Tonight I am fighting for love again
My heart in your hand is my heart on the floor
And I know that you think that we can still be just friends
But if I can be honest, for a moment
I know that we're breaking
But if you can just take it

We're so, so close
We're staring at it
We're staring at it
We're staring at it
Please don't go
We'll get it back
Just let it pass
We can make it happen
I don't where you're at, but when you see an exit,
You'll be headed at it
I won't go
I'm staring at it
I'm staring at the only love I know

Search for a war and you won't find peace
But I think that you think that they're one in the same
Love can't be open if past cannot be erased
So if I can't be honest, for a moment
I know that we're breaking
But if you can just take it

We're so, so close
We're staring at it
We're staring at it
We're staring at it
Please don't go
We'll get it back
Just let it pass
We can make it happen
I don't where you're at, but when you see an exit,
You'll be headed at it
I won't go
I'm staring at it
I'm staring at the only love I know

I can't believe this
Oh no, you're actually leavin
I think that somewhere I'm bleeding
It's so close, so close, we are

We are

Please don't go
We'll get it back
Just let it pass
We can make it happen
I don't where you're at, but when you see an exit,
You'll be headed at it
I won't go
I'm staring at it
I'm staring at the only love

We're so, so close
We're staring at it
We're staring at it
We're staring at it
Please don't go
We'll get it back
Just let it pass
We can make it happen
I don't where you're at, but when you see an exit,
You'll be headed at it
I won't go
I'm staring at it
I'm staring at the only love I know

The only love I know
The only love I know
Yeah
Yeah
I'm staring at it
I'm staring at
Staring at the only love I know

    I feel like it's describing a situation where things may not be perfect, or maybe it doesn't seem like things are gonna work, but if you try just a little bit harder and put effort into it, things will be ok. Like when you're so close to making things better, don't give up even if it seems impossible.
