
But I just couldn't take it
I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
But I just couldn't take it
I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
Ooh yeah yeah yeah yeah
No no no no
It felt right
It felt right
It felt right
It felt right
No no no no
But I fumbled it when it came
Down to the wire
