Elastic Heart

So cold tonight
You're on my mind
Just hoping for
An escape to find

It started strong
Too much I'm sure
Were you too scared?
Was I too pure?

I... can't believe how I'm nothing to you
It should've all made sense
Oh... this elastic heart is bound to snap
'Cause none of this makes sense

A sign or two
That makes me feel
Like all my thoughts
Just might be real

You may not care
You may not dwell
But that can't change
How hard I fell

I... can't believe how I'm nothing to you
It should've all made sense
Oh... this elastic heart is bound to snap
'Cause none of this makes sense

Say what you want, do what you must
I just don't know what I can trust
Please don't put up a man-made wall
If it is right, let yourself fall

If you remained
A mystery
My head would be clear
And my heart could breathe

Instead you're here
Perplexing me
And while flowers bloom
My heart retreats

I... can't believe how I'm nothing to you
It should've all made sense
Oh... this elastic heart is bound to snap
'Cause none of this makes sense
