You're so easy to love
It's not like I can help it
And things get pretty rough
But it's not like I want to avoid it
And I, I make it easy on you
And I don't say what I mean
In case you get to wondering if I'm really OK

'Cause I know that the messages reach you
And I know that the truth gets through
And I lied when I told you I wasn't in love
But darling you lied to me too

And I'm holding so much
Feeling like I can't take it
And it burns to the touch
But I don't want to overstate it
And I, I got no emergency brake
And no way to water this down
So there, it is what it is and you can make up your mind

'Cause I know that the messages reach you
And I know that the truth gets through
And I lied when I told you I wasn't in love
But darling you lied to me too

Feel the weight, feel it
Take the strain, take it
'Cause I don't wanna wait to say this
It's been my whole life in the making

And life takes its course
But I never saw this coming
We go back to the source
But I'm still in search of the one thing
And you, you say that I'm reaching for you
And I don't understand why
But what if I already knew all I needed to know

'cause I know that the messages reach you
And I know that the truth gets through
And I lied when I told you I wasn't in love
But darling you lied to me too
