Lyrics

Verse 1:

The lights go out, and
We’re alone, and
I don’t know you at all
Oh, it’s just nature
It comes in waves, some
Human need that I wish to resolve

Chorus 1:

I guess I just got tired of waiting
I just got tired of saying
That nothing’s ever happened to me
I needed reassurance
I wanted to feel pretty
I wanted to feel strong

Verse 2:

We walk to my door
And Richmond’s quiet
You tell me about your family, your friends, your home life
And I think too far ahead
And I keep you from my friends
And hold my breath when I get home

Chorus 2:

Maybe I just got tired of waiting
Maybe I knew before it started
That you couldn’t be right for me
I needed reassurance
I wanted to feel pretty
I wanted to feel strong

Bridge:

Strong enough to fake a feeling for the sake of feeling anything at all
Strong enough to take the pieces that you gave to feel anything but small

Chorus 3 (Outro):

Cause I’m so sick of pining
Of falling the wrong way
Of missing the final step
I needed reassurance
I wanted to be tempting
I wanted you to long for me
To be wrong for me
To be something in between
