slowly read the letter again
i sign my name to it
i don't understand
i can't get my head around it

and all i'll ever try

not to doubt you
not to do this
not to play it out
a replayed reply

no go, let go
let go, let go

fall over, fall over, fall over, fall over, fall over
follow me, follow me
follow me, follow me
follow me down
i'll stay
