Verse 1

It's hard to say what I feel when I look at you

I see a boy who finds it hard to say what he feels

So when I look at you

I ask you what you want from me

Then you try to hold me

You try to show me

But you don't understand yourself

Anymore

Chorus

It's hard to breathe

When you can't see

What it is you're meant to do

Anymore

It's hard to breathe

When you stand this close to me

But don't touch

You're too scared to care too much

It's hard to breathe

Verse 2

What do you see when you look at me?

I worry it's not enough for you

What do you feel when you see me?

Is it what I feel?

I ask you what you want from me

You try to hold me

But you don't understand yourself

Anymore

Chorus

It's hard to breathe

When you can't see

What it is you're meant to do

Anymore

It's hard to breathe

When you stand this close to me

But don't touch

You're too scared to care too much

Bridge

It's getting harder to be around

This small town

I wanna get away

From all of my past mistakes

I didn't take the chances

I wanted to with you

We were too scared to care

Too scared

Chorus

It's hard to breathe

When you can't see

What is it you're meant to do

Anymore

It's hard to breathe

When you stand this close to me

But don't touch

We're too scared to care too much

Chorus 2

It's hard to breathe

When I can't see

What it is I'm meant to do

Without you

It's hard to breathe

When you stand this close me

But don't touch

We're too scared to care too much

We're too scared to care too much

I'm too scared

You're too scared

We're too scared to care too much

But it's too late for that

Oh, it's too late for that

It's hard to breathe

When you stand this close to me

But don't touch

I'm too scared to care too much
