I know that this is simple
but that doesn't mean it isn't hard
you know that you're the reason
that I can't sleep at night

I take so much for granted
but that doesn't mean that I don't care
Don't mistake my reticence for a lack of feeling

If i'm blind to the signs
or seem to pay no mind
it's because I'm afraid to lose what I don't have

I just needed you to know
because my window is fading fast
I'm afraid I've done more harm than good my dear

They've got the crash cart on standby
and they won't let me out of sight
but I'm not sure I want to make it through the night
and I don't want you affection
if it's just a sympathetic mime
from what i gather it'd only be a shadow
of what you meant

Maybe I'll see you at the bottom
your smile's the only thing that gets me through these anemic days
Maybe I'll see you at the bottom
I promise to keep the light on til you're home
