(Susanna Hoffs / Andrew Brassell)
Take a minute, a minute to breathe
Oh I'm trying to see what you see
You're always running in place
Looking down
Heavy thoughts can always recede
But you're stuck inside reprise
And the truth is right there, but you're looking past
Think it isn't fair but don't think so fast
Come to me
I know we're losing time
Let me take the weight from your mind
Come to me
I know you're bruised
And it's harder all the time to do your best
I keep holding my breath
I'm trying to be what you need
You only hear your own voice
Caught in the sound

Open up to me and we'll turn it around
Come to me
I know you're bruised
And it's harder all the time to do your best
I keep holding my breath
Come to me
I know we're losing time
Let me take the weight from your mind
You always say it's raining
Don't let it chill you to the bone
And if it's cold out there
Come on inside and make my house your home
Come to me
I know we're losing time
Let me take the weight from your mind
Come to me
I know you're bruised
And it's harder all the time to do your best
I keep holding my breath
I keep holding my breath
I keep holding my breath
