  • You know I'm bad at communication, it's the hardest thing for me to do
    And it's said, it's the most important part that relationships will go through
    And I'd give it all away just so I could say that
    I know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anyway

    You know there's no rhyme or reason for the way you turned out to be
    I didn't go and try to change my mind. not intentionally
    I know it's hard to hear me say it but I can't bear to stay and
    I just know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anyway

    Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire, oh
    But I just couldn't take it, I tried hard not to fake it
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
    It felt great, it felt right, oh
    But I fumbled him when I came down to the wire
    It felt great, it felt right, oh
    But I fumbled him when I came down to the wire

    Does your imagination try to make you what you wanted to be
    Because I'm sorry I do what I did, but it came naturally
    And I gave it all away just so I could say that
    Well I know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anyway

    Well I try to keep myself together, after all the opportunities
    I try to stay true to you and try to do what you wanted for me
    And I'd give it all away just to hear you say that
    Well I know I know I know I know that you're gonna be okay anyway

    Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire, oh
    But I just couldn't take it, I tried hard not to fake it
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
    It felt great, it felt right, oh
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
    It felt great, it felt right, oh
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
    Ooh yeah

    Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire
    Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire, oh
    But I just couldn't take it, I tried hard not to fake it
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
    But I just couldn't take it, I tried hard not to fake it
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
    It felt great, it felt right, oh
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
    It felt great, it felt right, oh
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
    It felt great, it felt right, oh
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
    It felt right, oh
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
    Ooh yeah yeah yeah yeah
    No no no no
    It felt right
    It felt right
    It felt right
    No no no no
    But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire Writer/s: Alana Mychal Haim, Danielle Sari Haim, Este Arielle Haim
