Today I'm going to keep a little something for me Today I'm going to keep a little something for me A healthy distance, resist the urge to say everything at once. It's not personal, it's survival. Cause love keeps leaving my body and I don't know where How much love can leave my body til, oh, there's nothing there Today I'm going to keep a little something for me Today I'm going to keep a little something for me Curb the habit, monitor the need for another's heat It's not personal, it's survival. Cause love keeps leaving my body and I don't know where How much love can leave my body til, oh, there's nothing there I've got to hide my heart away, til it learns I've got to hide my heart away, til it discerns.

If you want me I am here I am holding my ground I am not 20 anymore But if you call I'll answer If only to say I can do better I build an immunity Everytime you push me Train myself not to jump Keep the ratio one for one Cause I am not 20 anymore But if you call I'll answer If only to say I can do better Or maybe I can't (I'm not 20 anymore) This is as good as it gets (I'm not 20 anymore) So if you call I'll answer

I don't want to be good I don't care about what I value I want you I don't care about love I don't care about the future I want you Hearts are breaking Ships are sinking But no matter what I tell my heart is true I want you I'd burn my house Let the fire in my body out I want you I'd surrender joy Let my whole world turn to blue Til I have you Hearts are breaking Ships are sinking But no matter what I tell my heart is true I want you I've clearly lost my mind But I don't want it back I want you ***

I might be old fashioned But it's gotta be It's nothing, if it's isn't Something - I might be old fashioned But it's got to feel It's nothing, if it isn't Something grand I am looking for A Grand Gesture to give you I am looking for the right moves to win you over I might be barking up the wrong tree But it's feeling like your feeling Me And in our crystal ball there might not be A future, but A Grand Gesture will ensure a memory I am looking for A Grand Gesture to give you I am looking for the right moves to win you over It will make up for the trips we never take It will make up for the words we don't say It will make up for the trips we never take It will make up for the promises that we break.

So what if you see the Worst Of Me? I'm not the robot I aspire to be So what if you see the Worst Of Me? I've lost you already - It's not a weakness to think of you How can I resist when I miss you It's not a weakness to think of you It's the action that follows, the calling when you say please don't If I really loved you I'd set you free My love is superseded by my need So what if you see the Worst Of Me? I've lost you already - It's not a weakness to think of you How can I resist when you're the best It's not a weakness to think of you It's the action that follows, the staying when you say please go My friends tell me this emotion is human It's not a weakness to think of you How can I resist when I miss you It's not a weakness to think of you It's the action that follows, the holding on when you say let go Baby meet the Worst Of Me.

Maybe I'm gonna be alright Maybe I don't need to try so hard And all those seconds, second guessing, is a waste of time When all I have to do all I have to do is let love in What's wrong with me? Nothing. My heart just wants to want Cause no keeps it going and charged And all those choices, chasing crushes, is a way to hide When all I have to do all I have to do is let love in What's wrong with me? Nothing. Sometimes it doesn't feel like how I want it to So I invent a crisis and make my fears true But when I stop fighting, I see what's in front of me All I have to do all I have to do is let love in What's wrong with me? Nothing.
