lyrics

When we were out tonight, couldn’t understand the things you’d say
My head’s a little light, so I guess it doesn’t matter anyway
And I’m trying to not try I’ll keep my assumptions at bay
Cause we know what happened last time, but this is this time

When we were out tonight I couldn’t understand the things you’d do
You’d hold my hand so tight as long as we were hidden, out of view
And I’m trying to not wonder why or try to guess your next move
Cause this is this time, but we know what happened last time with me and you

So if we’re only playing pretend
Please just keep me at arms length

And I’ve had sleepless nights, I’ve been speechless and that says so much
I wear my shroud of spite, keeping secrets like I miss your touch
And I’ve wanted to say there’s a moment each day when you’re on my mind
Cause I didn’t say it last time but this is this time

But if we’re only playing pretend
Oh please, just keep me at arms’ length
If we’re only playing pretend
Oh please just keep me at arms’ length

And I’ll drive you home tonight just so that I can have a bit more time
Although it’s clear to see, you and me is like the blind leading the blind
My map burnt to ashes your compass points straight to the sky
But what they did to us last time won’t happen this time
Yeah we could say for the last time we’ll make it this time

But if we’re only playing pretend
Please just keep me at arms’ length
If we’re only playing pretend
Oh please just keep me at arms’ length
