Being close to you is like holding fire in my hand
Each second burns so much it's hard to stand
Always leaving marks and scars behind
Now the will only go away with time

Remaining away from you is like holding ice in my fist
It freezes and aches I can't take much more of this
Cold and shaking I can't stand any more
Eventually I can get near you and be warm

Thinking of you is like drowning in deep waters
And I can't breathe or think because nothing else matters
Constantly it's a struggle to catch my breath
Only I know it won't happen just yet
