CAREFUL
Brand New Eyes | 2009



I settled down
A twisted up frown
Disguised as a smile, well
You would've never known
I had it all
But not what I wanted
'Cause hope for me was a place uncharted
And overgrown

You'd make your way in
I'd resist you just like this
"You can't tell me to feel!"
The truth never set me free so I did it myself

You can't be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach out a little more
More, more, more, more

Open your eyes
Like I opened mine
It's only the real world
A life you will never know
Shifting your weight
To throw off the pain
Well, you can ignore it
But only for so long

You look like I did
You resist me just like this
"You can't tell me to heal!”
And it hurts remembering how it felt to shut down

You can't be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach out a little more
More, more, more, more

The truth never set me free
The truth never set me free
The truth never set me free so I'll do it myself

You can't be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach out

Can't be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach out more
More, more, more, more
