lyrics

A spinning top
Will circle round until it stops
If you let it drop and no one sets it off again
Consider it the end

I’m wound up so tightly
Like good yarn and clenched teeth
I’m wound up so tightly
So don’t tie yourself to me

Adding up the conversations
I’ve unravelled constellations
Nebulously looped
In excuse after excuse

I’m wound up so tightly
Like good yarn and clenched teeth
I’m wound up so tightly
So don’t tie yourself to me

Is this skin
Enough to be wrapped up in
Is this skin
Enough to be wrapped up in

With fingers crossed and lungs unfolding
Body after body for the holding
But still I’m not beholden
Still I’m not beholden

I’m wound up so tightly
Like good yarn and clenched teeth
I’m wound up so tightly
So don’t tie yourself to me

Is this skin
Tie yourself to me
Is this skin
Tie yourself to me
Is this skin
Enough to be wrapped up in
