White Lies – As I Try Not To Fall Apart Lyrics

White Lies As I Try Not To Fall Apart Lyrics, As I Try Not To Fall Apart Lyrics by White Lies

Am I a faulty kind of man so tender in the heart?
Are clues embedded in my hands, a horoscope of cards
No, I’m no special grain of sand or undiscovered star
If there’s a great and holy plan I’d rather have no part

Ain’t that the way, ain’t that the way
You always unwind my head, unmake the bed like Sunday
Ain’t that the way, ain’t that the way
You get me talking to the dead and questioning if I’m alive at all

Why every morning waking up
Must I try not to fall, must I try not to fall apart?
You take me in your grateful arms
And I try not to fall, oh I try not to fall apart
It’s not the way a man like me behaves
It’s not the way the world would have me play my part
Then why does every fibre shake
As I try not to fall apart, as I try not to fall apart?

Am I a lone unlucky man, no shimmer to my soul?
Am I a spindle wound too tight, a fraction of a whole
No, I’ve no party tricks, my hand is empty as a vault
If there’s a charge, oh then I’ll stand and do the time for every fault

Ain’t that the way, ain’t that the way
You always unwind my head, unmake the bed like Sunday
Ain’t that the way, ain’t that the way
You get me talking to the dead and questioning if I’m alive at all

Why every morning waking up
Must I try not to fall, must I try not to fall apart?
You take me in your grateful arms
And I try not to fall, oh I try not to fall apart
It’s not the way a man like me behaves
It’s not the way the world would have me play my part
Then why does every fibre shake
As I try not to fall apart, as I try not to fall apart?

Ain’t that the way, ain’t that the way
You always unwind my head unmake the bed like Sunday
Ain’t that the way, ain’t that the way
You get me talking to the dead and questioning if I’m alive at all
Why every morning waking up
Must I try not to fall, must I try not to fall apart?
You take me in your grateful arms
And I try not to fall, oh I try not to fall apart
It’s not the way a man like me behaves
It’s not the way the world would have me play my part
Then why does every fibre shake
As I try not to fall apart, as I try not to fall apart?

As I try not to fall apart
As I try not to fall apart
As I try not to fall apart
As I try not to fall apart
