lyrics

Standing and bouncing on toes
Pushing and pulling our bones
Feeling our insides explode
Knowing that we’re not alone

Acting my age gets older the older I get
Being myself means being what I am not yet
Reaching across means the fear that I’m losing my hand
Acting my age gets older the older I am

I set it all, I set it all, I set it all apart
You settle in, I squirm around, you make a grab at my heart

Acting my age gets tougher and tougher to do
Asking for help is asking for someone to lose
Acting my age is tougher and tougher to prove

I fuck around, I fuck around, I fuck around like a kid
You fire back, I shrug it off, and I forget what I did

I’m wondering how to go about this mess
I’m wondering if it’s best that I regret

I pick a scab, I pick a scab, I pick a scab and watch it bleed
I dig a hole, I make a scar, I think I know what I need
I do it wrong, I do it wrong, I do it wrong ‘til it’s done
You pull me in, you pull me in, you pull me in, you pull me in
I push away, I push away, I push away ‘til I’m gone
