Ari Hest – Big Ben lyrics

Don't you get too close
Make a mental note
That something's gonna give
If you wait this time out

A penny strikes the well
And sinks down to the bottom
With so much weight to bear
It's a quick fix so don't you dare back down

Someone please explain
How days so plain
Became so fickle and dangerous
Have gathered an unsettling dust
Have beaten up the both of us
Think Big Ben, Big Ben

Don't go down that easy

A knock at your front door
You answer from the bed
Nobody comes in
Nobody goes out
Mistakes you can't take back
The unforgiven move
If this can't be erased
You're left wondering about what might have been


She wants to know the truth
You want to hurt her less
And one day this will pass
And neither of you will even care
