only me, only you: lyrics: blue cartoon

i could tell by your smile – you don’t see the way that i do
all this time, in your arms – you’ve been poking me, like voodoo

i can’t tell if it’s only me or only you

we got close long ago – after you stepped up to meet me
i was fine, before you came – now i need someone to keep me

if it’s you – then i have tried
if it’s me – then i can’t see it
it was you – who paralyzed
if it’s me – i can’t explain it
i can’t tell if it’s only you or only me

then something cooled, when we got close – like a freeze frame in a movie
you pulled away like sliding glass – closed your eyes, but didn’t tell me

if it’s you – then i have tried
if it’s me – i can’t explain it

bridge

if it’s you – then i have tried
if it’s me – then i can’t see it
it was you – who paralyzed
if it’s me – i can’t explain it

can’t explain
