« Back to Lyrics

paperbacks you’ve given me that
I don’t read but like to see
lying ’round the house in pairs
reminding me that you’re out there
mirrors in the afternoon
that I don’t need ’cause I know you
already see me as I am
and this is how it feels
this is how it feels
this is how it feels
to be loved
I find reasons not to go
get out clauses not to show
all the wounds that bring along their ghosts
self inflicted hurt the most
I’m tentative a cat on ice
creatures startled by the light
so you’d better let me cry a while but you just smile and say
baby let’s go
and this is how it feels, this is how it feels
baby do you wanna go
this is how it feels
this is how it feels, baby let’s go now
this is how it feels
to be loved
