I am two people wrapped in one
A calculated honey and a single smoking gun
I carry half of all that you bear
And I live inside a house that we've built and that we share
I try to recombine myself so I'm not torn apart
So I can see a future with a single beating heart
But I get in trouble because you make me leave
A part of me outside the door I don't have time to feed

So please
Leave room for us to breathe

I have two visions in my mind
In one I roam round' England
In the other I am tied
To a ring around my finger that keeps me firmly on the ground
To a life my thoughts get lost in never to be found
But in the other I am lonely and have killed you once again
I'll have freedom
I'll have silence
But I'll lose my only friend

So please
Leave room for me to breathe

And I know I'm young and I'm naive
But I'm standing on the edge
