lyrics

I woke up on the wrong side of the afternoon
Disconcerting words dancing around my head
Did I say too much or not enough?
Perspective depends on where you're standing
I was lost when I learned how to shut it off
Been tearing down walls since that day and still
Like your favorite Futures song goes
"I've always been the easy kill"
I guess I always will

I was one step shy of the thinnest line
Between folding my hand and laying all my cards on the table
But I went all in and I let you in
It was close enough to the real thing
It was close enough to the real, the real thing
As far as I know

I made my way to the living room
Where we spent a lifetime in just a few nights
When I barely knew you
And you were a promise on this side of paradise
It was here that threw my doubts against the walls
In hopes that something I couldn't reach might fall into place

I was one step shy of the thinnest line
Between folding my hand and laying all my cards on the table
But I let you in, I let you in
I let you in
It was close enough to the real thing
It was close enough to the real, the real thing

And I know it's true that I deserve to be set aside
I just wanted you to know I tried
To cross that window that opened up long ago
Just when I caught sight of something beautiful on the other side
It slammed shut on me
And ever since then I've been distant, cold, and shaking

And I'm one step shy of that thinnest line
