lyrics

It started with a hum as the orchestra sings
And the warming of the strings
Steady like a hand going through withdrawal
Open like a fist before the fall

‘Cause driving off the edge seemed a whole lot better
Than waiting for the ground beneath to rise
‘Cause driving off the edge seemed a whole lot better
Than waiting for the ground

So darn close
We almost got it right
We were so darn close
We almost got it right

Put me in the back of an empty truck
Tether my hands and shut me up
I waited for the crash of a similar drive
Open my head and let me dive

We were so darn close
Waiting for the air to come and take the wheel
We were so darn close
Gravity won't care how close we came or that we almost had it all
We almost got it right

We were so darn close to having a good day
We were so darn close to having a good day
