lyrics

It's like threading a needle where the eye's too small
Searching for better light you're whole life through
It's like building a fire just to watch it die
Watch it go out and just leave you in smoke
The thing I'd never do to you
Is make you feel that you should've done better
I am swimming in the ocean I see you waving
I can't give up my hard to take yours
I'm treading water, I'm getting tired
Me, I'm so tired just let me lay here
Come lay beside me please don't say anything
When I stop trying you say it's alright
I know you're lying and i know why
I know you love me I don't know why
I know you love me I know why

did background vocals. It's called Tourist.
