You keep it simple at the start
And never question things too hard
Shouldn’t shock you when you’re down this far

I’m not asking for a fix
I just need you close to reach
When I can’t stop myself at all
When I can’t lean on you I fall
Every single time I’m wrong
Every selfish trip I’m on
If I can’t lean on you I fall

When I think I’m so messed up
And when you think you’re so messed up
Gotta keep in mind that we’re just us

I’m not asking for a fix
I just need you close to reach
When I can’t stop myself at all
When I can’t lean on you I fall
Every single time I’m wrong
Every selfish trip I’m on
If I don’t lean on you
If I don’t lean on you I fall

If I can’t lean on you I fall

I’m hoping for the perfect day
When I look into the right face
And really mean it, saying “I’m okay”

I’m not asking for a fix
I just need you close to reach
When I can’t stop myself at all
When I can’t lean on you I fall
Every single time I’m wrong
Every selfish trip I’m on
If I don’t lean on you
If I don’t lean on you I fall
