lyrics

what can I do to raise your hopes?
will this face I’ve made break your mope?
I can’t force you to learn to cope
you make me feel five years old
you make me feel five years old

to move a sprain could tear the tissue
i’d crack a bone before i’d miss you
you’re positive you’d never shout
i’d squeeze my hand til blood came out
i’d squeeze my hand til blood came out

when I’m cold is when I miss you the most
your arm around my shoulder like a boast
I can finally breathe and everything slows
you make me feel five years old
you make me feel five years old

i ran water to drown the noise
from instruments you never employed
if i pull you close to me
you’d squeeze my hand until it bleeds
you’d squeeze my hand until it bleeds

every atom on the planet collides
when you raise your voice in a fight
as if all that’s at stake is your life
then I recall each of your sighs
in case one doubles as a slight
