lyrics

I don't know what to say anymore
I don't know where to tell you to turn
If the present comes only disguised as the past
I don't know what you're looking to hear
I make myself strong when you're about to collapse
when the ache in my own heart is overtaking me fast
I see you giving up and I don't want you to settle
Let's be honest with ourselves we are knitting the nettles
And there are days when we can laugh
The clouds break letting us relax
But there are days our hopes melt like snow
They disappear so slow and steady
When they're gone we won't be ready while we are
knitting the nettles
I lower my eyes again to the toil between my hands
but I catch a glimpse of us from time to time
Finally letting princes find their own way through the night
I make myself strong when you're about to collapse
When the ache in my own heart is overtaking me fast
I see you giving up and I don't want you to settle
Let's be honest with ourselves we are knitting the nettles
