Lyrics:
Let me confess this
I’m sorry I don’t mean to be aggressive
But when you hold my hand you look so restless
I can feel it in your eyes
Dear, it must be
All in your head because I’m hiding nothing
I tell you everything you still don’t trust me
Am I so easy to despise?
Sometimes you say the right words
With the wrong inflection
So, now I’m unimpressed
By yesterday’s perfection
It’s hard to love myself
With someone else around
So though you make me weak
I won’t let my defenses down
I stay on my guard
‘Cause every time we fight you push me too far
Stop insisting that I take things too hard
You know I bruise just like a peach
Love this won’t do
Don’t pretend to know the pain I’ve been through
When everything you have was handed to you
You never even had to reach
Sometimes you say the right words
With the wrong inflection
So, now I’m unimpressed
By yesterday’s perfection
Don’t sweep me off my feet
I like it on the ground
So though you talk so sweet
I won’t let my defenses down
