lyrics

Keep sending the muscle to knock at my door
I’ll hide behind sofas and crawl on the floor
If I just hold my breath still and try not to move
I might just make it through

If I stay out all night then you’re not gone
If I start a fight then I’m not wrong
If I try to hide than I’m not lying
If I try to not to cry then I’m not dying
It must be hard to be so tough
There is no muscle strong enough
There is no muscle strong as love
And it’ll break your heart.

I weep from my muscles and I leave a trail
Of apologies behind me every time I fail
If I just hold you closer and try not to bail
It might just be okay.

If I stay out all night then you’re not gone
If I start a fight then I’m not wrong
If I try to hide than I’m not lying
If I try to not to cry then I’m not dying
It must be hard to be so tough
There is no muscle strong enough
There is no muscle strong as love
And it’ll break your heart and shatter it like glass
Without the muscle you can't stand impact
No body was ever built to last
You're gone so fast
Your heart'll shatter just like glass
Without the muscle you can't stand impact
No body was ever built to last
You're gone so fast.

If I stay out all night then you’re not gone
If I start a fight then I’m not wrong
If I try to hide than I’m not lying
If I try to not to cry then I’m not dying
It must be hard to be so tough
There is no muscle strong enough
There is no muscle strong as love
And it’ll break your heart.
