Come Up Short lyrics

Not long ago you saw your picture in my wallet
I fumbled the bills to keep it hidden
You said stop a while
I wanna run but don't know how you keep on worrying
I'm in your back pocket, take me out when you get curious
I don't wanna start again

Why do we always come up short
When you fold my world up?
I barely can breathe, still trapped in the creeps
You're wearing out the metaphor
So many words, just say what you mean
Just say it to me

Go up and talk, why won't your lips move an inch?
And what's a line without a crack to let it in
I will be damned if you want something I'm done missing
I don't never fall again

You're worth the fight, we're losing light with every move I make
Just wasting time deciding where we both can pass the lane
Well it all still feels so strange
So figure it out but you know you can make me wait you know
And I'm too afraid I won't have something to fall back upon
When everything else goes wrong

Why do we always come up short
When you fold my world up?
I barely can breathe, still trapped in the creeps
You're wearing out the metaphor
So many words, just say what you mean
Just say it to me

I work too hard to think that you won't exist but
It doesn't take much to make me feel like I was still but
I will be damned if you want something I'm done missing
I don't never fall again

Go up and talk, why won't your lips move an inch?
Was I such a fool to write your letter on my wrist and
I will be damned if you want something I'm done missing
I don't never fall again
