Hold Me Close

There’s trouble out there, I have seen it in your face
All the madness it leaves an empty faith in you
The little things can start to take over your life
And I admit they sometimes keep me up at night with you

For you, I’d split the world in two

Hold me close, don’t leave like the rest
Cus I spend too much time inside my head
I’m a mess; I’m fragile at best
The heart is only as open as we allow
And mine can’t keep up with how I’m aging now

The past is nothing more than visions and ideas
Imaginary places, imaginary fears
And I’m way too young to be this bitter sort of man
So wake me up and help me do the best I can for you

For you, I’d split the world in two

Hold me close, don’t leave like the rest
Cus I spend too much time inside my head
And I struggle with the words to make amends
When I’m feeling down you’ve got to keep me close
Cus I’m way too tough to let my feelings go
