Verse 1

It's so easy to take words out of context and twist them into lies.

The world scares me, it's already slapped me with too many goodbyes.

I'm not even close to perfect, but if there's one thing I'm good at,

It's messing up, and if I mess up now, would you forgive me for that?

Chorus

The world scares me

With how nobody

Can ever really tolerate others' happiness.

Just one chance,

And at once,

There they are, trying to make a huge mess.

Wish it was just you and me,

Wish the world wasn't interfering,

Wish we didn't have to deal with these little messes,

Now wouldn't that be amazing?

Verse 2

You trust me so much, now I'm afraid I'll do something to lose it.

What if you never talk to me again? We act like strangers on the street?

I'm walking carefully, trying not to make mistakes, but I'm so scared.

A silly girl like me, what if I open my eyes one day and see you're not there?

Chorus

The world scares me

With how nobody

Can ever really tolerate others' happiness.

Just one chance,

And at once,

There they are, trying to make a huge mess.

Wish it was just you and me,

Wish the world wasn't interfering,

Wish we didn't have to deal with these little messes,

Now wouldn't that be amazing?

Bridge

And I hope you know

That sometimes you have to tuck your ego

Into your pocket and find forgiveness in your heart.

And I hope you know

That I'm learning to be less impulsive just so

I don't ever sputter words that would tear us apart.

Chorus

The world scares me

With how nobody

Can ever really tolerate others' happiness.

Just one chance,

And at once,

There they are, trying to make a huge mess.

Wish it was just you and me,

Wish the world wasn't interfering,

Wish we didn't have to deal with these little messes,

Now wouldn't that be amazing?
