If I stand too close I might fall in
But if I'm too far gone I'll never win
If you believe in me
I might just wanna spend some time with you again

I'm afraid I tend to disappear
Into an anxious state when you draw near
There is no reasoning, it's quite a silly thing
But it's the way I've been for years

So I will understand if you don't stay
They say I'm great at first but then the magic fades
Into an awful hue of dismal views and pessimistic attitudes

All this distance, years of sweet resistance
Swirling overhead like angry clouds of of discontempt

I have apologized a billion times
When I've gone off the wall like Buster Rhymes
And pulled a stupid stunt that left you thinking
There was something wrong with me

You've thrown a few choice phrases at my way
And I've ignored them all as best I could
Except that time you put how I just can't commit
There was some truth in what you say

All this distance, years of sweet resistance
Swirling overhead like angry clouds of of discontempt

If I stand too close I might fall in
But if I'm too far gone I'll never win
And if you believe in me
I might just wanna spend some time with you again
I'll spend time with you again

If I stand too close I might fall in
But if I'm too far gone I'll never win
If you believe in me
I might just wanna spend some time with you again
