Still a little bit of your taste in my mouth
Still a little bit of you laced with my doubt
Still a little hard to see what's going on

Still a little bit of your ghost your witness
Still a little bit of your face I haven't kissed
You step a little closer to me
So close that I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannonball

Still a little bit of your song in my ear
Still a little bit of your words I long to hear
You step a little closer each day
So close that I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannon

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to cry
So come on courage!
Teach me to be shy
'Cause it's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna scare her
It's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna lose
It's not hard to grow
When you know that you just don't know

    This song is fantastic, i love it! I think this song is about a breakup that has happened and about the person missing someone special but he is saying goodbye? But he won't forget her x

    Wanting to get it right but being scared of cocking up again. Think you've learnt from your mistakes but not wanting to mess things up because it could go so wrong again.

    I think its about falling in love with someone so hard... " its not hard to fall.. When u float like a cannon ball"
    And not understanding how its happening.. " .. I cant see whats goin on"
    And the love and attraction is growing between them... "u step a little closer each day"... And the rest is kinda around this idea..
