about

This song is about exploring all the ways you can hold a person - in your head, in your arms, in your heart, in your hands - and how important it is to recognize that you never have to let go, but you can't hold anyone unless you have room for them.

lyrics

I find it's just a waste
Trying to make things clear
Trying to explain myself again

And if it's all the same
It's always been the same
We're always making the same mistakes again

People come and go
They never stay too long
With one foot out the door they say goodbye

And if it's all a waste
Well, maybe I'm to blame
I couldn't keep the pace or say goodbye

And if I fall too fast
I might forget your name
I might forget your first impression's old
And if I go too far
I might forget your breath
I might forget your heart beats soft and low

I hate to feel so small
I hate to feel afraid
I'd love to see the stars spell out your name

And if it's not the end
I'd hate to let it go
I'd love to hear a friend call out my name

And if I fall too fast
I might forget your name
I might forget your first impression's old
And if I go too far
I might forget your breath
I might forget your heart beats soft and low
