I'm sitting so high on this pedestal
You need to tell me if I might feel if I want to fall
Because you don't know how hard it is to cry
And ever since you have said goodbye

And you can't feel this sad and not a little strong
You can't feel this bad and not a little wrong
How you gonna know all the answers
When you don't know how to question yet
And you don't know all the questions yet

And there's a look in your eyes of which we never speak
Will it make you too strong am I gonna feel so weak?
Well I'm not the same as you and I don't want the things you do
And all that preaching never let anyone know
You cannot reap what you cannot sow
You cannot reap what you cannot sow

And they never had the patience to let it be
Sometimes I've waited years for what I cannot see
It must be them not the whole world that lies
To neither do I wanna have to say goodbye

You can't feel this sad and not a little strong
You can't feel this bad and not a little wrong
How am I gonna know all the answers
If I don't know how to question it
And I don't know all the questions yet

And there's a look in your eye of which we never speak
Will it make me too strong are you gonna feel so weak?
Well I'm not the same as you and I don't have the things you do
And all this preaching never let anyone know
You cannot reap what you cannot sow
You cannot reap what you cannot sow

You can't feel this sad and not a little strong
Just a little strong, just a little strong
Just a little strong
