Track Name: Hands Tied
These days, I'm always inventing new ways to let you down.
Every step that I take is unstable and feels like I'm running away with my hands tied.
Track Name: Clumsy
The day I fell for you, I fell hard.
Straight down the icy steps and into the front yard.
I almost broke my back trying to stay on my feet.
Almost went alone, but you held onto me.
Isn't it so?
Every time I fall down, you follow.

Clumsy's a perfect word to describe you and I.
Accident Prone, I don't know how we ever survived
or why your Dad never shoveled the fucking porch.
I don't think he liked me very much.

Isn't it so?
Every time I fall down, you follow.
Isn't it so?
Every time I think we should touch, you think I should go.
