How can I think I'm standing strong?
How can happiness feel so wrong?

Then break my dreams the way you do.
Why did I fall in love with you?
I have ever been.
This is the nearest thing to crazy
But I was never crazy on my own.
That there's a link between the two,

Then break my fall with lovin lies.
It's so easy to close your eyes.
How can you treat me like a child?
How can anyone feel so wild?

This is the closest thing to crazy
Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen.
I have ever known.
And now I know
Being close to craziness, and being close to you
And being close to you
