Background pt. 2

from In Your Eyes by Koa



I’m not supposed to feel this way, no
Supposed to stay straight and narrow
Supposed to be strong and brave,
But the world’s so big and scary

And I think it’s against me
Think it’s tryna test me
Find it so depressing, it’s so messy
But on the surface I just gotta stay clean, no

But when I’m with you I don’t care
Honey, let's go there
Show me all that we could be, if we were free

If I said I loved you and blew my cover
I’d lose it all
So I just hide it, hide it in the background

Do my best to hold it under
Don’t wanna blow the world asunder
Keep it underneath my skin
But I’m bursting when you’re near me

And oh, I wanna tell you
But I don’t wanna scare you
And if you don’t believe me, if you leave me…
I don’t know what I’d do

When I’m with you I can’t
Hold back how I feel
Why should I hide from you...?

When I’m with you I don’t care
Honey, let’s go there
Show me all that we could be, if we were free

I’m done hiding from the truth, hiding it from you
I'm breaking my walls down
Coming out of the background
