It's not a silly little moment.               It's not the storm before the calm.

This is the deep and dying breath.           This love that we've been workin' on.

Can't seem to hold you like I want to.            But I can feel you in my arms.

Nobodies gonna come and save us.     We've pulled too many false alarms.
