Lyrics

[Verse 1]

If you're listening, whoa

Sing it back, whoa

String from your tether unwinds, whoa, whoa oh

Up and outward to bind, whoa, whoa

[Chorus]

I was spinning free, whoa

With a little sweet and simple numbing me

[Verse 2]

Are you listening? Whoa

Sing it back, whoa

So, tell me what do I need, whoa, whoa

When words lose their meaning, whoa, whoa

[Chorus]

I was spinning free, whoa

With a little sweet and simple numbing me, yeah

Stumble 'til you crawl, whoa

Sinking into sweet uncertainty

[Interlude]

Are you listening? Are you listening?

[Verse 3]

If you're listening, whoa (If you're listening, are you listening?)

Sing it back, whoa (If you're listening, are you listening?)

And I'm still running away, whoa, whoa oh

Won't play your hide and seek game, whoa, whoa


[Chorus] I was spinning free, whoa With a little sweet and simple numbing me What a dizzy dance, whoa And the sweetness will not be concerned with me [Outro]

No, the sweetness will not be concerned with me No, the sweetness will not be concerned with me
