Verse 1

You've been hurt enough before.

I don't wanna hurt you anymore.

I'm trying not to push, trying not to rush.

I'm trying not to fight, trying not to make a fuss.

Pre Chorus

But I'm tired of watching what I'm gonna say.

Tired of being alarmed that I'll trip on the way.

Tired of being extra cautious every day.

That's not how you make a man stay.

Chorus

I feel like I'm walking on eggshells

While trying to balance a pitcher on my head.

I'm afraid.

One wrong step, one wrong word,

And all your feelings for me may just fade.

But it's said

That if it's meant to be, it will be.

That's why I'm giving up being so guarded.

From now on I'll just be me.

Verse 2

Perfection can last only so long.

I'll be real, that's how we'll grow strong.

I wanna be everything to you that she never was.

And that'll happen naturally, I'll stop trying because

Pre Chorus

I'm tired of watching what I'm gonna say.

Tired of being alarmed that I'll trip on the way.

Tired of being extra cautious every day.

That's not how you make a man stay.

Chorus

I feel like I'm walking on eggshells

While trying to balance a pitcher on my head.

I'm afraid.

One wrong step, one wrong word,

And all your feelings for me may just fade.

But it's said

That if it's meant to be, it will be.

That's why I'm giving up being so guarded.

From now on I'll just be me.

Bridge

Somehow I've grown confident about my place

In your heart.

Maybe it's because of that look in your eyes,

Or that fond smile.

Or maybe I trust destiny,

And I believe it won't tear us apart.

Pre Chorus

But I'm tired of watching what I'm gonna say.

Tired of being alarmed that I'll trip on the way.

Tired of being extra cautious every day.

That's not how you make a man stay.

Chorus

I feel like I'm walking on eggshells

While trying to balance a pitcher on my head.

I'm afraid.

One wrong step, one wrong word,

And all your feelings for me may just fade.

But it's said

That if it's meant to be, it will be.

That's why I'm giving up being so guarded.

From now on I'll just be me.
