Give Out

Album: The Tramp (2012)
  • There were your eyes in the dark of the room
    The only ones shining
    The only set I had met in years
    It's not because I always look down
    It might be I always look out
    It might be I always look out

    I am biting my lip
    As confidence is speaking to me
    I loosen my grip from my palm
    Put it on your knee
    In my way
    I say
    You're the reason why I'll move to the city or
    Why I'll need to leave
    You're the reason why I'll move to the city or
    Why I'll need to leave

    There was your breath on the back of my neck
    The only one holding
    The only one I had felt in years
    It's not because I always hold on
    It might be I always hold out
    It might be I always hold out
    I am biting my lip
    As confidence is speaking to me
    I loosen my grip from my palm
    Put it on your knee
    In my way
    I say
    You're the reason why I'll move to the city or
    Why I'll need to leave
    You're the reason why I'll move to the city or
    Why I'll need to leave

    So what's with the eyes in the back of the room?
    The only ones trying
    The only ones I have let in years
    It's not because I always give up
    It might be I always give out
    It might be I always give out
    It might be I always give out
    It might be I always give out Writer/s: Aaron Brooking Dessner, Sharon Katharine Van Etten
