lyrics

Maybe I’m not that strong
Maybe I want you, too

Have I given far too much away?
On the verge of a complete collapse
I let the rashness of the wine betray
What I’d tried to keep so quietly under wraps

Maybe I’m not that strong
Maybe I want you, too
Pushed it away so long
But now that it’s showing through

Maybe I’m not that strong
One of us has to be
‘Cause there’s no turning ‘round
And no kind of guarantee

So, the veil is gone, it’s plain to see
Every urge at which you might take aim
Wired to want what we know could never be
It’s tempting: a child reaching for flame

Maybe I’m not that strong
Maybe I want you, too
Pushed it away so long
But now that it’s showing through

Maybe I’m not that strong
One of us has to be
‘Cause there’s no turning ‘round
And no kind of guarantee

Tension without resolution
Impulses coexist
With strains of vigilance:
It’s almost easy to resist

One more glass, another furtive glance
One more turn into an empty street
Alternate avenues of choice and chance
And alleyways from which there’s no retreat

Maybe I’m not that strong
Maybe I want you, too
Pushed it away so long
But now that it’s showing through

Maybe I’m not that strong
One of us has to be
‘Cause there’s no turning ‘round
And no kind of guarantee
