Lyrics: 

I know what you're doing, I see it all too clear.
I only taste the saline, when I kiss away your tears.
You really had me going, wishing on a star.
But the black holes that surround you, are heavier by far.

I believed in your confusion, you were so completely torn.
It must have been that yesterday - was the day that I was born!
There's not much to examine, nothing left to hide.
You really can't be serious if you have to ask me why.
I say goodbye...

'Cause I am barely breathing
And I can't find the air
Don't know who I'm kidding
Imagining you care.

And I could stand here waiting -
a fool for another day.
I don't suppose it's worth the price, 'worth the price
the price that I would pay.

And everyone keeps asking, what's it all about?
I used to be so certain and I can't figure out.
What is this attraction? I only feel the pain.
Nothing left to reason - and only you to blame.
Will it ever change?

'Cause I am barely breathing,
and I can't find the air.
'Don't know who I'm kidding,
imagining you care.

And I could stand here waiting -
a fool for another day.
I don't suppose it's worth the price, it's worth the price
the price that I would pay.

But I'm thinking it over - anyway
I'm thinking it over anyway.

'Come to find, I may never know.
Your changing mind, is it friend or foe?
I rise above, or sink below.
With every time, you come and go.
Please don't come and go.

'Cause I am barely breathing,
and I can't find the air.
Don't know who I'm kidding,
imagining you care.

And I could stand here waiting -
A fool for another day.
But I don't suppose it's worth the price, 'worth the price
the price that I would pay.

But I'm thinking it over anyway.
I'm thinking it over anyway.

Well, I know what you're doing.. I see it all too clear..
