(Kristyn Osborn / Melanie Doane / Rick Neigher)

If you could hear these four walls talkin'
If you could hear my heart just walkin'
'Round and 'round this dollhouse trying
To make it real

If you could see this sunrise setting
The disconnection I'm regretting
Now and then was then but now is
How I feel
My handwritten fears and drops of rage
(Trying to dry these drops of rage)
Require a steady hand to turn the page

CHORUS It was easy falling in love
It was beautiful on the way up
But I need a man going down
I need a man going down
You were a dreamer you were a kid
And flying too high is what we did
Now I need a man going down
Can you be my man going down down down

Where's the shiver where's the shameless craving
We used to have but now I'm waiting
Here for you to come to me
And show me know me

Hovering above this quaking ground
(Don't wanna break this quaking ground)
I found the purest words that I've ever found
(Believe me, believe me)

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE Tell me that you'll love me still
Tell me when I won't you will
Be a gentle covering when the rain turns to rust
Tell me you'll be twice as strong when I feel I don't belong
And take me take me home
