“HANDS AND KNEES” LYRICS

The Goodnight – “Hands And Knees”

[Verse 1]
“You can never catch me.” I used to think that way
I’ve made my share of mistakes
but I need a warning so when it’s time to turn away
I can think of where I’m going

It’s like a bad dream and I’m the one thing
that all these people need to feed their self-esteem
And I’m the next thing to the best thing
so take my hands and tie me without a warning

[Pre-Chorus]
You told me “It can’t be so bad”
turns out it so much worse than that
If I could just relax, and react
before we fall off track

[Chorus]
I’m on my hands and knees, hands and knees, tied at the feet
What about a warning? What about my hands and knees?
Crawling desperately, tied at the feet
What about a warning?

[Verse 2]
I was in the wrong place, the wrong state at the wrong time
It never crossed my mind
until I started talking while they were testing me
I guess I must have said the wrong thing

It’s like a bad dream and I’ve got something
that helps these people see the devil inside me
and I’m the next thing to the best thing
so take my hands and time me up until the morning

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus 2]
I’m on my hands and knees, hands and knees, tied at the feet
What about a warning? What about my hands and knees?
Crawling desperately, tied at the feet
What about a warning?

What about when you told me “It can’t be so bad”
Turns out it’s so much worse than that
On my hands and knees, hands and knees, tied at the feet
What about a warning?

[Chorus 3]

[Outro]
Oh God, just help me relax, react, relax
If i could just relax, react, relax
