Are You Ten Years Ago - Tegan and Sara

Taken I am yours
I'm up and doing circles
I collapse

I might stay out longer than
I left the light on for you then
If you show you show
When I feel like this, when I get so into myself
I lose track of where I'm going then, lose track of how to get going again
Feel myself slowing down
Feel myself turning around
Is this taken?

When I feel like this, when I get so sick of myself
Where are you going then, without me
And not knowing then, that we're slowing down
You've got to turn right around
And tell me that I'm taken then
Tell me if I'm yours

You collapse
The pressure of this life is so you can't be held accountable
If you go you go

When you act like this, when you get so sick of yourself
The whole world falls away, and since
I feel like I have only missed
The feeling that I'm here again
The feeling that I'm clear again
I'm not taken

When you act like this, when you get so into yourself
I lose sight of common goals and letting go
So I can be all alone
Feel myself going slow, feel myself letting go

Not taken, not feeling like I'm yours
Taken I am yours
I'm up and doing circles
I collapse
This life looks like a sentence, though a constant game of falling short

If you know you know
When I feel like this, when I'm just so sick of feeling less than perfect
Isn't right for me, I never fight to see if coming clean would get to me

I feel myself holding back, I feel the pressure, it's finally back, I'm taken
When you felt like this, when you saw it all come crashing down
Subtle but not underground, I was there
I saw the signs I saw unfair and so I wrote to you through other means
I let myself finally feel taken
Like I was yours
