Verse 1

Could it be it's not just you who's not head over heels?

I'm constantly comparing my past relationship to how this one feels.

And I'm sorry, but it's all a little too pale.

In my head, I'm hearing warning bells.

Pre-Chorus

I keep my distance,

Respect your boundaries,

Never boss your around.

I'm still guarded,

My walls are still up,

You couldn't knock them down.

Chorus

I hesitate a thousand times before I ask you for anything.

What is that silent screaming that I'm hearing?

Could it be

When I'm with you, I'll never feel free?

Could it be

When I'm with you, I'll never be me?

Verse 2

I remember how I used to boss him around, "Don't drink coffee,

Call your mom today, when you reach home don't forget to text me."

I don't think I ever ordered you.

Could it be that my fears are true?

Pre-Chorus

I keep my distance,

Respect your boundaries,

Never boss your around.

I'm still guarded,

My walls are still up,

You couldn't knock them down.

Chorus

I hesitate a thousand times before I ask you for anything.

What is that silent screaming that I'm hearing?

Could it be

When I'm with you, I'll never feel free?

Could it be

When I'm with you, I'll never be me?

Bridge

Watching my words constantly,

Knowing you'd say no to my demands.

Suddenly I'm missing his sarcastic "yes dear."

How was I so unguarded with him? I don't understand.

Chorus

And I hesitate a thousand times before I ask you for anything.

What is that silent screaming that I'm hearing?

Could it be

When I'm with you, I'll never feel free?

Could it be

When I'm with you, I'll never be me?
