lyrics

It takes more than ultraviolet to get near you
It takes more than simply waiting out the night
I couldn't quite explain to you my feelings
So I shut my borders, sealed myself up tight

I know there’s nothing I can do to make it better
I know your work is how you get through every day
And like a lonely hummingbird
You beat your wings to keep the world at bay

Take me in your arms
Take me in your arms
Hold me close
Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me go

It would help me if you took your medication
It would help me if you took a nine to five
I can try to keep myself contained
But nothing heals this gaping wound I hide

Take me in your arms
Take me in your arms
Hold me close
Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me go

I know you see this darkness deep within me
It’s like I’m crawling through that cave without a light
But the last line of that song is how I’m gonna prove you wrong
Darling, it’s not just your fight

Take me in your arms
Take me in your arms
Hold me close
Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me go

Take me in your arms
Take me in your arms
Hold me close
Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me go
