lyrics

i held my breath as i counted to ten
head rushing with thoughts, here i go again
cause with long words and precious thoughts, you've got me going
i'm slipping up, ready for this to be fought, and it might be showing
but i still held my breath as i counted to ten

can it be ignored,
i've wanted this before
and you just keep crawling back to me
look into your eyes,
feel ready for the fight
so pick up your pen and write one for me

about me and you in the dead of night
chasing our thoughts until the first sign of sunlight
with the heat on high, windows closed
for the first time in a while i think i feel alright

cause as i my heart was beating out of pace as i sat and gazed into your face
i'm begging you to write another line

about me and you in the dead of night,
we'd go so far
if you weren't so shy
if you weren't so shy

i held my breath as i'm waiting for your text
where did we go wrong, have i screwed this up again?
can't help but think it's all my fault
i was only trying
nothing in return
no, you're just not trying
i've given up on breaths as i'm waiting for your text

but how can i be sure
if there is something more
i'm falling and there's no one there to break my fall
my heart is beating fast,
until now we've seemed to last
open your arms and help me land

cause when it's me and you in the dead of night
chasing our thoughts until the first sign of sunlight
with the heat on high, windows closed
for the first time in a while i think i feel alright

cause as i my heart was beating out of pace as i sat and gazed into your face
i'm begging you to write another line

about me and you in the dead of night,
we'd go so far
if you weren't so shy
if you weren't so shy
if i wasn't so shy
if we weren't so shy

oh help me now i can't look back
you've steered me off the track
no hoping here, it's praying now
i'll pick you up at 8, how does that sound?

cause when it's me and you in the dead of night
chasing our thoughts until the first sign of sunlight
with the heat on high, windows closed
for the first time in a while i think i feel alright

cause as i my heart was beating out of pace as i sat and gazed into your face
i'm begging you to write another line

about me and you in the dead of night,
we'd go so far
if you weren't so shy
if you weren't so shy
if i wasn't so shy
if we weren't so shy
