Why Don't We – 8 Letters lyrics

[Verse 1: Jonah Marais]
You know me the best
You know my worst, see me hurt, but you don't judge
That, right there, is the scariest feeling
Opening and closing up again
I've been hurt so I don't trust
Now here we are, staring at the ceiling

[Pre-Chorus: Zach Herron]
I've said those words before but it was a lie
And you deserve to hear them a thousand times

[Chorus: Jack Avery & Corbyn Besson]
If all it is is eight letters
Why is it so hard to say?
If all it is is eight letters
Why am I in my own way?
Why do I pull you close
And then ask you for space
If all it is is eight letters
Why is it so hard to say?

[Verse 2: Daniel Seavey]
Isn't it amazing how almost every line on our hands align
When your hand's in mine
It's like I'm whole again, isn't that a sign
I should speak my mind

[Pre-Chorus: Zach Herron]
I've said those words before but it was a lie
And you deserve to hear them a thousand times

[Chorus: Jack Avery & Corbyn Besson]
If all it is is eight letters
Why is it so hard to say?
If all it is is eight letters
Why am I in my own way?
Why do I pull you close
And then ask you for space?
If all it is is eight letters
Why is it so hard to say? (woah, oh yeah)

[Bridge: Jack Avery]
When I close my eyes
It's you there in my mind
When I close my eyes

[Chorus: Corbyn Besson & Jack Avery]
If all it is is eight letters
Why is it so hard to say?
If all it is is eight letters
Why am I in my own way?
Why do I pull you close
And then ask you for space
If all it is is eight letters
Why is it so hard to say?

[Outro: Corbyn Besson & Jack Avery & Daniel Seavey]
If all it is is eight letters
When I close my eyes
It's you there in my mind (It's only you)
When I close my eyes
If all it is is eight letters
When I close my eyes
It's you there in my mind (you)
When I close my eyes
If all it is is eight letters
