Gun-Shy

Grizzly Bear

The sky keeps staring at me
Frozen in my tracks
(Nothing else to see)
And when I move my face left
You're always standing there
(A shadow I can't see)
And even then I can't trace
Your walking away

I put my ears to the ground
Always pushing down
(Nothing I can hear)
I found the worst half in me
I'm cut off at the knees
(Can't even take a stand)
Against your words and beliefs
I didn't wanna freeze

(All of the years, leaving me here
Gun-shy)
I don't wanna say it all again
Everything you see
(Why) Do I always feel it all the same
This is in my eye
A guide that has only led me astray
And even as I live (you smile)

The cold keeps tearing at me
Slowing down my blood
(Unable to speak)
I left my mind long ago
Choosing something false
(Always letting go)
And when I try to face you
You're walking away

(All of the years, leaving me here
Gun-shy)
I don't wanna say it all again
Everything you see
(Why) Do I always feel it all the same
This is in my eye
A guide that has only led me astray
And even as I live (you smile)
