lyrics

I am so sorry that I am so dumb
To think that you loved me to think I was wrong
And I would have given you everything
I would have given you everything

So hold down my legs
Won’t you please hold down my arms?
And don’t let me go out of this room
Don’t let me go

I am so sorry that I made you wait
It was my stupidest doing of late
And please when you hug me oh please fill this space
Please when you hug me please fill this space

And hold down my legs
Won’t you please hold down my arms?
And don’t let me go out of this room
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go

You’re holding me down and you’re holding me down and you’re holding me down!
You’re holding me down and you’re holding me down and you’re holding me down!
You’re holding me down and you’re holding me down and you’re holding me down!
You’re holding me down and you’re holding me down and you’re holding me down!

Little by little these feelings will go
And I will be outward again and you’ll know
That I am so tiny in the scheme of things
And if there’s no impact to your feelings then…

Hold down my legs
Won’t you please hold down my arms?
And don’t let me go out of this room
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
