I met a new one and she looks just like you
She gives me everything that you didn't want to
And maybe I don't need saving after all
She sticks in my ribs almost better than you did
And maybe I'm tired or maybe she glows

I wonder if you're still defending
I wonder if you're still defending

I can fall alone if all
If I can fall away
You've been so wrong for so long now
I can fall alone if all
If I can fall away

Met someone with your eyes and your skin
I can convince her of anything
And baby, it's so delicious you should
Come here and see for yourself
"I'm gone", you said, "if this is all there is...
You'll never shine alone

And I wonder if you're still defending
And I wonder if you're still defending

I can fall alone if all
If I can fall away
You've been so wrong
For so long now
I can fall alone if all
If I can fall away

And your new anthems that you breathe
And I've got you on my answering machine

Coz I've kissed others lips
And they promised to heal me
It's easy if you try, just try

And I wonder if you're still defending
I wonder love, I wonder...

I can fall alone if all
If I can fall away
I can fall alone if all
If I can fall away
You've been so wrong
For so long now
I can fall alone if all
If I can fall away
You've been so wrong
For so long now
I can fall alone if all
If I can fall away

And your new anthems that you breathe
And I've got you on my answering machine

And I've got you on my answering machine

(I can fall alone if all
If I can fall away)
