lyrics

I want to keep you close
and let everything you’ve got creep inside
I could be your host
where all of your fears and hopes reside
I’ve got a gift to use
my brain mirrors much better than you
So I can just lose myself in you, be a tangled two
I can’t be near you without being you

Hold tight, it’ll be fine, just try to hold up their load
By now I’ve lived many lives but none of my own
I can’t be near you ‘cause I’m trying to be one

I can’t get too close
‘cause everyone else just creeps inside
I can’t be the host for you or anyone else’s pain to hide
I’ve got a curse to lose
my brain mirrors much better than you
So I have to choose to be a recluse or entangle with you
I can’t be near you without being you

Hold tight, it’ll be fine, just try to hold up their load
By now I’ve lived many lives but none of my own
I can’t be near you ‘cause I’m trying to be one

I know I don’t even ask, “how are you?”
But don’t you know I’m always feeling it for you?
I know you don’t believe me,
but when you’re saying nothing I’m already hearing it
For tonight I could try to listen
despite the intrusion of watching you chew your cud

I want to keep you close,
but everyone else just creeps inside
I can’t be the host
for you or anyone else’s pain to hide
I’ve got a good excuse
my brain mirrors much better than you
But I can refuse to be a recluse
or entangled with you

Hold tight, it’ll be fine, just try to hold up their load
By now I’ve lived many lives but none of my own
