lyrics

you wrap your arms around me
while you stay just out of reach
you keep it hidden
just so you can watch me seek

my dizzy hands could never hold your crooked smile
still, my fingers bear your teethmarks—the scars of my denial
you set the rules but you won’t say what they are
how could i ever hope to win?

it’s the agony of almost
it’s the longing for what’s near
it’s knowing that no matter how close you are
you’re not here

your body tells your secrets
your silence tells your lies
you make me ask the question
then you offer no reply

you laid the trap but now both of us are caught
you don’t know how it started, you don’t know how to stop
your castle’s crumbling, hercules can’t keep you safe
what are you going to do now?

it’s the agony of almost
it’s the longing for what’s near
it’s knowing that no matter how close you are
you’re not here

your castle’s crumbling
hercules can’t keep you safe
what are you going to do now?
