Verse 1

Some days are harder than others,

Sometimes I ask myself, "why bother?"

Some days you make me wanna scream,

You oscillate between being a nightmare and a dream.

Verse 2

I can never look away from you.

I need to have a second glance, I do.

And it's sad how you never notice me.

It's like you keep screaming that we're not meant to be.

Chorus

But no matter how low you have me feeling,

No matter how many times you make me look like a clown,

Every time my feet drag me to the edge of the balcony,

My brain starts screaming, "Whoa! That's a long way down!"

Verse 3

No, I'm never gonna let myself fall.

Long way down, short way to end it all.

But you know what? You're not worth it.

I wanna live with you, not die for you, I haven't lost my wits.

Verse 4

Yes, sometimes my reasoning fails.

I can't picture a future with anyone else.

But I'm a big girl, I can live my life all alone.

No need to throw myself from the balcony, I'm not some stone.

Chorus

And no matter how low you have me feeling,

No matter how many times you make me look like a clown,

Every time my feet drag me to the edge of the balcony,

My brain starts screaming, "Whoa! That's a long way down!"

Chorus

I was on cloud nine when you were holding my hand.

It's still a long way down from where I now stand.

When I open my eyes to reality, I see there's no ground under my feet.

So I'll hide away in dreams of you, but I won't die, you're not worth it.

Chorus

And no matter how low you have me feeling,

No matter how many times you make me look like a clown,

Every time my feet drag me to the edge of the balcony,

My brain starts screaming, "Whoa! That's a long way down!"
