Step back

Song I've written called: Step back

Look through me
Tell me what you see in me

Just scream
Tell me
Everything you've never told me

I see you walk twords me
It makes me wanna run away
That's what I'm best at
When my feelings get all crazy

I pent it all up inside
I wanna let it out
All the feelings 
That I usually hide

I don't need to cry
I just need to breathe
Step back, relax
And just scream

Cause I can see myself
Drowning inside your eyes
And I like the feeling
Like I'm falling through the sky

Gravity is on your side
And I don't know where to hide
Cause right now the only place
That I wanna be
Is sitting next to you
Sitting next to me

I wanna scream and
I wanna breathe and
Baby, baby
This is what I need

Hold me, kiss me
Never, never miss me
Love me, see me
I want you to feel me
And tell me, tell me
Everything you've never told me

Ah, ah
Can't you see
This is all I need
Step back, relax
And just breathe, for me
And listen to my words, baby

I wanna hold you, hold you
And never, never lose you
Love you, love you
I just wanna touch you

And tell you, tell you
Everything I've never told you.
