HAIM – The Wire lyrics
You know I'm bad at communication, it's hardest thing for me to do
And it's said it's the most important part that relationships go through
And I gave it all away just so I could say that
Well, I know, I know, I know, I know that you're gonna be okay anyway

You know there's no rhyme or reason for the way you turned out to be
I didn't go and try to change my mind - not intentionally
I know it's hard to hear me say it, but I can't bear to stay and
I just know, I know, I know, I know that you're gonna be okay anyway

Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire
Oh, but I just couldn't take it, I tried harder not to fake it
But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
It felt right
It felt right
Oh, but I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
It felt right
It felt right
Oh, but I fumbled and when I came down to the wire

Use your imagination, try make you what you wanted to be
Because I'm sorry I did what I did, but it came naturally
And I gave it all away just so I could say that
Well I know, I know, I know, I know that you're gonna be okay anyway

Well I tried to keep myself together after all the opportunities
Of trying to stay true to you and try to do what you wanted from me
And I gave it all away just to hear you say that
Well I know, I know, I know, I know that you're gonna be okay anyway
Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire
Oh, but I just couldn't take it, I tried harder not to fake it
Oh, but I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
It felt right
It felt right
Oh, but I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
It felt right
It felt right
Oh, but I fumbled and when I came down to the wire

Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire
Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire

Oh, but I just couldn't take it, I tried harder not to fake it
But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
But I just couldn't take it, I tried harder not to fake it
But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire

It felt right
It felt right
Oh, but I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
It felt right
It felt right
Oh, but I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
It felt right
It felt right
Oh, but I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
Yeah, yeah, yeah
It felt right
Oh, but I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
It felt right (it felt right)
It felt right (it felt right)
It felt right
But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
Yeah
