I?m just minding my own business, you are looking for a reason
To get up and walk away.
I?m just opening the window, you are standing at the front door
Letting in the rain.
Now there?s nothing left to give, now there?s nothing left to lose
To make you love me too.

I?m lifting more than I can handle and so I try to get this heart insured.
I?m sipping more than I can swallow
As this game you?re playing makes me insecure.
There?s no need for compensation
I?ll just be giving you, giving you a reason.

I?ll just let you do the driving as you slowly are forgetting
My every touch of love.
You are rewriting the story, erasing every mention of me
Then shelving all the books.
Now there?s nothing left to give, now there?s nothing left to lose
To make you love me too.

One more time please define just what it would mean to let go.
One more time please rewind, can?t we just start all over?
