Just for Now

Album: Underworld (2018)
  • My heart beats loud enough to deafen me
    And you keep coming to me in my dreams
    And lights flash, I beg that you'll appear
    In flesh and tell me everything I want to hear
    And then again

    If the pain is endless
    How can I live, how can I live
    When the weight is relentless
    To be with you now
    Feels like the only way out

    Maybe you can make it better
    I don't need forever
    Just find me somehow
    And if you're unsure
    'Cause we've been here before
    I don't want more than for
    You to talk me down
    And love me just for now
    Love me just for now

    My mind plays with you like you're its favorite game
    And I shake addicted to the drug I crave
    And I'm trapped carrying this burden on my back
    But I won't let you fall even if my body cracks
    Even if my body cracks
    I don't need my body

    If the pain is endless
    How can I live, how can I live
    When the weight is relentless
    To be with you now
    Feels like the only way out

    Maybe you can make it better
    I don't need forever
    Just find me somehow
    And if you're unsure
    'Cause we've been here before
    I don't want more than for
    You to talk me down
    And love me just for now
    Love me just for now

    I can't erase what we had
    So please understand
    It's not how I want this to be
    Yet I'm chained to the past
    And I'm sinking fast
    Not how I wanted you to see me

    If the pain is endless
    How can I live, how can I live
    When the weight is relentless
    To be with you now
    Feels like the only way out

    Maybe you can make it better
    I don't need forever
    Just find me somehow
    And if you're unsure
    'Cause we've been here before
    I don't want more than for
    You to talk me down
    And love me just for now
    Love me just for now
