lyrics

Like an acrobat on high wire
You’ve been balancing for the longest while
10,000 hours you’ve spent practicing
But you’ll fall eventually in spite of your denial

Everybody here just wants to love you

Better leave yourself alone

So skilled at sifting out the negative
That sour aftertaste is dripping from your lips
Remember what you said you’d never be?
It’s already happening, you know it is, you don’t believe that…

Everybody here just wants to love you

Better leave yourself alone

Every second is a new mistake
Every kiss is another heartbreak
Every chance comes a little late
It’s all the same, it’s all the same

How can someone so true and smart...
Be so good at falling apart?
You say nobody understands
I know, I know, that’s exactly how I am

Better leave yourself alone
(Everybody here just wants to love you)

(Hey, what do you know…like father like son.)
