I wouldn't mind if you told me I was wasting time
It's hard for me here trying to say these things with you so near
I'm already undone, already undone

Now is the time I should leave these useless things behind
But fool that I am, I try to stay inside of your latest plan
I'm already undone

This time I promised myself that I wouldn't sink so far
But here I am, I'm wrapped around you in the glow of this empty bar
I wish I could hold my tongue and finally say goodnight.
Am I holding on too tight?

Hours ago I could pride myself on some control
But plans that I've made disappear with every drink that's laid
I'm already undone, already undone

Yeah, there's a way but I can't even keep one single word I say
And I've been wrapped around your finger from the very first day
I wish my legs would work and I could run out in the night
Am I holding on too tight?

I wouldn't mind if you put me out of my hurt some time
I'm waving the flag, chasing beauty shouldn't be such a drag
I'm already undone, already undone

Now I am lost and I can't even feel my head
While you and all your friends are laughing about something you wish you'd said
I wish I could just reach up and turn out every light.
Am I holding on too tight?
Yes I know I'm holding on too tight.
