Downfall

It’s so hard to keep you at arm’s length
When I’ve been holding out so long

Your number’s lighting up my cellphone
And I’m so tired of being strong

So yes, I’ll be your downfall
I’m already your youthful regret

You said that you still love me
I’m the girl you couldn’t forget

Now the cards are on the table
I’m done debating right or wrong

I know you’re willing and able
You’re pull on me has never gone

My pride doesn’t keep me warm
And neither does my integrity

I cannot bear another night alone
Leave your ring where I keep my key
