I’m holding onto my breath
I’ve been biting on my tongue
I can’t stop the pounding in my chest
I wish I knew what was wrong
Why do I feel so scared?
I know it’s because of you
How can this be fair?
Why don’t I know what to do?
Did you close your lips for a reason?
Is that why you’re not speaking?
I’d give anything just to tease them
I wish I knew what you’re thinking
