lyrics

I'm leaving this letter in the pocket of your coat
With a list of all the reasons why I felt the need to go and
Like a moth to a flame I was drawn to your light
Let myself get much too close, didn't realize
Til I'd gone half blind

I'll admit some days I still go back there
Let the floor crumble beneath my feet
Dig up remains beneath the floorboards
Of who we used to be

But oh, it ain't no use putting up a fight
We"re spending far too much time
Chasing shadows from the light
So just roll with the punches,
Stay steady on your feet
Or spend the rest of this natural born life
Shadowboxing

If I pull the shirt from my back I'll rip the skin off too
Expose the flesh beneath the surface
And I don't wanna overwhelm you
I'd swallow this bitter pill, God knows
It's not enough to numb me
or to keep me from the recoil

And you told me you would ruin me
Honey, that's just what you did
Built me up in this collective mess
I anticipate the impact once again

But oh, it ain't no use putting up a fight
We're wasting far too much time
Chasing shadows from the light
So just roll with the punches,
Stay steady on your feet
Or spend the rest of this natural born life
Shadowboxing
