The Little Things That Give You Away Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The night gave you song
A light had been turned on
You walked out in the world
Like you belong there
Verse 2
As easy as a breeze
Each heart was yours to please
Is it only me who sees
There's something wrong there
Verse 3
Oh la la, I'm not a ghost now
I can see you
You need to see me
Verse 4
It's the little things that give you away
The words you cannot say
Your big mouth in the way
Verse 5
I saw you on the stairs
You didn't notice I was there
That's 'cause you were talking at me and Not to me
Verse 6
You were high above the storm
A hurricane being born
This freedom it might cost you your liberty
Verse 7
It's the little things that give you away
The words you cannot say
Your big mouth in the way
It's the little things that tease and betray
As the hunted I become the prey
It's the little things
The little things that give you away
Verse 8
Sometimes I can't believe my existence
See myself from a distance
I can't get back inside
Verse 9
Sometimes the air is so anxious
All my thoughts are so reckless
And all of my innocence has died
Verse 10
Sometimes I wake at four in the morning
When all the darkness is swarming
And it covers me in fear
Verse 11
Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes
Sometimes I'm full of anger and grieving
So far away from believing
That any song will reappear
Verse 12
Sometimes the end is not coming
It's not coming
The end is here
Sometimes
Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes
Sometimes when the painted glass shatters
And you're the only thing that matters
But I can't see you through the tears
Sometimes the end is not coming
It's not coming
The end is here
Sometimes
